My only dissapointments with the show had nothing to do with the band but everything to do with the show's organization. I was misinformed that Sloan would be on second (which makes sense because they are a way bigger band than K-os). It was a good thing I showed up early or I would have missed the band I wanted to see! It seemed like it took the guys a bit before they got really into the show which is understandable because they were playing to k-os fans (at points I thought I was the only Sloan fan there!) I'm not sure why they had you guys play together; it wasn't a very good fit. After Sloan I tried to stick around to see what this fuss was over K-os but I just couldn't do it. Not trying to offend his fans.
Anyways on to the actual show. This was my first time seeing Sloan in about 3 years and they did not dissapoint. My highlights were penpals (was very surprised/happy to hear), the lines you amend, I'm not a kid anymore, g turns to d, ill placed trust, losing california and the song played right after HFXNSCH (does anyone know what that was? It really rocked). I tried to get the old Slooooooooaaaaan chant going but it was really hard in a group of K-os fans! The only things that would have made the show amazing was if they played longer, more stuff off twice removed and something off smeared. I hope that Sloan comes back to this area sometime soon for a concert where they get to headline like they deserve to.
All in all great show guys even if the crowd wasn't feeling you, I thought it was awesome.
Great show at Brock!! It was AWESOME seeing Sloan at my school! Theysounded FANTASTIC. I especially loved hearing "G turns to D" and "Burn For It."
The thing that sucked though were all the blank faces in the crowd ( How could they not know who Sloan is? =[ ) AND the SLOOOO-OOANNNNN chant didn't happen, not even once!! I tried to start it, I really did!
I also had an issue with Brock's advertisting for this show...THERE WAS HARDLY ANY! I saw ONE poster in the school and that was it!
But anyway, great show!!!
PS. We were the ones yelling for "Witch's Wand" .. Jay heard us and SMILED (AWWW) but pointed to the set list and sort of gave us a "sorry..." look. Maybe next time. :)
