With the world’s eyes on Canada and the various variations on sliding, slipping, falling over and leaping that is going on right now in British Colombia, Oh! Canada returns to remind everybody that Canada isn’t just about drawing on to the button in the house (curling), or successfully overcoming wutangs (ski-across). Indeed, musical celebration seems to have been integral to the Vancouver Games – the nation embracing the idea of the cultural olympiad seemingly as much as the sporting one. With huge shows from the likes of Broken Social Scene, Dan Mangan, Sloan, Metric, Deadmau5, Feist and more, the whole event seems to have been very TLOBF friendly. We can only hope that London embraces and supports British acts in a similar way, rather than just wheeling out the usual suspects. Fingers Crossed.
