Sloan – Canada Day in Kanata 2011

Sloan – Canada Day in Kanata
After surviving my trip downtown into the ‘sea of red’, I returned home, had a short rest, enjoyed a nice BBQ meal with friends and then headed over to Walter Baker Park in Kanata where Sloan was performing on the main stage.

The toboggan hill was packed with spectators enjoying the beautiful weather and this year there appeared to be fewer mosquitoes than I remember from other years.

Tech: For the following shots, I was able to be close enough to the stage to use my Nikkor MF 105mm f2.5 lens which I enjoy using due to its small size and light weight compared to my other AF lenses in that focal length.

The band recently released their new album Double Crossed so equipment and stage crew were decked out in the XX logo to promote this new album.
