Live Gig Video: Boats perform at Canada House showcase at the Great Escape 2013

Saturday afternoon at the Great Escape 2013 I was at a loss of who to see next and I basically just scoured the programme for a band I’d never heard of and took a chance with it.

The band I ended up seeing at the Canada House showcase (yes, I saw bands other than British ones!) at the Blind Tiger was Winnipeg, Canada’s Boats, who turned out to be the quirkiest band at the Great Escape this year I would have never had the chance of knowing about if I hadn’t taken that risk. I suppose all bands from Canada who aren’t from the major cities of Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal have the cross to bear that they’ll always be deemed outsiders, but in this song called ‘Advice on Bears’, Boats seems to take this all in stride. You can read the full report of my day 3 afternoon here.
