If you’d like to submit Canadian news to AbsolutePunk.net, email me at deborah.remus@absolutepunk.net or send me a PM with “Canadian Round-Up” in the subject line. I don't check the news queue often so that's probably the best way if you want to guarantee I'll see it.

These posts are so dead nowadays I'd like to attempt to breathe some more life back into them. Anyone been to any shows recently? These are the ones I can think of off the top of my head, I'm sure I'm missing tons that are going on this weekend:

-Marianas Trench began their first arena tour across Canada and I'll be checking it out tonight.

-Protest the Hero are currently touring across the country with Black Label Society.

-I think Less Than Jake are in Alberta this weekend?

Happy to hear moneen is playing shows. Wonder if there will be a new record from them in 2012

Maybe in 2013, but I don't know. I feel like they're playing those shows for nostalgia more than anything else.

I love these threads, keep doing them!! On a side note I finally got into Marianas Trench after all these years. They truly deserve all the praise they get.

Cool, which MT record won you over? Alongside Brighter Brightest, I think they're one of the best pop-rock bands making music right now.

Marianas Trench were in town the other day, but I didn't really have any desire to go, mostly to do with the people that would be there and Down With Webster. I wouldn't mind seeing them again at some point, but I doubt they will tour Canada anymore with bands that interest me.

I understand what you're saying. I have a feeling I'm going to be one of the oldest people there tonight, even though I'm only 22. I'm also not interested in Down With Webster.

But I've also never seen Marianas Trench so I just want to finally see them regardless of the situation. I hear they're going all out with stage props and theatrics and all that stuff so I'm hoping that will be cool at the very least. They've been saying in interviews they could never pull this stuff off in smaller venues, which makes sense.

I was lucky enough to see them shortly after Fix Me came out, and they played to no more than 100 people. I think the music they are releasing now is far better, but that was such a cool show.

For sure, that would have been awesome. I've liked this band since 2006, I just never got around to seeing them. Do you remember who else was playing?

No Bragging Rights were going to play Saskatchewan but couldn't get over the border in time, but they are in Calgary tonight.

Bummer, it always sucks when that happens. Even though you know it's not in the band's control.

Cauterize were pretty big there for a little bit.

I was just going to say that I recognized that name and not the others.

I wonder if Alexisonfire and Moneen will play any of the songs off of the Switcheroo?

I would hope so. I remember Kenny came on stage and helped sing "Accidents" when I saw AOF on the last real cross Canada tour in 2010.

I have never heard of BB, which song would you reccommend? I had heard "Beside You" on the music video radio station at my gym and noticed that it appeared to take place in Vancouver, BC which piqued my interest in them. I watched the video for Desperate Measures and from the opening segue I could tell they were something special. That song just screamed classic and encouraged me to buy Ever After. So glad I did. I also got MpT and it's a near perfect record for me.

Also, on a side note, was it you who had the sister who works for Bioware? After playing through ME3 it strengthed how much I appreciate this company. So much, that it would be a dream to work for them. I'm still in the market looking for a career. Do you know if they are possibly hiring? Maybe something along the lines of administrative assistant work?

Cool! If you're into MT songs like "Cross My Heart" then you'll probably be into Brighter Brightest, who's another Canadian pop-rock band:



And sorry, I'm not the person who has a sister who works for Bioware.
