Its almost 10 years since the first time I saw Sloan live.
The weather was brutal, and the audience was on the slender side, but the guys put on a great show. I'm sure someone who got a copy of the set will post it, I wont even try to remember.
Some key points were:
-Chris played the Gene Simmons bass
-Jay played a new 16-bar blues song of his.
-I think I saw Andrew mouthing along words to songs, and he wasnt even singing back up. Whoa.
-Patrick, has his Pat-rock hair back from the BTB period.
-played "Before I Do" and 4 songs from Action Pact!
-I played tambourine with them on stage during Underwhelmed. Do they have "Underwhelmed Guys" now!? Chris lemme do the kick to end the song. Good times.
I could be wrong, but I think I saw a "Mike Nelson or bust" tattoo. Dont know.
Just wanted to say again how great it was to see you guys. I watched you play back in the mid 90's in Windsor, Ont. where you played with several bands including Juliana Hatfield. There was some fear of you guys calling it quits at the time and that would have been a real shame. The day you guys do hang it up (and hopefully that is a long ways off), the industry is going to lose something really special.
And once again, thanks so much for playing "Coax Me". Without a doubt my favorite tune (with "I Can Feel It" not far behind), and an awesome birthday present I won't soon forget.
Keep challenging yourselves to make the sounds you do, and I hope to see you guys again soon.
