  1. before i disappear again until the next album drops, i just want to clarify that i in no way think his new album sucks, and that i don't expect a thousand beautiful midnights. it's just that his creative output doesn't hit me in the feels right now. that's fine. he's done so much solid work that i'll always perk up when new stuff comes out to see if it's for me or not.
  2. i LOVE sicily and dreading it. that's it. all the respect in the world to matt as an artist, just not my thing. and respect to crusader for keeping the bored going. i thought social media would replace message boards.
  3. ticket purchased. i may or may not actually go, but i don't mind buying a ticket either way.
  4. i think i'm in love with this song. the last two albums didn't do much for me, and i haven't really listened much to matt since i went off on an all things greg dulli tangent, but this has my attention. also. wow. the bored's still here.
  5. that's a solid pass for me. no time for OLP and, honestly, i can't see ever surpassing being front row at the Rebecca Cohn in Halifax when he was touring Arrows. Garden of Knives standing right in front of Jimmy Reid with Matt directly to the right was the best it's gonna get for me.
  6. i like this album way more than Chaotic Neutral. why? couldn't tell ya. i'll be keeping an eye out for the tour. i want to here these songs live, and i may drag my butt to a dive bar to see him play them if i have to (please please please fingers crossed for a proper venue this time around).
  7. i have to admit that his tweet about doing the whole album has made me consider maybe going.
  8. playing the shitty marquee ballroom in halifax again. sadly, i'll pass on this one. count yourself lucky if you get to see him in a good venue. edit: doubly sad, as i'd love to hear born to kill live.
  9. necroed: so, i ended up going to the vip soundcheck for the show on this tour in my town and then not going to the show itself. they were good in soundcheck, but pre-soundcheck we were told by the handler that they actually couldn't let us in early to the show for whatever reason (laws or fire codes er something), and i also really really didn't want to see the opener, and i kinda realized that i just don't want to watch matthew good play in a shitty bar ever again, after seeing him play a really great venue on the last tour (arrows of desire). the stage at the marquee is awful. stu was complaining during the soundcheck that he'd be smashing his guitar off of the stupid post he had to stand next to (also, i miss jimmy reid. nothing against stu. i just like jimmy more). i don't like crowds of drunks, and i read in a review the next day what i assumed would happen anyway: that there was a lot of noise during his quieter songs. anyway, in the future, i won't be so quick to immediately buy a vip ticket as soon as they're on sale, just cuz i'm a huge fan. i've gotten older and gruffer, and will now carefully consider the venue first.
  10. i have "and we dance, and we sing, and we're all monkeys in a long line" tattooed on my arm, around a hand putting a flower in the barrel of a gun.
  11. ha. justin bieber is exactly who i thought of when i saw him, but i couldn't name one bieber song tbh, it was just his look and age i guess (profiling :o ). and locally, the show's in a bar, so 19+. what do i know...maybe the college kids are into this stuff. whatever. i'll be there for the main event.
  12. as someone who's been to 5 shows so far (not even close to what some of the people who come here have been to, i'm sure) i'm totally cool with set lists being dominated by new material. i do wish the old songs he played weren't the hits, and, instead, a few new old songs every tour that never see the light of day and deserve it, but i get that he's got to appeal to people who 'like that song off the radio from way back' or whatever. also...that opener. i just watched bungalow on youtube, and this is the first time i'll be going late to an mg show to miss the opener. i dunno...maybe he appeals to a younger crowd?
  13. i'm totally fine with this. a photo and autograph don't really mean anything. i just want moar music.
  14. been playing early access to armored warfare, which finishes up this weekend. open beta in (hopefully) a couple weeks.
  15. just quit reading last exit to brooklyn when i was almost done, because i thought it was shit, no matter what hubert selby's rep as a writer is. now half way through the bat by jo nesbo. s'alright. salman rushdie's new book is next in queue.
  16. i have a milk crate full of vinyl i never listen to (including vancouver, loes, and arrows of desire), so i've decided not to buy any more unless it's pretty special. avalanche is pretty special.
  17. i could tell from the one pic good linked on twitter from the 'secret show' that it wasn't milos on bass. couldn't make out the guitar player but was sure it wasn't jimmy. oh well. stu's toured with him a couple times anyway. i didn't see anthony in the back on keys either, so no keys. or set up on the other side. or no keys for the secret show.
  18. i keep forgetting this place until there's a new album. got my ticket/vip pass for the halifax show. has he mentioned anywhere who is in his touring band this time around? i follow jimmy reid on twitter, and he hasn't mentioned anything about touring/recording for this album, which leads me to believe he's out. i understand good's wanting the creative freedom of not having a full time band, but it sucks knowing how limited a pool of back catalogue songs he'll always be limited to with a rotating cast of hired guns.
  19. solo, afghan whigs, twilight singers, gutter twins. it's all good. he's become a favorite singer/songwriter/coverer of mine over the last couple of years.
  20. nin and explosions were epic. i was choking back tears listening to explosions, and wanted to throat punch the jerks talking through them (though i guess that's what people do during opening bands). nine inch nails were great. trent's still got it, robin finck paces the stage like a wolf, and the visuals were really cool. played a ton off the new album. the entire bell centre sung hurt with him for the last song. the only thing i'd change would be the stage presence of the new guys. they play fine, but don't move much. didn't take away from the show, but didn't add anything. but yeah, most epic show i've seen.
  21. what a solid damn album! not a skipper on it.
  22. i absolutely loved season one. will preposing to mac was an unbelievable low point to an already boring second season.
  23. great show. and morena baccarin is hot.
  24. i'd quite honestly rather see eits in a small venue, headlining, where i could be up against the stage, and they could play a lengthy set, but i've got a decent seat for this show, and they're just an unexpected bonus.
  25. anyone here who attended this show have their own review? http://exclaim.ca/Reviews/Concerts/matthew_good-juan_de_fuca_recreation_centre_victoria_bc_july_13
