Watch Polaris Prize Performances From Carly Rae Jepsen, Andy Shauf, Black Mountain, & More
The Polaris Music Prize held its Gala last night in Toronto, handing out its annual award for the year’s best Canadian album to Kaytranada’s 99.9%. A lot of the other nominees were present to perform, and the CBC recruited various celebrities to record endorsement videos for their favorite nominated album. So, without further ado, here are a bunch of cool performances (by Carly Rae Jepsen, White Lung, Black Mountain, Jessy Lanza, US Girls, Andy Shauf, and Basia Bulat) and endorsement videos (from Dev Hynes, Jeff Tweedy, Amber Tamblyn, Iggy Pop, Jay Worthy, Mary Dickie, Boyd Devereaux, Ian Steaman, Becky Katz, and Stranger Things kid Finn Wolfhard, who apparently was in a PUP video).
Seems like a pretty cool ceremony, but it could have used more Grimes, no?
