Rock the Shores 2015 Edition

Ten thousand people gathered at 2015 Rock the Shores in Colwood, BC.
This is what 10000 people look like...
For the second year in a row, my wife and I took in Rock The Shores, a two-day outdoor concert located in nearby Colwood. We only attended the first day of the event along with 9998 other people!

Temperatures hit a sweltering 30 degrees C, but the organizers did an excellent job of providing cooling stations, and water stations where you could fill up your water bottle for free. Wisely, lots of people also brought umbrellas.

The lineup included seventeen bands. Although I was stoked to see The Black Keys and 54-40, the best band on the first day by far was Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. There isn't actually an Edward Sharpe in the folk-rock band, but quirky lead singer Alex Ebert entertained by wading into the audience to sing and converse with some of his fans.
