Canadian collective play afternoon set in King Tut's Wah Wah tent
Broken Social Scene helped kick of the second day of the T In The Park festival this afternoon (July 10), playing in the King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent.
The Canadian collective played in front of a large crowd – possibly bulked by a large number of fans seeking shelter from the rain as conditions got muddy and damp on the Balado site.
The band, fronted by Kevin Drew, and boasting with between six and eight members on various songs throughout the set, played tracks from their recent album ‘Forgiveness Rock Record’ plus a selection of older numbers.
“It’s a beautiful day!” joked Drew before ‘Texaco Bitches’, later introducing ‘Forced To Love’ as a song about “how things are pushed on us in the modern world.”
They ended their set with ‘Meet Me In The Basement’ then headed off to make way for Kate Nash, who is up in the tent next.
Broken Social Scene played:
‘Stars And Sons’
‘Fire Eyed Boy’
‘Forced To Love’
‘All To All
‘Meet Me In The Basement’
