Brendan Kelly Talks Soundwave Festival

Posted by: Jason Tate (03/12/13)
Brendan Kelly (The Lawerence Arms) has updated his blog after the band played Soundwave.
Speaking of, Blinkís compound guards were told to memorize the faces of the dudes in the band because they didnít want to have to wear or show passes. Thatís a cool perk of being in a 3 piece that Iíve not experimented with yet (side note, Travis wasnít there, which prompted us to consider that heís far and away the most famous of those dudes. Can you think of any other band in the history of the world where the [non singing] drummer is the most famous guy in the band? Thatís just weird).

I thought it was funny when he said Sum 41 were pissed because they didn't get their own compound, haha. But I think they'd be used to it by now... on Thursday they start opening up an arena tour for Billy Talent.

(why can't I quote the original post? has that always been the case and I just never noticed it? or did something change??)

All the Rush fans are going to be really sad he couldn't think of another band where the drummer was the most famous person...

Speaking of, Billy Talent opened for Sum 41 at a sideshow and talked up Sum 41 throughout their set and when Sum 41 came on they didn't even thank Billy Talent. Plus they were seriously outplayed, the Talent have an awesome love show.

You haven't ever been able to quote a news post directly.

I see, didn't realize Billy Talent was still opening for Sum 41 in Australia because in Canada that's definitely not the case. You must have caught a fairly intimate show though so that would have been awesome. I'm happy that they can play arenas now, but I definitely miss the smaller BT shows too.

There was only a few hundred people there and both bands played for about 75 minutes. It boggles my mind to imagine Billy Talent playing arenas.

They co-headlined the shows and took turns who would play last in alternate cities.

But sum41 would be a bigger name still in Australia. With billy talent maybe being more popular. If that makes sense


Neither could do arenas here though. Don't forgot they are local heroes in canada

I've quoted the news bit!!!!

There's a photo I've seen of the blink guys poster. With a pic of all 3 saying
"Remember these artists faces, they do not like wearing their passes"
