I was once again employed by the Polaris Music Prize this year leading up to and during 2015 Polaris Gala which was won by Buffy Sainte-Marie for her album Power In The Blood.

Buffy’s as deserving as anyone, but the real ace moments on the night were, for me, in order:

3. Host Fred Penner attempting a song medley highlighting all nine previous Polaris winners, including Tagaq and Godspeed You Black Emperor.

2. Alvvays performing a shimmering “Archie, Marry Me.”

1. Jennifer Castle’s epic rendition of “Sparta” backed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Read a recap of the evening here.
