Sam Roberts Band
Juan De Fuca Recreation Centre, Victoria BC, July 14
Like many of the bands booked to play the festival, the Sam Roberts Band's set was full of songs from their award-winning career that had virtually everyone in the crowd singing along at some point. From "Brother Down" to "Where Have all the Good People Gone" the band continued the weekend's nostalgic feel but also included songs from his new album, expected out in the fall.
The Sam Roberts Band did what they aimed to do when they got on the stage — they finished the set they started the year before. And it was a clean, fun and enthusiastic set, which took you back to 2000 when the Sam Roberts Band began.
