Pat Robitaille at Indie Week 2017

Pat Robitaille has been making his mark on the indie scene for quite some time, so it’s no surprise that the Windsor expat’s live show is something to behold.

The singer-songwriter is an expert on stage, where he helms an acoustic guitar and a subtle tambourine. He also mixes live on stage for a remarkably full sound. Impressed yet? You should be—most singer-songwriters’ acoustic sets are best suited to a quiet cafe, not the Indie Week VIP Launch Party, where Pat played his heart out.

Either way, Pat’s set was a fun one, to say the least. He played a great mix of originals and covers, like the Radiohead song I can’t quite remember the name of. Of his originals, “Scared” was one that caught my ears (and my heart—cheesy, I know). Its rather upbeat tempo was a nice backdrop against the song’s sullen, yet empowering, tone. The crowd favourite, however, had to be “Weed Song.” The track’s reggae influence, paired with the fact that it was (on the surface) basically a love song for cannabis, made for an entertaining three minutes—plus, it had a pretty great message.
