A Hillside Moment - Final Fantasy

I normally keep my blog's content strictly on political/historical matters. But every so often, there is the occasional personal anecdote or cool happening that requires a post. This is one such occasion.

Every July, Guelph is host to the Hillside Festival, a weekend-long community music festival that has become so popular that weekend passes sell out within a matter of a couple of hours when they go on sale in May - before the complete performance line-up has been announced. I've gone for all or part of the festival every year since arriving in Guelph, and have always had some fun memories of it. But nothing compares to the thunderstorm-filled weekend a week ago when we saw Final Fantasy (aka Owen Pallett) perform as the thunderheads rolled in. A few very skillful fans recorded his performance as the heavens opened. Enjoy!

Congratulations to the stage crew for safely getting him through that number!
