No one has sent us videos from the show yet! Send us your video so we can add it to the site.
This was my first Sloan show, ever. I was extremely excited to attend and was not disappointed. I attended the show with my friend Alex, who introduced me to Sloan. We missed the first couple of songs but strutted in to "Anyone Who's Anyone," which we took as a pretty huge sign that the band was aware we had arrived and was welcoming us in the best way possible.
I remember at one point during the show Chris totally called out a kid who was drinking wine and eating spaghetti on the balcony. He's like, wine and spaghetti? At a show? Are we interrupting you or something? I loved how casually the band interacted with the fans.
The energy of the crowd wasn't as great as it could have been (see the second night for details on that), but they did play "Penpals," my favorite song ever. This was a kicking show and it made me thrilled and exhilarated at the fact that I was seeing them the next night.
Hi-ho, how are you feckers! I wasn't at this show....so why the hell am i writing a review for it? cause i can use the critiqueing skills i learned in school, and ive seen other sloan shows. So, cool here iam doin' my thing....Okay, i think the new album rawks the casbah. My girlfriend thinks you guys are pretty cool too, that is to say she loves the album more than i do. She says 'it reminds me of when i was a little girl, and peter frampton would come on the radio and my friend and i would jump around air guitaring'. I mean shit guys, this girls a classy chick and i periodically catch her air guitaring around the house to your shit! yep she's ready for the call, either of yer git players get mouthy, fire'em, she's there! Okay i'll leave you guys alone now, just thought i'd say i'd love to see a show of yours but im a po-musican and can't afford your prices. rawk harder feckers, good to see someone makin' the dough! cheers big-ears from Canada.
Well, how lucky can one guy be? We came in from Chicago for a Michael Imperioli personal appearance (he's a mighty cool cat in his own right), and who should be preparing to kick our Rock'n'Roll cans that very night? Why, it was Canada's most tuneful band- (no, not the New Pornographers) Sllooo-ooan! The crowd's less-than-rabid response was not due to a lack of Sloan Rockmanship. These gentlemen smoked their set like a fine Cuban cigar, savoring their oldies whilst blowing smoke rings with their new material. Perhaps excessive pasta consumption kept a portion of the crowd grounded. All I know is, when Sloan tours in support of Action Pact, they MUST play The Metro in Chicago again. The Windy City crowd couldn't get enough of them last time. Happy New Year to all!
