  • Favourite MG(B) Song
    Weapon; Folk Singer
  1. Most of Broken is awesome, but Folk Singer is one of my favourite songs by Matt ever.
  2. Has anyone been to the VIP meet-and-greet yet? I've got my tickets for tomorrow night, and I'm kinda wondering what to expect - the letter in the package mentions that he'll sign one item per person and you can take pictures, but that's all I know.
  3. Hey guys, I'm looking for some tabs and/or chords for Vancouver but the MGTab site hasn't been updated for some time, and I haven't been able to find them elsewhere. Has anyone else come across them? I'm particularly looking for Volcanoes and On Nights Like Tonight.
  4. Chiming in late on the London show, I gotta say - I've seen every show he's done in London since 2002 (excluding 2003), and performance-wise, this was the best full-band show I've seen. Very intense, very rocking perfomance. I would've liked to hear him banter some more and play a song or two sololy acoustic, yes, but it's his decision and I walked away satisfied nonetheless. "On Nights Like Tonight" was a great opener, and the transition into "Avalanche" was a perfect fit. Similarly, "Born Losers," "Us Remains Impossible", and "It's Been A While Since I Was Your Man" connect well thematically and musically. The set was very Vancouver-centric but many of the songs sound much better live - "Great Whales of the Sea" is a lot better live. About playing HTB and LMU... I miss the days when Matt digressed into an extended instrumental section following the solo in Time Bomb; I'm a little sick of it live, but I must say that it sounds a lot better now than it used to for some reason - playing it faster and/or rougher I suppose. Same goes for Load Me Up, though I still enjoy it. The thing that bothers me most is that it makes all the fairweather, single-obsessed fans in the crowd obvious. I'm sure it's discouraging to him that the best reactions he evokes are from those old singles. The cheers when "Born Losers" similarly make me cringe - those same fans just don't listen to the meaning of the words. Highlight of the show for me was "Volcanoes" - love it on the CD, loved it live. "ONLT/Avalanche" was awesome as well, I'd love to hear that again.
  5. Hell, I'd probably love to play any of his songs in Guitar Hero or Rock Band, I'm not too picky. It'd be cool to see his tracks in RB, so I could handily dominate the vocals.
  6. So, I'm a little late in asking this...but all the tracks of the bootleg ended up being clipped for me - they all ended about a minute early, cutting the songs short. What's the issue here?
  7. So, who's going? I know I will be - for the sixth time. I've seen him once a year since 2002, except for 2003, so I'm glad and excited to be carrying on the tradition. I have a question regarding cameras. Last year, when he played Centennial Hall again, the tickets said no cameras or recording devices of any kind. I know Matt doesn't care, since he posted those fan shots, but I still didn't risk using my camera. Did anyone have any problems with this last time? I've since gotten a DSLR and would really love to get some shots with this superior camera, but it's really obvious and I'm a little reserved about using it... See you there!
  8. I should have clarified this earlier - I see him sticking with music, one way or the other.
  9. No matter what style he goes with, I end up loving it all the same. And I can see him dropping the music thing after his contract's up, but then all he has is going into politics, and I don't think he'd be able to work with the jackasses in governments these days. It's all speculation anyway. ;)
  10. I read a recent article in the London Free Press where he said he had no idea what he was going to do with this record.
  11. I think this style - just him and his guitar - suits him perfectly. I'd love to see his next album be like this.
  12. Cman, you are the luckiest bastard walking the face of the earth.
  13. My friend and I are looking into Can't Get Shot.
  14. I thought it was "What follows this kills," but I'll listen to it again later and check.
