Stoked that Chart is back. And that Tegan and Sara DVD trailer looks promising.

And he's not Canadian, but Frank Turner will be heading across Canada starting this week! I know I'll be there:

I wanna go to the Burlington Silverstein show but it's like nearly $80 and the only other one I could go to would be probably the London one, but again, not sure if I can forsure. It's weird cause a few days before they announced these Ontario shows, I was just thinking if they'd do some before the end of the year.

$80? Who else are they playing with? I can't see Silverstein tickets being more than $30 if it was their own headlining show.

Well, theres a few other bands playing the show too (Some Burlington locals) but I think it's some type of event which is why it's that much. Plus, I think it's seating.

I see, I'd probably just wait. Silverstein haven't done a full Canadian tour for Rescue yet so I'm sure they'll be back in 2012.

No idea what their status is at the moment, but I think they're still around. The other guys have been doing numerous other things, I think Kenny's doing some tech stuff on the road for The Sheepdogs right now. He's also been producing some records for some bands in southern Ontario. I think they're just taking a break from Moneen for a little bit, but I could be wrong.

That was friggin' awesome!! I knew the song sounded familiar at the start, haha. I like that guy...

Glad to hear someone else appreciated that video aside from me, haha. It's cool to see someone outside of Canada really excited to tour here. We get overlooked a ton when it comes to that sort of stuff.
