2010 Wakestock Canada Day 3

Lots of photos in this post.

Got up late the last day and had to pack and get out of our loft by 11:00am.  We said goodbye to Jonathan and headed out to find some breakfast before the bands started.  Ate at the Beaver & Bulldog, which was pretty good and we all drank tons of coffee to try and get our lives back together.

After breakfast we made a pit stop at Zellers to get wellies and ended up staying there for about an hour trying things on.  Casie & Lauren got kids pajamas superhero costumes to wear and they looked hilarious.

Got to Wakecock Wakestock just in time for the shuttle to take us in.  So happy we didn’t have to walk the whole way.  It was pretty far and we were a little hung.  Love the VIP treatment.

First band we saw was called The Katacombs – a rockabilly/punk band out of Barrie and they were pretty good.  The bass player played a stand up bass and he was killing it. I’ve never really listened to much rockabilly music but I think I’m going to check out some more.

After a few songs we went over to check out the Wakeboarding finals.  These guys were crazy!  There were two walls – one higher then the other – and they were doing tricks and jumping on and off them.  I know nothing about Wakeboarding so I can’t tell you what they did, but it looked cool.  I really wanted to try it out this weekend, but maybe next year.

We walked around to check out what else was going on and Virgin Mobile had one of those carnival games where you hit something with a big hammer and see how strong you are.  I think Raymi was the strongest hitter out of all of us.  Apparently I’m a weakling, but I looked good doing it :)

One of my favourite girls, Tiffany was working the Virgin Mobile game so we got to hang with her and get some sunglasses.  She’s such a sweetheart and I really need to see more of her.  We went and checked out the Sprite Splash Mob rope swing into the water.  They wanted us to try it out but there was no way any of us were going to get wet and jump in a cold lake.  Casie’s friends took the plunge and it looked like a lot of fun.  Those boys were brave!

Got back to the stage in time to see our new friends Rebel Emergency play.  There was a smaller crowd on Sunday due to the cold, rainy weather but we danced and took a ton of pics anyway.  The band was all smiles as soon as they recognized us.  We definitely started the party on Sunday.

After Rebel Emergency was Hollerado and then my new favourite artist KO.  I have wanted to see him perform since I heard the Capable single on the radio and he didn’t disappoint.  The drummer & bass player from Rebel Emergency played with him and I was really impressed with his voice and live show.  I’ll hopefully have an interview with him to post up in the next couple of weeks.  Until then check out his Myspace page for videos/music.  I’m lovin Capable & Kurt Cobain (which is below).

I had the best time going to Wakestock with Casie, Raymi & Lauren.  It was a great experience and thank you so much to Jonathan, Zeke, Alison, Lawrence and the rest of the Wakestock team for taking care of us.  I can’t wait to come up next year and hopefully we can bring some of you guys!

2010 Wakestock Canada Day 2

Woke up to Jonathan making us breakfast.  A little tired from the night before but didn’t drink too much so after a tea I was good to go.  Took 4 girls a while to get ready – I don’t think Jonathan was prepared for how ridiculous we are.  We were tweeting, taking photos, changing outfits, taking more photos…  Finally got out of the house and made it to Wakestock by 2:00pm.  The line up was huge but luckily we had media passes to bypass it.

First stop was to check out the skatepark and there were some sick skaters & bmx bikers doing tricks.  I tried to catch the guys doing backflips on the bike’s but they were too fast for me.

Our media passes allowed us to stand in the photo pit for the first 3 songs of each artist and we took full advantage.  Got tons of photos, videos and danced our asses off.  Didn’t make it in time to see The Set or King Cobra so the first band we saw was USS.  I’ve met the guys a few times with Kyle but hadn’t seen a live show yet.  They were so awesome!  Jay aka Human Kebob the DJ wore a blue warm up suit with white stars all over it.  He danced his ass off, crowd surfed, and got everyone screaming.  Ash Boo-Schultz was killing in on guitar and vocals while making a smoothie throughout the set.

They were joined on stage by their friends Edward & Jacob and then finally a guest performance by Maestro Fresh Wes.   I was so excited to hear Wes perform.  I’ve known him through my sister Kristin for a few years now, they were in Metropia & Instant Star together.

After the set we got backstage passes from Allison (thank you so much!) and I went to Wes to see if he remembered me.  He gave me a huge hug and said he just talked to my sister and asked if I had a camera.  I said yes and he grabbed my hand and took me to a tour bus.  Knocked on the door and a HUGE security guard answered, Wes said “she’s with me” and we walk onto the bus and who is sitting at the table CHUCK D!!!  Wes introduced me and I shook his hand and then took photos of Wes and Chuck with a copy of Wes’ book Stick To Your Vision.  That was the highlight of my Wakestock weekend.

After USS we walked around the main area and made some friends in the crowd.  Took lots of photos and signed a couple t-shirts.  Ran into friends of Casie‘s from New Zealand and they were super nice.  Also saw my friend Tiffany – she’s such a babe.

We headed back to the photo pit for Alexisonfire – it was my first time seeing them live as well and they were really good.  After the first 3 songs we went to stand sidestage to watch the rest of the set and that was pretty cool.

Ran into some friends from the Edge, Dean & Todd and hung out in the Virgin Mobile tent backstage with Paul & Amber.  So good to see you guys!

Got to hang out with some of the Public Enemy crew while they were waiting for their KFC to show up.  Too funny.  Said hi to Flavor Flav but didn’t get a photo with him.  Michie Mee did a special guest appearance before Public Enemy and it was my first time seeing her as well.

Flavor Flav came out next and did a drum solo – which was pretty interesting.  He has so much energy and I can’t believe he’s 61!  So crazy that he is still performing and he was just as good as someone half his age.  Did the photo pit for Public Enemy’s first three songs and then we got to stand side stage again!  It was so awesome to watch them and we were really lucky to stand side stage, thanks to Raymi‘s friend Lawrence.

After Public Enemy we got a golf cart limo back to our car.  So nice not to walk after walking around all day.  Boys kept jumping on the back and we had to yell at them to get off.  Stupid boys.

Wewent back to the loft with Jonathan to eat and get ready for the after party.  We didn’t take as long as before and all 4 of us were ready – photos taken – and out the door in 2 hours.

Went to the crew hotel first to meet up with them and have some drinks and then took a shuttle over to the afterparty.  Such a fun time with these girls.  Always laughing, taking photos and tweeting :)

We walked in just in time for the bikini contest.  I’ve never been in one, and I don’t ever want to be.  It just isn’t me to stand up in front of a crowd, oiled up, shaking my ass in a bikini.  Ugh.  Todd was hosting and after they picked the winner Wes & Human Kebob performed.   Jonathan took us home around 1am and I crashed right away  Such a blast!

2010 Wakestock Canada – Day 1

Did a last minute pack after I finished my work for the morning and then headed over to Casie‘s to meet the girls.  Had the WORST cab driver – he forgot to turn the meter on til halfway and then drove me through the Roger’s center to make up for it – ignoring me telling him which way to go.

Packed Chad’s suitcase to take with me – I have enough clothes for a week and we’re only there for 2 nights.  Road-tripped the way up.  Sang some Lady Gaga & Metallica Car-aoke and filmed a nude wedges walk-off on our one stop.

Love the girls I’m hanging with this weekend.  So good to have positive girls that support each other on our Wakestock Party Girls Weekend.  It’s funny how we can all hang out and be texting/tweeting/FB-ing and still be having conversations.  Love knowing that I can keep on talking and everyone is paying attention :)

Got to our loft at Mountain Spring Resort and Jonathan was already there and waiting for us and he’d stocked up on candy & booze.  Our blond hurricane took over the place pretty fast and we got dressed to go eat in the Blue Mountain Village.  Went to eat at Copper Blues and the hostess was extremely rude to Raymi and then refused to accept Casie’s photo ID – so we got up and walked out.  Went over to Tholo’s and they had the nicest staff and best food.  We sat on the patio and it was pretty chilly so they brought us two propane heaters and we were golden.  Raymi the Foodie ordered us this amazing flambeed cheese called Saganaki and it was delicious.

After dinner we went back to the house to change and take photos before heading back to the Village for the Edge 102.1 Afterparty.  There were so many dumb, drunk jocks there and it was kind of ridiculous.  I’ll never understand why any guy thinks a good pick up line is to just grab a girl’s hair, shirt, hat.  We weren’t mean, just danced away until some idiot spilled his entire drink down O’Nizzle’s back and in her hair.  Good thing we were wearing our Zeugari suits underneath for a quick change.

Made some friends, got some drinks and danced front row to Rebel Emergency.  Awesome live band and we met the guys afterwards… of course they were already friends with my bro and his band.  Were gonna hang with them after the show but they showed up too late and we were in bed already.
