Retarded and proud of it
Snowmobile on stage and beer in hand, the Quebec Redneck Bluegrass Project was like a band headlining in a francophone garden.

“Quebec, are you thirsty?” The band’s performance sang Choo Ben Color Soo Brush.
It was the violinist Madeleine Bouchard who had the honor of revving up the engine of the snowmobile that was on stage. She complied, in a cloud of smoke, while Quebecers chanted “Donnes-y du throttle! Popularity followed Pantera arctic cat triple 800clearly a crowd favorite.

Local ska punk was better
American bands Mustard Plug and Streetlight Manifesto spoke behind The Planet Smashers. Of the three line-ups that operate in ska punk, the Quebecers performed best.
Even if the fans in front of the stage seemed appreciative, a good portion of the audience took advantage of the Mustard Plug’s passage to go relieve themselves and drink. The basic part of this demo was flawless, but the song’s lyrics were a little less clear to understand.
The garden of the Francophonie was just beginning to empty when headliners, the Streetlight Manifesto, took the stage. However, they gave a high quality performance, which leaned more towards punk than ska.
