The arrival of autumn is a moment of realization when you belatedly confirm that the season of BBQ’s, chilling in the park, and scanning the streets for pretty ladies in short skirts, is finally over. It’s also the moment when you see that you never really made it through half of your TO DO list for the summer. On 33’s list, we had set aside the Piknic for September 23rd. We chose the 23rd because there is no 33rd on the calendar. What can you do, other than work with what you have?
We’re going to have to report what really happened, we fretted. So a big pat on the back to the boss for selecting DJs who tried to help us forget the temperature. Mission accomplished, guys. We particularly tripped over the GURU stage, where Montrealers J.A.S.S. offered up an explosion of tropical and jazzy rhythms. All that was missing was a glass of Sangria to feel like we were at Piknic @ Barcelona instead. And what to say of Pillowtalk’s disco-funk, other than that every piknicer had an ass shaking to their beats!
We had the right to a nice Piknic. Y’know, the type of Piknic that would’ve surely charmed the Poles of Catz N’ Dogs? We know that they understand winter in Poland – but $100 says that they’d go totally crazy for a night at Igloofest. So consider this your last call, pull out your best wool sweater for next Sunday – it’s the last Piknic of the season, aptly held with the theme of Igloofest in mind!
