City and Colour's Canadian tour kicked off this week. Did anyone go? I'll probably be going, since I still haven't seen Dallas solo yet.

Otherwise, no surprise about Sum 41. And I'm obviously excited about Treble Charger!

lmao @ Sum 41,band seriously needs to get there shit together.

Hoping illScarlett's new album is nothing like 1UP! and more like EPdemic and All Day With It, but judging from the teasers I've heard its got 1UP! elements for sure. Hope its good.

And Treble Charger hell yeah!

Still stoked for Silverstein's Short Songs.

I haven't seen Dallas solo yet, either, but I heard he's pretty boring live, but very good musically, which I guess is more important.

I've seen AoF 2x, loved both, so I can imagine solo he's good, too. Very introverted guy. He lets George and Wade take care of the fans and he retreats to the bus...

But it's the fact that the Low Anthem are opening that gets me going. TLA are better than City, really

Cool, if I go I'll defintely get there early and check out the Low Anthem. I can imagine he'll be good, but probably on the less talkative side as you and the other person in this thread have mentioned. And that alone would set it apart from other singer songwriters I've seen perform, like Dave Hause for example.

Although my experience with Dallas wasn't as cold as a lot of the ones I've heard so I guess I should feel lucky, haha. I haven't even really officially met him, I was just hanging around the venue during the last AOF tour and he said hi and had a big smile for me. George was with him and he was the one who walked by that time, not I can blame him. I don't usually say hi to people I don't know either.
