Hey, Can't Wait For The Show Tonight....Sloan Rocks!
This concert was more amazing than I could have ever imagined! Every song they played had so much energy! They really do keep to their roots and care about their fans. Thank you for putting on the best concert STFX has ever seen! You guys are amazing!
HEY!! Wow. Joel Plaskett and Sloan ripped up the stage. A long set with a variety from all of their albums was a much loved medley! Encore, as always, was a treat and well played! Talking to Jay after the show made me feel very appreciated! Wish I could be at some of your western tour dates, but alas, school binds me. Rock out with Cuff and keep us easterners in mind! Well, I'm really a Torontonian, but thats o.k.
i've been waiting to see these guys in concert for along time but being from newfoundland i didn't get much of a chance... so last night was absolutley fabulous, these guys really know how to rock the house! they're my favorite band and last night just gave me one more reason to love and respect these guys so much more....thanks for a great show.

So the setlist was awesome with the exception of there being no songs from Smeared and only one from Twice Removed. The only bad part of the whole thing was the crowd didn't seem to know there Sloan very well. I seemed to be the only one seeing along for the older songs.Oh well.
Joel Plaskett was good too but seemed very small compared to Sloan. I sent in some pictures of both Sloan and Joel Plaskett. ENJOY!
That was the best show I've ever seen. Both Sloan and Joel tore down the place. I got to meet Patrick and Chris after the show! They signed some vinyl and chatted it up for a while. Patrick took my demo cd and that was VERY cool. Awesome show.
was in attendance in Antigonish for their concert. The concert was
pretty well attended, I'm guessing probably 1500 paying people
showed up. Although it had been advertised that the bowl would
be "wet" and the seats around the bowl "dry", it turned out being
that the "wet" area was part of the bowl, located pretty much to the
back. All ages were allowed to walk straight up to the stage
(curtailed by safety rails, of course), and boy did people ever want
to get close during the Sloan set.
The Joel Plaskett Emergency came on first, and put on a consistent
show. Maybe it was waiting for Sloan that caused it, but I can't say
that I felt excitement from their set (although I did take the
occasion to talk to the ex-Thrush Hermit bassist who was playing
bass for Joel's gig as well... ).
Highlights of Joel's set were "True Patriot Love" ("Canada's
National Anthem," as he introduced it), and a few odd turns that
landed in such territory as the Grateful Dead's "Casey Jones",
perhaps a bit of CCR (memory's hazy), and something that came
suspiciously close to U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking
Sloan took to the stage at about 11:45 PM, after signs were posted
saying "NO CROWD SURFING". This seemed to inspire certain fans to do
exactly the opposite. The people running the two mega-screens (one
on each side of the stage, I presume these are permanent
installations as St. FX employees/students were running these) lost
on the opportunity to flash a big Canadian flag when the words "I
know that I'll be living it in Canada" came in "The Rest of My Life".
Setlist was something like:
The Rest of My Life
Nothing Lasts Forever Anymore
Everything You've Done Wrong
The Marquee and the Moon
The Other Man
On the Horizon
(perhaps People of the Sky, I know, or am pretty sure, there was one
Sensory Deprivation (maybe that _was_ it, I know they played that
The Good in Everyone
Money City Maniacs
Reach Out (initial closer)
Chester the Molester (!)
(Andrew came out for one more somewhere)
If It Feels Good, Do It
Luck seemed to be on my side _quite_ often that night. Jay came out
to sign autographs and be nice to people. I spoke with tour manager
Mike several times, and even bought twelve 10-packs of the BRAND NEW
Sloan trading cards (with pics we've seen on the website, amongst
others... 1000 or so packages of 10 were pressed at the beginning of
the tour, they have no plans as to what to do with them
afterwards... Collect all 45, in the same shiny silver foil as were
those of "Between the Bridges" (albeit no clear sticker
announcing "SLOAN" on them).
What was more, when myself and my friend Jessica finally exited the
Millenium Center (after tracking down the friend who had both her
car and her cell phone), we walked right past the green tour bus...
to see people were huddled outside. Walking up, I was pleased to see
Chris talking it up with many a person. The
general situation permitted myself and Jessica to enter a quite
lengthily sustained conversation with Chris, who seemed attracted to
the fact that the two of us are both of French descendance (from
Two key elements of that conversation remain: the several levels of
the "scarecrow" reference in "I Am the Cancer" (5 and counting), and
the possible explanation as to why there were no Sloan trading cards
to be found inside last week's edition of the Coast (as the cover
was a spoof of a box of Kellogg's Bran Flakes ("Plan Flakes"), the
mention of the Sloan trading cards inside could have been a spoof of
the cereal industry's practice of promoting free stuff included
inside cereal boxes).
We basically ended the conversation about 20 minutes later (although
other people were also contributing to the general discussion, even
people in the sound&video program somewhere nearby), with Chris
saluting us with "Ceci est pour tout le monde ici, car ceci est pour
ceux qui savent c'est quoi, le rock'n'roll." (Perfect French, he
spoke! The intro to "If It Feels Good, Do It", translated.)
What a F*cking great concert....First time I saw the band Live, and they lived up to everything i thought they would be. Best moment was the encore, and they Played CHESTER the MOLESTER...best song ever...Great great great TIME!
ok...SLOAN RAWKS!!! OMG they were AMAZING!!!! The show was awesome and there was so much energy in their set! Joel Plaskett was kick ass as welll....he was hawt!!! Not as hot as the boys in Sloan but still wicked. It was my first rock concert (im 15) and im proud to say that it was a sloan concert!!!! I got to meet Jay and i have to say that he was VERY nice and I really respect him for that. I would like to have met the other guys in the band (especially Chris....*giggle* lol) but whatev there will always be the next show (and there DEFIENETELY will be a next show)!!!! SLOAN ROCKS!!!!!!

What a experience! I mean, it was all different for me. The lights blaring, the screaming, the great view, the awesome music, singing, the entire surrounding was cool.
I wanted to just faint, which I did *laughs. But, besides that I enjoyed it all, and I'm glad the end of the night ended just right for me with hugs and kiss from Jay. Thanks Jay! you really are something else hun! Sorry I scared Chris though, but the hug was what came in my mind to do.
Sloan rocks ^ to heaven!!

I loved the concert. There was nothing that i didn't like about it. SLOAN ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sloan is awesome!!! I've always been a big fan and was glad to have them here for me to enjoy my first life show. (I'm 15). I was just a little disappointed that my friends were sitting down most of the time when I wanted to be on the floor, they don't know Sloan as much. It did feel like there were a couple people were there just to be there and I left to soon to meet any of the band. Hopefully some other time. Overall it was an AMAZING concert!
Sloan is awesome hard rockers that night of September 22. I'm glad to spot Andrew scott in a certan cafe looking so excitng to have lunch with him and also to have supper with Jay Furgison and to see them all at there sound check as well. After the concert Jay came out side and gave a big hug and I got in car and went home. Here are some of my faveorite Sloan songs
