Along with Busker Fest (exactly when did giant-ass speakers become part of "busking," by the way?), Halifax can add another loud, and hopefully as crowded, August tradition---the return of Daft Punk Tribute. Let's face it, even though there are rumours of a 2010 tour, chances are good you're never going to see the real French-house deal, so why not let the laser show come to you, n'est-ce pas?
Expect a live band made up of Humber College music students with at least one robot and a ton of real instruments between them. Last summer James Ervin (robot/trumpet/EWI) told Coast writer Sam Worthington that, "We'll take stuff from live sets, and base a lot off of studio work, and then throw our own things in there. We've got four horns---why not use them for something a little differently?"
