This year’s SappyFest lineup is like a giant spider’s web, featuring artists that seem to all be connected. For example, The Constantines are playing a reunion show. Con’s members Steve Lambke (Baby Eagle) and Bry Webb are also playing solo sets over the long weekend. Bry Webb sings a song on Michael Feuerstack’s Singer Songer album from earlier this year. Tamara Lindeman (The Weather Station) released a duet last year with Baby Eagle. EONS is the project of Matt Cully who plays in Bruce Peninsula, a band that Lindeman is part of. Bruce Peninsula releases music through Toronto label Hand Drawn Dracula. Hand Drawn Dracula artists Dusted and Cousins both play this year. Wet Denim features Lee Dotey of Cousins. Duzheknew released a split cassette with Cousins in 2010. I could go on, but I think you get the point. This week’s Friday playlist features a track from almost every artists playing the festival. Press play and dream of long weekends in Sackville, N.B.
