Jazz Festival - Gastown

Went to the Vancouver Jazz festival's free shows in Gastown today. The Mystery Groove Band was Bullfrog, featuring Kid Koala. So in the last three years, the Mystery Groove Band on Saturday evening in Gastown has played at the Commodore either on Sunday or Friday, which makes the guessing game... rather easy.

For what it's worth, Herbaliser was by far the best. Live, they exhibit a lot more energy than the downtempo, laid-back vibe I get from their recordings. The Cinematic Orchestra was a big letdown for me, and Bullfrog was pretty good but not quite as great as Herbaliser.

Last year, Antibalas was the Jazz festival's inaugural Mystery World Beat band at the Roundhouse/David Lam free weekend. I missed out cause it was deathly hot that day and I couldn't summon the energy to get out and go. This year, there is no such mystery band. Too bad.
