This past weekend Threadtrend went to the Detour Festival. The line up for this year’s festival was a varied list of acts (most of which had already been through the LA area many times earlier this year).
We are Wolves
We were lucky enough to get there bright and early to see one of the more fresh faces at the festival in We are Wolves, who hail from Montreal, Canada and have their current release Total Magique out now on Dare to Care records. This is their follow up to Non-Stop Je Te Plie en Duex, which featured “Little Birds,” a club banger a few years back. They played on stage 2 to a rather large crowd for such an early set. They had many cheering as they slayed through a near hour-long set of hard rocking and synth electro beats. They won the early birds over and put on one of the best sets of the day.
Here’s a song from there new album: Fight and Kiss
Grand Ole Party
Hercules & Love Affair
Go Go Bordello
The Black Lips
The rest of the day we saw sets from Grand Ole Party, Data Rock, The Black Lips (another highlight), Go Go Bordello, The Presets, Hercules & Love Affair, Mars Volta and the hands down festival highlight that was Cut Copy’s set:
Cut Copy played to a jam-packed audience, and they even had the photo pit jumping and dancing around, but it was a sight to see during “Lights and Music” the whole crowd jumping up and down and singing along. One of the breakout acts of the year, they totally blew away the festival headliners and all anyone was talking about at the after party was Cut Copy.
