Phillips’ ‘Tilt!’ kicks off with Hotel Mira and Half Moon Run (PHOTOS)

Share

The first edition of Phillips Backyard Music Series, ‘Tilt!’ kicked off with a bang last night in Victoria!

The brewery’s backyard was packed with music lovers from throughout the island and beyond.

There were five bands that took over the festival in the heat of the day and made everyone in attendance dance and sing along.

There were also a plethora of food trucks, merch vendors were selling the bands’ wares and there were plenty of shady spots to sit and escape the sun. 

The day started out around 5 p.m. with locals OK Charlie, who are new on the scene having only played shows for three months. 

They were recently featured as The Zone @ 91-3’s Band of the Month and they showed attendees why. 

Following OK Charlie, Vox Rea took the backyard’s stage for the second time, having played at last year’s Rifflandia.

The band, which is fronted by two sisters, showed everyone why they were invited back—especially when they brought out a couple members of OK Charlie to sing Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” as their closing song. 

After Vox Rea, Hotel Mira came out to party, bringing with them the essence of Mick Jagger in how their singer commanded the stage. 

They brought with them cue cards with lyrics to help attendees sing along and they taught the crowd a sing-a-long in the process. 

Half Moon Run was next and they brought with them the best three-part harmonies in the business. 

Last, but definitely not least, Saint Motel wrapped up the evening with a set that no one will forget. 

Check out all the photos from last evening below, stay tuned for more photos throughout the weekend on Victoria Buzz—and if you haven’t got tickets to Tilt or Reverb yet, get them while you can!
