The Year’s Best Guitar Faces

Monster Truck - face

Everyone is releasing their end of year lists, so here’s one of mine. The best guitar faces of the year. What is a guitar face? Let me explain, you know that moment when the band is on stage, the crowd is overexcited and that song comes on and everyone just feels it? The togetherness, the bond, well if you spend all of your time watching the lead singer going to town you’re missing the real show. The guitarist the one to watch, the faces that appear are innocently  purely of someone in the moment, enjoying what they do and not caring about anything else. It’s that magical moment, and no one guitar face is quite like the other. So, enjoy the ones I’ve experienced thus far.

Shakey Graves and Angus & Julia Stone @ Osheaga

A seductive pair they are. The brother and sister enticed crowds into swaying with their sultry voices that tempted and teased as the sunset. Julia Stone is a vixen that emanates a sexual energy, dressed innocently, she provoked with her voice and her dance moves. Angus watched, plucking his guitar and waiting for his turn to take the mic.

Angus & Julia Stone @ Osheaga 2“Hey, how you guys doing?” He asked. “You good? That’s good.” Hidden behind sunglasses, a hat, and a barricade of facial hair, his chilled demeanour seemed to diminish as soon as he poured his soul on the stage.

Changing pace for the crowd favourite, Big Jet Plane, by taking an acoustic approach and offering a different melody, the performer led fans into the change. And soon the audience offered their voices for the rest of the song.

Walking on stage to chants of “Shakey”, Alejandro Rose-Garcia otherwise known as his stage name, Shakey Graves took the stage in a different attire than fans were used to. Without a cowboy hat, the singer gave a performance that fully satisfied fans making them one of the loudest crowds at the smaller stages.
