2011/07/02 Saint-Éphrem-de-Beauce, Quebec, Canada: Woodstock-en-Beauce Festival


Theres a lot of Canada that they wisely designated as "the hinterlands" many years ago - or perhaps there simply arent enough Canadians to fill up all the land they have! Either way, we are deep in the Canadian hinterlands today, marveling at the natural beauty and small town good vibes. The good vibe small town in question is Saint-Georges, which is a few miles from the Woodstock-en-Beauce festival site. The whole area is about 60 miles south of Quebec City, and only about 30 miles north from the border of another hinterland-laden area, the US state of Maine.

Now that the geography lesson is complete, we move on to rock, roll and a big old festival thereof. Today is the 4th day of the annual 5 day Woodstock-en-Beauce Festival, which features a decidedly eclectic mix of bands from around the globe. Like Weezer, Pat Benatar, and good ol' Fringants, et Grimskunk even. (see the full massive list here)

We are stoked to be playing the same day as the legendary Pat Benatar and hopefully can catch some of her set, as its on a different stage.

Thanks so much for the amazing show at Woodstock! I waited an hour before the show to get a good spot. I was surrounded by 20 year old kids and I felt like a little 20 year olk kid myself (and I'm 40 now ;o))! I've known Weezer since the beginning (blue album). Was at the University back then. Always been a big fan. I play in a band called The Counselors (www.thecounselorsmusic.com and we were playing the same day at Woodstock but on the smaller stage. Since Weezer had played in TO the night before, I thought Weezer would be arriving later in the day but you guys apparently arrived early morning. I wanted to talk to Rivers and give him my 2 CDs. He's always been a big influence musically and inspired me to keep playing music. I really wish I could have met you guys and talk a little bit. I met Andrew and Jack's Mannequin tour manager back stage at the other stage and they offered me a pair of tickets for the Mtl show (very nice of them!). Unfortunately I couldn't make it to Mtl. Anyways, I've been playing music for a long time and it's always been hard for us to reach bigger audience and I just wanted to give my CDs to Rivers so that he lets me know what he thinks about it and maybe refer me to someone in NY or LA who could help us in our 'career'. From our web site, you can download our latest EP for free. http://thecounselors.bandcamp.com/album/brooklyn-sessions

Please, let me know what you think of the music and if you could refer me to someone who could help us, that would be amazing! I would be forever grateful. I'm so disapointed I couldn't met you guys (I didn't have the bigger stage backstage pass...). Here's my personal email address: requiem15@yahoo.com

 

Cheers and please come back to Quebec City one day!

We were at the show saturday night in St-Ephrem.  What a show, Weezer Rocks!

I'm from St-Georges, I'm a big Weezer fan and I thought I was the only one in the area... 

I'm glad, I'M NOT ALONE.  People were singing and seems to enjoy the show!

In the camping area after the show, it was unanimous, it was a Rock show and a good one!  (no offense to Pat Benatar...   )

Godsmack was there friday night and unfortunately, the sound wasn't that good.  Well, it was not that bad, but not loud enough.  Weezer show was loud and clean!

 

Weezer Rules!

 

Rock' on!
