What a great show!!! A nice intimate setting for almost 2 hours of non stop rock and roll. As you'll see in my pictures, a good time was had by all, and the band was more than gracious to hang out afterwards, signing autographs and posing for pictures. A few girls even took advantage of photo ops during the show. And for the whipped cream on top of the sundae, they played "Losing California", which wasn't on the set list, but was obviously on the top of the list of many of the cats in attendence, myself included. A+++
Thank You so much for playing Losing California last night!!!
Welcome back to the States!
Man, what a loud show! My ears be ringing this morning. :)
Loved the impromptu cover of Bela Lugosi's dead. Chris's Peter Murphy impersonation was uncanny.
Well, see you in Grand Rapids. And maybe Chicago too. :)
Awesome show. Thanks for coming to our little town of Bowling Green. And thanks to Andrew for moving that light. Every song sounded great but I'm not sure if I like the new drum set, I liked the old Ludwigs better.
last night's show was amazing. it was my first time getting to see sloan, and i've been a fan for many long years. i knew it would be a great show, but i was honestly blown away by how great it was. i got some really good pictures from being up front and i also ended up getting a setlist that i asked chris for.
Does anybody have a complete set list?
Sloan rocked as per usual! I was getting antsy afterwards, so I didn't get a chance to chat with the guys, but I did see Jays braces, which I think are very cute! ;)
oh, and I left out, Jay breaking 2 strings during one song?! nice!
They kissed fans, but I am dissapointed they weren't more liberal with themselves!
Does anyone have a ticket stub from the B.G. show? I've got a dozen pictures to send someone from the show if they could provide me with an extra stub. It would mean alot to me, so have a heart and e-mail me with an x-tra.....Thanks...Bob

losing california [by audience request]
feels good do it
What can I say, the show rocked.....So hard.
Very kool energy, very kool night, and Chris is a fox, no wait, he's a dren (that's the opposite of "nerd", in case you aren't "Happy Days" fans, losers).
And if you wanna groove on some serious rock, then you will dig the Action Pact material live--my ass still hurts from having it kicked so hard.
Sloan--thanks for the mind blow, and for so many years of listening pleasure...
Eep op ork.
And for those of you who are not sure if you can make it to a gig, then ask yourselves this:
"What would Reuben Kincaid do?"
And you know what the answer is?
He'd support the band.
...now get out there and buy those tickets!
Love & thanks,Sloan--

They're playing every track off the new CD live? For a band that's 7 albums into their career, with a terrific back-catalog of music, that seems a little excessive to me. Especially considering "Action Pact" hasn't even been released in the U.S. Don't get me wrong, I like the new CD, but c'mon....I'm still excited to see them (goin' to the Philly show on Mother's Day), but I hope they change the set a bit...
Thank you Sloan for a great show at a great bar. "Action Pact" sounds even better live than on the CD.
Sloan was good
I wish Starball opened up for them
no kidding! Sloan and Starball?!?!?!?! I would crap my pants up and down the street! I would kill someone to hear beefcake live one more time!
The opening act did do very well for a last minute replacement. The music was good, but I was most impressed by the big voice coming from the little lead singer.
I shouldn't need to say "awesome show." That base has been covered already. Although, the crowd energy was way better in Detroit last night. Anyways.... what was up with the promo fliers in BG saying that Sam Roberts was opening? *I* would have crapped my pants then (not to mention my sister would have been forever jealous).
I have to say that this show was pretty under-promoted, so there weren't as many fans there as there could have been. Having said that, WOW, great show. The energy that Chris and guys had on stage was awesome considering the relatively low turn out. I would agree that they did play basically the WHOLE new album, which was fine by me as I have been rocking to it for a long time, but other fans may have wanted to hear some more older stuff.
One last note, I found it pretty disappointing that Sloan opened for The Strokes a while back, but I am disgusted to hear that they are opening for Jet, that lame-ass "retro rock" band. Sloan isn't part of that trendy retro rock fad, that have been bringing it for real for a decade or so now.
yeah I was looking forward to Sam Roberts...but what was the name of the opening band? I don't remember what it was.
Jet are Sloan-fans. What's the dilly-o? Granted Sloan has waaay more cred, Jet will open some doors for Sloan in the U.S. and Australia. I've never seen Sloan as a mainstream band. If they get played every 15 minutes on every radio station, more power to 'em. I always thought of Sloan as a hybrid of obscurity and tremendous talent. Eventually it'll balance. Just gonna take time for people to find out about them. They're motivators. If they get overplayed like a classic rock band, it wouldn't surprise me. C'mon, it's SLOAN for crying out loud. If they did a tour with Kiss they'd prolly reach the rabid audience they deserve. Wait...They already got that.
The show was great. I saw you in Detroit at St. Andrews Hall a couple weeks later. With Terri and Regina. We got there around 9 and Andrew was singing. Show was 1/2way through! The door guy said the box office was closed. I produced a shiny penny and asked him if he knew my friend, Abraham Lincoln. He didn't laugh and Terri told him she knew so and so who runs the place and he let us in.
Once we got to the front, you guys stopped the show to lob water bottles to a passed out fan. The girl had heat exhaustion and was tended to by Terri the nurse. Once again she saves the night! The girl regained her conciousness and the show went on. Reminded me of Beatlemania. Was weird. Is cool to see my favorite band get props. One sees Outkast videos and then sees it in reality. I wonder how you stay humble. Keep motivatin'.
Please listen to the Vandolah Cd.
