2014 was the Canada Day that became cool.
The festivities at Alderney Landing started with Alert The Medic, The Belle Game, and Ben Caplan. July Talk and Sam Roberts Band filled the free outdoor venue until the end of the night. Alderney Landing is now my favourite local venue for outdoor shows. The raised stage allows the entire audience to enjoy a view, which also decreases the amount of up-front pushin'-and-shovin' for prime spots.
