Easily the best show I've ever been too. The lighting kicked ass. Hopefully I'll get to go to Keith's Bash. Keep Rocking!!!!
amazing energy, great mixture of songs and Chris is an awesome host.
thanks again for a rockin' night,
Three of us drove in from Moncton to see the show. On the highway, I realized I forgot my ticket and had to drive back and get it. Small inconvenience.
Had a nice meal at a resto across the street from the venue before the show. I forget the name of the place, and maybe for the best, as it wasn't a great meal. For a place that prides itself on its bread, both the pre-meal bread and the foccacia were undercooked. The salmon inside the sandwich was dry. Anyhoo, the waitress was nice and I managed to throw back a few drinks.
Outside, the Xbox tent provided a nice diversion allowing me to take a nice puff near the beautiful Mt. A. pond. Thanks Microsoft.
The show was pretty solid. It was great to see so much egalitarianism within the band. It's rare to see all members of a band taking turns singing, and it working, for the most part. Andrew on drums was fun to watch. Controlled frenzy. I would have liked to see some more from "Smeared" and "Twice Removed" of course, but they did do "Coax Me" which was the highlight of the show for me. "The Other Man" was great as well, and it was fun to see the kids rocking out to all of the other anthemic Sloan mega-hits that seem to have become part of the collective Canadian identity.
Chris, I hope that you sold a lot of your cards. It seemed to be a concern. And thanks to your repeated "don't push and don't surf" instructions, nobody seemed to get hurt.
I'm glad I got to see a proper Sloan show. (I did see them do a few tunes for free at HMV in Halifax once.) I've been a fan since the beginning, when Chris' dad was a prof of mine at Dal U and told me to take a listen to his son's tunes just before Mr. Geffin attemted to swallow them up whole. I'm glad they escaped with their lives and went on to make some pretty good music over the past ten or more years.
Wow! I'd not seen Sloan til last night. I paid 80 bucks for two tickets from some dude at school the other day, then drove from Moncton to Sackville two hours early. I was NOT disappointed! From when I saw Jay Ferguson walk by, to when Chris Murphy came out and sang 'Deeper Than Beauty' acoustic, then from when Joel Plaskett Emergency hit the stage, til the last notes of 'If It Feels Good Do It' finished rining in my ears, it was the experience of a lifetime. It was an amazing experience to be able to see a band who had such a profound influence on my life. Were I to make a soundtrack to my life, Sloan would be very well represented. A great show all in all. Great crowd control by the security, and by the band. Thanks guys! I love you all! SLOOOOOOOOW-OWN!
Yo! Saw Sloan last night at Mount Allison University. They rocked the house! Played brilliant new songs from the new album and played the classics like Coax Me and Money City Maniacs. It was unreal! They even spent a solid hour with the fans after the show signing autographs and talking up a storm! Great guys! See you at Keith's Fest!
Wow!Idid not even get to go to the show but what i heard was awesome!they are really nice to(i got to meet them.Lucky me!)
Does anyone have a set-list or pictures from the show??
Awesome show! Thanks to Chris for announcing our (Minus John) gig the next night! Can't wait to see them again... hey Marty!
Such a hard rawking show, enjoyed every second, had a pretty decent mix of the new and the old (though, more old would have been totally awesome sweet).
Highlight of the night would have been the encore with Chester the Molester. That was a VERY pleasant surprise, I must say.
Looking forward to another show in the near future (???!!). You're welcome back anytime, men. Haha
