Emily Haines and James Shaw trekked to the Columbia River to perform an acoustic version of "Synthetica." The synthless "Synthetica" lends true meaning to the song. Haines lyrics, "I've got something no pill could ever kill/No drug is stronger than me", rung true in front of the setting sun. The sole guitar and Haines voice, strong with little accompaniment, could rival most folk artists of today. Albeit a bit twangy, this rendition is equal to (if not better than) the original recording.
