• Kirkland Lake-January 20

    Well I've just returned from another Blue Rodeo concert. I'm not sure if this is number five or six for me. Kind of neat that I waited six years to see them for the first time and have now lost count of the number of times I've seen them.

    The last time I saw them was in Kapuskasing back in July. It was a hot, poorly ventilated arena where alcohol flowed freely and clothes were optional. The total opposite of tonight's show.

    Tonight's show in Kirkland Lake took place in a small 500 seat auditorium. According to the page promoting it this is the smallest venue of the tour. I was worried that I wasn't going to get a good seat as it was general admission and there was a huge line when I arrived. Then I entered the auditorium and saw that there wasn't a bad seat in the place. I managed to get a fifth row seat. This was by far the smallest venue I've ever been to for a concert. It was like the shows they used to put on in high school-except with better acoustics and a better sound system.
  • The Sadies to release double-disc live album!!!!!!

    "The Sadies: Volume 1" out August 8, 2006 on Yep Roc Records Guests include Neko Case, Garth Hudson, Gary Louris, Jon Langford, Blue Rodeo, Kelly Hogan, The Good Brothers and more .

    Toronto's cosmic cowboys The Sadies, led by the lanky frontmen Dallas and Travis Good, along with drummer Mike Belitsky and upright bassist Sean Dean, have been quietly building a reputation since their debut release in 1998. The band manages to juggle a heavy tour schedule, side projects and their own studio recordings with equal aplomb, releasing critically acclaimed albums and making believers out of everyone who's witnessed their mind-blowing live shows.

    But for Sadies' fans, there's been nothing that captures the feel of the band's live shows, which can run to 40 songs and encompass everything from psychedelic country rock, surf, bluegrass and Ennio Morricone-esque inspired instrumentals.
    That is, until now.
