On July 5, 2015 Orville Peck and Feist headed to the Coca-Cola stage at Calgary stampede to perform a mix of upbeat songs you can get up and dance to and raw acoustic intimate songs.
I was absolutely gushing when Orville Peck started off the show with an energetic performance that managed to get the crowd pumped up for the rest of the night. The Alternative/Country artist performed fan favorites such as “Dead of Night” and “Winds Change” and many more. One very interesting thing regarding Orville Peck is his utilization of different masks to hide his identity while performing on stage – probably cause no one likes being bombarded by fans on the street when you’re trying to run errands like getting groceries!
1234….The sun started to set, and local Calgary artist Feist came out to perform a set filled with her hits such as “1234” “Fire in The Water” and “Mushaboom.” Feist came out in a stunning floral dress and white heeled boots. The entire crowd went silent during each song, and you could really tell that everyone was in complete awe of her voice, waiting till her last note of each song before they would start to roar and cheer in admiration.
