Jazzfest Report- Dirty Lowdown

Recommended Posts

Now I know for sure that Lido Shuffle is not a Billy Joel song.  I used to think that it was until one day, I had searched google…but I didn't know what the lyrics were from listening.  Lita? Litto?

I searched on "whoa whoa whoa" and "one more for the road" and learned it was a Boz Scaggs song called Lido Shuffle.  aha!

Another thing I learned last night was that Lowdown was his tune.  I heard Pleasurecraft cover that many times. very cool song.

Cool show during the last 1/2 hour.  the first chunk was way too cheesy and sound was weird, like the guitars weren't wired up to the mains.  Later, it all came together when they landed into lowdown, lido, etc.

"Jazz-fest has successfully rolled itself, temporarily, across Laurier to Festival Plaza"

- knowing where the After-Dark tent is usually, how have they fit the main stage on that side as well? 

(edit 1:  from this https://twitter.com/myleneabizeid/status/1010012187727761409 it looks like the stage is near Laurier and faces east.  I guess tartan stage would have to be almost directly beside this)

 

(edit 2:  it seems they have it shown on google maps this year rather than an illustration, https://ottawajazzfestival.com/2018-jazz-festival-map-carte-festival-de-jazz-2018 and tartan stage is over on Lisgar field)

"leaves the average music lover who didn't bring a chair and doesn't mind being with other people' section quite a small slice"

- gets worse every year.   and this time around we're supposed to sit on the concrete ?

Hey tbone! I think Festival Plaza is a temporary site while they fix up the sewers at Confederation Park. It isn't ideal, but it's a nice convenient alternative! The Tartan stage is definitely over on the Lisgar field- same tent.
