Another fine performance, I only wish it were an "underaged" show, this way I could bring my kids, 16, 13, and 12, who listen to your songs everyday. It appears you have fans of all ages. Can't wait to see you again.
Next time your in Thunder Bay I would love to bring my kids for your sound check. And If any of you guys ride motorcycles, I would lend my cruiser (shes a beauty), so you could check out the city on 2 wheels.
Hey all! I really enjoyed the show you played in Thunder Bay this past week at C2. I think a got shivers a record setting six or seven times while you guys were playing. Since the evening was so intimate I was able to enjoy the music in closer proximity to the stage then any of the other 11 times I have seen the band live. I could actually here the non-house-amplified version of the guitars coming out the amps for the first time (excellent tone)- and the pure jingle jangle of all the sweet tambourine and shaker. The show highlight for me was “Fading Into Obscruity,” off my favorite Sloan record of all time NEVER HEAR THE END OF IT. The show low for me was getting a little too drunk and then was making the decision to have an out-of-my-mind chat with Chris after the show. I never had the chance to hang with you guys before and I acted like a total idiot- for instance: Chris had the best Rock and Roll kicks I have ever seen te night I saw Rooney open for you and the Strokes at the Orpheum in Vancouver.
And to top it all off: in a drunken moment of foolishness I failed to explain my rating system for Never Hear the End of It with Chris and made it sound like I was passing judgment on some of the songs off that record. What I was actually trying to explain was that my play list was what I considered to be the best of the best of Never Hear The End Of It. Because the truth of the matter is that there is not a bad song on NEVER HEAR THE END OF IT- it is just that there are just so many brilliant tracks that some song cast shadows over others as a result of there shear genius i.e. “I Know You,” “Last Time In Love,” “I Understand,” and “Who Taught You To Live Like That.” When I listen to the CD at home or in my car I don’t skip a single song.
Rock on- Best of luck for the rest of the tour. I also Love the Shit out of the new record. I simply can’t get over how groovy the bridge for “I’m Not A Kid Anymore” is- was that part of the song added in post?
