Imaginary Cities is one of the bands performing at Harvest Moon (Angel Ceballos)
It's a festival where you can do yoga, learn animation, make some soap and find out how to turn old bale twine into rope. The 11th annual Harvest Moon Festival also has food for vegans, vegetarians and carnivores as well as beverages from local craft brewery, Half Pints.
But Harvest Moon also boasts a healthy roster of local musicians, so SCENE decided to put together this list of the Top 5 things to watch by the light of the giant, glowing moon.
5. JP Hoe
After his set at the festival, JP Hoe will be jumping in his tour van and hitting spots all over Canada. There's no rhyme or reason to the pattern as far as we can tell. Check the dates and see for yourself...
4. Federal Lights
Winnipeg buzz band Federal Lights released their debut EP, Carbon, in July. After a few more festival dates, the band will be heading back into the studio to wrap recording on their first full length. Expected release date is February, 2013.
3. Greg MacPherson
Greg MacPherson will be driving back from a show in Regina for his set on Saturday night. He will have driven 10,000 kms in a week! He may be a bit tired. Cheer loudly.
2. Imaginary Cities
Imaginary Cities is just back in Winnipeg after a show at Lollapalooza in Chicago. This is their first home province gig since being part of that iconic festival.
1. Del Barber
Del Barber will be on the road this fall, and he's working on a full length feature music documentary with the folks who've done similar work with The Weakerthans and The Sheepdogs.
