    Sorry guys patience will have to be of the essence here. What ive found is a large collection of video material throughout Matt's career. a portion of it is stuff none of us here have ever seen before. The material is being collected from a few sources and being sent to me. As I do not have any of it yet it is naturally impossible to give a time frame. All I can do is wait until I receive it all then I can do my part aling with another member here to get it out to you. What I have right now are samples sent to me to verify the material in the collection. This includes the entire video of Sharks. i have not been given permission to share yet so im not going to jeopardize getting several hours worth of footage by jumping the gun on a couple minutes worth of samples. Hang tight the material is coming but an ETA is out of my control at the moment

    Hey everyone, I hope you’re all well. I took a break from interacting on here but wanted to jump back on to go over the acoustic tour next year. First, the dates that have been randomly coming out are because certain community theatres have to announce their schedules ahead of time for the courtesy of their patrons. That would be why theatres in smaller towns have announced shows, because I’m on their performance schedule for the year. That said, this month the entire tour is being rolled out and will include shows in major centres. The tour is actually pretty extensive and I’ll be playing some smaller places that I’d otherwise not. Given it’s an acoustic tour, and I’ve not done one in Canada since Hospital Music, I’m really looking forward to it. The downside is that I might have to endure reading the entirety of “The Art Of The Deal” to find the best passages to read during shows (hehe). Anyway, I know I’d mentioned an idea of doing very small shows at higher ticket prices, in excess of $100, but we decided it would be better to do things normally. I’ll check back and try and answer some questions if I can. Best. Matt.

    Also he is apparently working on Change of Season to add in as the tour goes on, which if he does play it will be the first time in over twenty years I believe, so pretty cool to see some of the ideas hes kicking around for this tour. Should also mention that I bought a ticket for my friend to attend the final stop on the tour in Vancouver and like he did on the BM tour he will record and film the entire concert.

    As sad as I am about this, I was also upset when I went back to re-read my interactions with her on here - and discovered that all of her posts were gone. This is the last time I'll make a big deal about this, but people, including any admins, should not have the power to wipe out entire post histories, with the exception of troll and spam accounts. And this is precisely why - they're the record of our interactions - they're our memories. We already lose so much that we know and remember about people when they're no longer with us. (PS: I'm assuming the deletions must have happened some time ago.)

    She was a fixture at every Matt Good concert I'd ever attended in Vancouver. She had one of those larger than life personalities that you couldn't help, but notice her there. Often Matt would single her out in the crowd and sometimes have a brief chat. She was obviously a huge life long fan. Recently she had moved to Victoria and it was strange on the Beautiful Midnight Revisted tour to attend those shows and not notice her at the show. Obviously she was a member of this forum as well and it's tragic to think she is gone so young. Pretty cool for Matt to offer a tribute for her.

    Grabbed a photo of the pedal board from tonight's VIP show. I also asked Matt a question about how to market my band and after the photo op was done he asked me to send him a copy of it. I had a cd of it in my car so I went out and grabbed that for him. Now Matt owns the first copy of our EP outside of my band and our family!!

    I just got back from the Sidney show. I'm not going to go on in a lot of detail, I'm not really sure what to say. Amazing. I've been waiting over 10 years to see Matt play acoustically and it was even better than I expected. I've seen him with the band 7 times before this, not to take anything away from the band, but this is definitely my favourite show I've seen. There was tons of between-song banter (between all the songs), lots of hilarious moments. Matt's show was about 2 hours 10 minutes. It felt like a very personal performance, the venue only has 8 rows of seats. Amazing, I don't know what else to say. I'll take my best stab at the setlist. The beginning and the encore will be correct, the rest will be completely out of order, and there may be some I forget: Fearless Sort of a Protest Song Prime Time Deliverance Born Losers *Unknown New Song* While We Were Hunting Rabbits Tripoli Fated The Fine Art of Falling Apart Alert Status Red Load Me Up Los Alamos Apparitions Strange Days Men At The Door 99% of Us is Failure I don't think I forgot any, but I may have, I quickly scrolled through the album tracklists to try to remember all that was played. Like I said, order is way wrong in the middle. The new song was awesome, not sure if it was ever posted as a demo. The most memorable lyrics were "Once you break it you've bought it, and once you've bought it, it's breakable" (hope I got that right). Oh, some other interesting information we got about the next album: - The working title of the album is currently "Moving Walls", it sounded like that's what Matt wants to call it - There are 16 songs, only 1 has electric guitar - It will be recorded in studio after this tour I still have the Campbell River and Victoria shows to go.

    I had a message board for a while too (before my hosting messed up and lost the database a few too many times), as did Prime Time Deliverance. PTD had a lot of us who didn't feel like we fit in with groups on Running For Home's board. After PTD wasn't around, I had my board, The Double Life, for a while. MGB during the AOB days linked to Running For Home's board (the APA [Amusement Park Accident]). Nation Of Cool had an official board, was that the Metro?. the official MG.org site had an official board on and off too. There's been so many it's hard to keep track. I'm sure Whorrible and other pre-Running For Home sites had some too. but man was that forever ago to remember considering my site itself is 18 years old

    Some of mine are never going to happen and songs that weren’t released or pre-mgb but what the hell, we can dream right? Dusk Tidal wave Champions of nothing Rabbits Suburbia Truffle pigs Advertising Tripoli House of smoke and mirrors Girl in the war (cover) Flight recorder Prime time deliverance Near fantastica Set me on fire Los alamos Harridan Running for home Empty road Rat who would be king Joe’s in trouble And if Matt is ever taking suggestions for covers I would like to submit Mike Scott’s “A Wild Holy Band” it’s ten minutes of amazing and I think it would be wonderful.

    You are a class act. Thank you so much for the offer! Unfortunately I must decline on account of me needing 3 tickets, and I managed to score some in the live nation pre-sale just now. I should say rather... the American Express pre-sale. I tried the code "mattgood" and it didn't work, so I tried "acoustic" again, and got in. There were plenty of new tickets, so I just assumed that was the live nation pre-sale doing it's thing. Got some fine seats in the 6th row, made it all the way to the payment and was greeted with a message "You're not using an american express card". I had to make a rather embarrassing phone call to the only person I know with an amex card (my dad), and ask kindly for the number, but also urgently because there is literally a giant clock at the top of the screen ticking down 2 minutes. Moral of the story: be good to your dad, because one day he'll buy your adult-ass and your adult-ass friends some concert tickets.

    I saw their Edmonton show last night (final stop on the North American tour). I've never seen the Pumpkins live before and a 30+ song set that lasted for over 3 hours is quite the introduction! I may not have appreciated some of the songs played but it was a fun show and I definitely got my monies worth. I recorded the show and if anyone is interested you can find the full concert on Dimeadozen and also have a song sample below.

    It's really sad. When you know someone in a context like this, through music, the internet, liking photos on instagram and chatting about songs and stuff you don't get the full picture. But you still feel connected. Marcy talked openly about her struggles and her fight too. Which deepens the personal though still distant/different connection. I wish I had something better to say than I wish I could've done something for her. I feel the loss. I hope she knows the positive impact and touch she had on people's lives and that she'll be missed.

    I ordered my copies of Loser Anthems, and Avalanche a few weeks ago. I found them on the MG site and had to wait several weeks so that I could get the white vinyl Avalanche. I had to order my copy of Audio of Being from Amazon as they were sold out on the MG site: it arrived the following day and kept me going until the other two vinyls arrived. When I (finally!) received my order of Loser Anthems and Avalanche, I opened them up to find that the Avalanche records were black vinyl. I emailed the MG site and asked them for instructions regarding how to send them back and get the white vinyl. I got a prompt response telling me to keep the black vinyl, and the sleeves in case the white vinyl copy they shipped out to me was in any way damaged (ie/ if the sleeves were bent). I clarified that I didn't have to send anything back and, much to my delight, they confirmed that I was going to be able to keep both copies! This was the highlight of my week, folks! I have spent thousands of dollars on MG merch (music, tickets, travel, etc) over the years, and am always happy to do so. This feels like a gift, however! The white vinyl arrived and it did, indeed have a tiny bend in one corner of the sleeve so I swapped out the albums and will keep the black vinyl for listening; the white vinyl will be displayed somehow. I have to say that I have been listening to Loser Anthems pretty obsessively since it arrived and it sounds AAAAH-MAZING on vinyl! I haven't even put on Avalanche yet (sacreligious, I know), so entranced have I been with Loser Anthems. I even put it on for a friend who was amazed that this music was Matt Good. I'm still catching people unawares with Matt's music: the radio plays really don't do justice to his wide ranging musical talents. I hope you're all having a great time listening to your copies! P.S. I found copies of Chaotic Neutral and Something Like A Storm in the discount bin at Sunrise Records: 25% off.

    I am absolutely loving them. Each concert set is completely different from the next. It is refreshing to hear the rarities and new songs too.

    Never fly on the day of a concert. It's been a rule I've had for 12 years and I've never broken it and have traveled to dozens of shows, and a few times its saved my ass. But I went against my better judgement on this one and booked an 830 flight from victoria to edmonton on the day of the show. Only it was PM not AM which I discovered at 725 this morning at the check in counter. After finding out there was nothing Westjet could do to get me to edmonton any earlier than 9pm tonight I tried Calgary. But even then not till nearly 4 and then I'd have to rent a car and drive to St Albert tonight to maybe just make it. So I checked with Air Canada. Nothing from Vancouver Island. But one option: a 1230 flight out of Vancouver. Only problem; since it's the day of travel cost of that one way flight is $592. Fuck it. Booked the flight and raced for the 9 am ferry. Now I'm on the boat when I get off I'll have a $60 cab fare to get to the airport and should get there in time to make my flight and with a little luck should still make it to St Albert on time albeit just about $700 poorer for my efforts. So if you see a guy passing a donation cap around at the show it'll probably be me. Haha, but I'll be damned if I was gonna miss it. And if Matt happens to play Blue Skies tonight I'll consider it money well spent! See y'all at the show!

    I asked your question at the VIP today, Daniel. He said it was a good question and it got him thinking. He said "well done." l will give details soon. I think he played Radicals, So Long Mrs. Smith, and How It Goes at the VIP.

    Hey, team. I’m going to the Airdrie show tonight. This will be my first of ten shows on this tour, so I’ll be busy over the next couple of weeks. I’m hoping for some good clean fun. We don’t need any fisticuffs in the crowd, especially at an acoustic show.

    I was a member of that board which eventually became the "Metro" on another site. It was a pretty toxic and cliquey place near the end. Lots of people on there were assholes. Though it makes sense since most of them were 17-23 years old. I remember some people purposefully trying to egg Matt on into an argument. That was kind of funny to be honest now that I look back on it.

    Yup, that was last night and it was pretty amazing. I can see some people may be put off by the "no cellphone" policy but it was really refreshing. Once inside the wait was a bit slow but it's a good trade off to not have bright screens everywhere. To me Jack White will always be White Stripes and I enjoy his solo work but my preference is always to go back to "the old days" with Jack. Even with tightened security I still recorded and have finished tracking out the show.

    If he's taking requests, and I know he's not: Empty Road Champions of Nothing Vancouver National Anthem Running from Home Fine Art of Falling Apart Suburbia Tripoli Los Alamos Prime Time Deliverance Non Populus Set Me On Fire Some of these would be cool to hear reimagined for just an acoustic. I'm happy to hear any of it though.

    I prefer these solo acoustic tours to the full band ones so this news was very welcomed by me...Oddly enough, the "hits" since going solo are all my least favorite songs of his - I am hoping this tour will have the same vibe as some previous solo acoustic tours - they were my favorite performances...I will say when he played WWWHR a tour or so ago live I wept....like a GD baby...never thought I would hear that song live...if it gets a repeat solo acoustic I would be over the moon....

    Matt mentioned deciding to do this tour instead of the kind of show he talked about before they may involve a multi night stand in a city and feature a wide cross section of his career. While he may have dropped that concept, I am hopeful that he may use this acoustic tour to play a variety of things from across his career. The full band shows over the last ten years have focused mainly on his current album and then hits from the Matthew Good Band days with a couple solo career hits thrown in. Many records havent seen anything played off of them in years, things like Last of the Ghetto Astronauts, Vancouver and Lights of Endangered Species. I'm hoping the acoustic nature of the shows will allow for varying sets like was common on his 2006-07 tour. Also, since this tour won't happen until February 2019 and that Matt has long been on a cycle of delivering an album every second year, I am wondering if we may get a preview of some new tracks on the tour. Anybody have any setlist wishlist items for this acoustic tour?

    I got some better tickets for Victoria this morning in the public sale (front row). I also managed to get 2 front row seats for Sidney, I previously only had 1. I also got VIP for Campbell River, I wonder how many people will be doing VIP there? Maybe it will be a really small group, that would be cool. I have some spare tickets if anyone is interested, PM me. I have 2 in row F for Victoria (right side). I also have a single seat in the front row for Sidney (centre, A19). You can have them for face-value of course (what I paid for them).

    That made me laugh! But also a little sad. Those of us in the NYC driving range barely get a show anymore..it’s been over five years. I hope you get your wish. I made the trip to Hamilton in 2015 and was not disappointed.

    Yeah, for sure. As one would. I've heard their shows are pretty excessively loud a la Mogwai, but not the quality thing.

    Yeah! Me too. That's why I mentioned the self-distribution, because I would like to own one as well haha. Usually bands based in the UK, I wait until they tour in the hope that they bring vinyl with them. Had to wait three years for Yndi Halda to do this, for instance, but it was worth the wait - they released their most recent record "Under Summer" on "cookies and cream" coloured vinyl. It's gorgeous. Slightly related, but Twilight Sad is also touring, if you've heard of them...they are very much in the same sonic space as WWPJ - broody, crescendo-ey, really fucking loud, and unabashed Scottish accented singing! If you haven't heard of them, here's a link: Link to the show (at Velvet Underground, which is a heavy metal/industrial club, weirdly enough) : https://www.ticketweb.ca/event/the-twilight-sad-the-velvet-underground-tickets/8539025

    To me, this sounds peaceful AF. And mature. The fact that you seem to express a sort of guilt for not feeling more, I think, is completely natural. You are affable and responsive and able to be empathetic without being too attached. That makes you good at your job. From the sounds of it, we need more of folks like you around the healthcare system.

    I have given this some thought, and really, after reading what you've posted, feel that I deal with things in a similar way. Given what you've said, I think I am very similar. I look at it this way. Life is suffering, bad things happen to everyone. Things can be good now (enjoy things when they are good) but something bad will eventually happen at some point, (ie; parents get sick, kids get cancer or dog dies or whatever) and I think I've accepted that. I don't think I'm ignoring emotions or anything, more so like you said, I think I am just able to separate myself from what other people are dealing with, which really is a required skill in healthcare. I see it as an honour to provide care to people who are dying. It makes me feel good to provide good care to people in one of the most important events in their lives.

    Second is an interview Rachel did with the band back into 1999 on their Edgefest stop in Edmonton. This includes a friendly rivalry with Moist, Rachel from Much Music (who unbeknownst to most, including myself up until watching this, actually apparently gave Matt the garden gnome that would eventually appear in the Anti-Pop video), part of a live performance of Deep Six, and Dave vs Rich for Rachel's affection, lol.

    A little off topic, but I just wanted to say how awesome your site is, btw. The amount of work you've put into that thing is just astounding. Really appreciate all the rare downloads and info on there. I was looking for a full copy of the NMW West speech Matt did in 2002 for a while and your site was the only place I could find it, plus the tour dates and set lists (even if incomplete) are a really cool wealth of dates/info to have. So yeah, muchly appreciated. And thanks (along with TIPS) for the info about when Geoff officially left. Also helps with determining the possible date of the performance.

    Would be shocked to see no Vancouver Island or Vancouver especially since they were skipped on the OLP tour. By the looks of this it's probably a month and a half to two month tour starting in the west. We know he is in the Kelowna area around the 10th I'm guessing a Vancouver show or two will take place around the 7th and 8th, probably a Van isle show or two a couple days before that. I think both Victoria and Nanaimo will see shows, by February of 2019 it will have been two years since he played those markets in any capacity, definitely not too soon for a return. I like the idea of some smaller venue acoustic shows and by the looks of it this will be a full scale tour like the full band ones he has been doing recently. Definitely planning to attend several shows on this one!

    Just wanted to chime in and say that it was by her request and under special circumstances, some time ago, and that we no longer do this. Apologies, we didn't really have a policy in place and obviously did not foresee what kind of impact it would have. Marcy was a great contributor to this site and the MG community as a whole and she will be sorely missed. My sincerest condolences to her loved ones.
