It was an awsome one
It was an awsome one
what was the tune called that Andrew sang with that cool riff?
I was excited to see the preformance and it was a great show. Come back to Michigan soon!!! Grand Rapids would love to see you!
sloooooooooooooooooooooooooo-aaaaaaaaaan, first time seeing them live, definetely not the last, i've become a full time sloan fan ever since EDGEfest.
Sloan, you rock!!!
as my favourite band, I can finally say i've seen you guys. you were totally awesome. being way up front for you guys, i might have been squished, but you can bet I was singin, I just turned my head and could also see my friend steve, also a crazy sloan fan, singin away. my girlfriend might have been there for OLP, but i was there for one band only.
I am one of those older fans who have seen many Sloan shows beginning with the Repeat the Beat show[3/93], through the most excellent show cut short when crowd dancers swamped the stage and someone stepped on a plug[Capitol/Windsor], through the Duet with Jennifer-JALE on the real
Pheonix stage, through countless visits back here
that I have forgotten. I have missed too many, including a legendary show at the 7th house that
was a tough ticket, and I stood outside in the cold.
I can't believe that folks are tweaked about the comments made on stage. I think that the band was expressing their frustration with not being able
to reach us, here in Detroit-especially-since we have such a great fan base. Some people just don't understand irony/satire: it's funny if you look at it
exactly the opposite. But, don't give up on Sloan. I happened to look like a fool to a yuppie couple my age standing behind me whom had never seen Sloan before. My assessment was that Sloan was the best band since the Beatles[Don't hate me Canadian Fans, I follow The Hip, too]. And when Sloan came on it was a bit loud and the instruments
were uncoordinated. My new friends looked at me
funny and left. Well, they missed out. Because, out
of the grungy rock [As If] we North of the Border
Americans were shocked with: I Was Wrong.....
I woke up with that tune ressonating in my brain the following morning. Whatever you think, Sloan is not a Football team[or a hockey team]. They are just playing music. If you are looking for Sloan
to repeat that "Best Show Ever" that you saw in a
myriad of other places, you miss out on what they are doing today. Sloan? If you guys read these things: Great job on the new album, it's fresh. My friends in Boston and Chicago are big fans, so don't give up. Rothrock: Needs more cowbell, baby.
PLAY MORE SHOWS DOWN HERE!!!!!!!

super duper fun, buddies... and it was only 2 bucks.. definitely worth the road trip from TO. :)
Hey guys, great set at Edgefest. I know you weren't all that keen on playing at first, but I'm glad you did. I missed ya in the autograph session cuz I was in the beer tent *grin*, but I figured since I hung with you in Bala, that it was ok.. but I was there in all Sloan-ish glory. It was amazing how many different kinds of fans that set reached.
I really do wish you much success with this new release - I am still waiting for my Japanese copy!
Hope to see you again soon .. try and play in London this time!!! Let me know if you need to be shown around..
Rock on ..
Wicked set by sloan! Kinda sucked eating all that dust in the mosh pit, but other than that the whole show was an amazing blowout! Does anyone know where you can see some video footage, cause that would be the shizznee!
Sloan show number seven for me. I'll start with the bad (sorry guys): I'm pretty sure this was the first time I've ever seen Sloan play three songs in a row from the same album, let alone open a show that way. They usually do a better job of mixing it up. And as I've said before, please please please play more from Peppermint, Smeared, and Twice Removed! Where's "Pretty Voice," "Take it In," or "I Hate My Generation"??? Also, I got kicked in the head by a crown surfer and my girlfriend had a toe nail ripped out when a mosh pit suddenly broke out during "Rest of my Life" (who moshes to that one?). Luckily she was willing to wait until after the set before we went to the first aid tent (what's a pint of blood anyway?).
Now for the good: even though it wasn't as mixed as it has been, it was still a good set. Sensory Deprivation is great on the album, but friggin' awesome live!!! Could Chris get a little more crazy on the drums?!? Sloan's poppier songs are rocked up live, and their rockier songs are extra rocky live, or something like that.
The autograph session was also cool. Thanks for signing and posing for pictures! As many have said before, Sloan is very down to earth. I'm glad you got a laugh out of those 1990 pictures from Chart (to quote Chris: "How did that get kept?" and Jay: "Isn't that aweful?").
Looking forward to show number eight. Hopefully it's just you and not at a festival so you have a longer set.
It's been over a year since I attended this show, but I must say it was one of the most memorable Sloan shows I've seen, and I've seen at least a dozen. They opened with "If It Feels Good Do It" and the drunken crowd went nuts. Apparently somebody threw something at Andrew and he left the stage at one point. The crowd was too rough but other than that it was amazing to see the bar band version of Sloan put on a show. Even "The Other Man" became a sing-along rocker. Good work.
It's great to see Sloan's new album making such a positive impact. The show was fantastic, if short, but the lads definitely kicked out the jams.
I would personally like to thank Jay for taking a look at a CD we gave him, from a band called "The Flying Public". As a good friend of this band, it's great to see that established musicians still take the time to help the little guy out. Thanks guys.
Hopefully there's some tour dates for Southern Ontario on the new tour because we'd like to see a longer set.
Hope to see you guys in town soon, and thanks again!
The boys kicked some serious butt at Edgefest. Keep up the good work
The show was awesome! Every band, especially Sloan, played their best, I thought! Definitely one of the best concerts! Thank you so much for being there.
The guys from sloan stole the show in my opinion. Great show guys. I am from barrie and thanks for playing at the last show for molson park!
best show ever! sloan was amazing! they better be back in toronto again soon!
Just wanted to thank Patrick, Andrew, Chris and Jay for rockin out at Edgefest 2003 on Saturday. Truely I came to see Sloan and The Hip since I haven't seen the Hip play in quite a long time. Sloan's energetic and fun set was certainly deserving of being on just prior to the Hip because quite honestly, the sets by Stereophonics, OLP and Finger 11 (my god what freak scheduled Finger 11 to play later in the show than Sloan???) were mediocre at best. I loved the CFNY interview with Chris and Jay prior to the show, guess who stole the airtime? My only wish was that there was to be at least a track or two from Twice Removed and Smeared, but nevermind, the new album rocks and we heard plenty of the singles as well. Thanks for the autograph session and thanks for an amazing set in an otherwise subpar Edgefest show.
