Partner - Let The Chips Fall Where They May

Wavelength's sixteenth anniversary festival was a little less adventurous than last year's sesquidecade spectacular. For the first time in recent memory, the festival settled into one home base for three nights and the programming eschewed retrospective turns for a future-focused weekend, daring audiences to invest in the musical here-and-now. The lone excursion away from The Garrison came with this afternoon all-ages show in Markham Village — a cozy up-close-and-personal affair that offered a chance to sit on the floor and listen. The field trip vibe was completed with a school bus ride that shuttled attendees away to the evening show. This Sackville duo, still riding the hype of their recent viral video, supplemented their main evening set with this acoustic amuse-bouche. Working as much as a slacker comedy tag-team, Lucy Niles and Josée Caron punctuated their songs with oodles of personality. There'd be more "shred" in the mix later in the day, but stripping the songs back revealed hints of Veruca Salt and a soupçon of Plumtree.
