Almost the same lineup. Also, has anyone ever pointed out that the lead singer of Passion Pit and the lead singer of BTBAM could be brothers?

Part of me hopes Blink will announce more Canadian shows, but I don't want to be too greedy because they already gave me that near perfect Against Me!/Rancid line-up back in 2011.

But Passion Pit will continue on east for sure, playing Saskatoon on September 3 at the Odeon and Winnipeg at the Garrick on September 4.

Stoked for the Edmonton date. Can't go to both shows though because the line ups are alternating :(

Exactly! I mean there's a chance that I might fly out for Riot Fest, but still it would be cool if there was a Winnipeg show in the middle... even though we don't really have a festival for them to headline. They always get the best bands to open and the shows are always lots of fun.

They could do a one-off, but it'd be nice to see who's opening for them. Brand New would be insane.

I'd say that Weakerthans being on the bill is the bigger deal! I mean, fucking Weakerthans. Blink/Rancid/ AM! Was pretty fun though, I will admit.

Pasion Pit, Yukon Blonde, and Weakerthans. You lucky Canadian bastards. Hopefully Weakerthans release a new album soon, it's been way too long.

Yeah, but I also live in their hometown so I get to see them on a somewhat regular basis if I want, haha. If I lived elsewhere I'd probably be more excited.

Brand New would be cool! I'd personally like to see a band like Alkaline Trio, just because I love them and still haven't seen them play yet.

Gonna need free tickets to this, 120$ is a little steep considering Blink is the only band I want to see. I guess The Weakerthans and City and Color would be watchable. Our festivals in Western Canada are a joke compared to the Riot Fests, Warped tours, Skate and Surfs ect. Nothing but Hipster alt radio bands with the odd nugget like Blink mixed in
