  1. Kelowna was really good last night. Didn't get much for banter or movin' around, but the voice was on point as were the rest of the guys. Impressed with the choice to start things off with Apparitions solo - wakes up in the Edmonton hospital, flies out to BC on oxygen, hides behind nobody! Way to go Matt. Apparitions (solo acoustic) Something Like a Storm Load Me Up A Boy & His Machine Gun Men at the Door Strange Days Born Losers Weapon Bullets HTB in the encore
  2. Just finished up in Kelowna. I wrote a review in the other thread the night of the Victoria show stating that the band put in an awesome effort, but that the mix in the venue was terrible which kind of mucked up that show for me. Felt kind of bad writing that the opening night of the tour, but it was what it was. I also said odds are the mix would be better at other venues. I just want to say that the sound in Kelowna was absolutely fantastic tonight. Shout out to Matt's sound guys for getting the sound so, so right, wearing "MG's Still a Real Asshole" apparel from head to toe, and roc
  3. Just finished the show in Vic. Set list as expected, obviously, and the band was super tight throughout it. IMO the highlights were FTRT, Jenni's, LGIO. 4 song encore - BL, New Song, Apparitions, then Weapon brought the house down. Good banter throughout and it really seemed like MG was enjoying the format. We were sitting in the upper level and despite the band's fantastic effort I can't help but be honest that the mix, at least from where we were situated, was the worst I have ever experienced at an MG show, and I've seen about 15. Matt's vocals were completely drowned out by the
  4. Fantastic show in Kelowna last night. Awesome venue, perfect weather, great sound and delicious wine. Looking around me before the show I was curious about the setlist considering the demographic of the night... See below, the longtime-fan-friendly, lengthy list was on point and still had everyone's attention, despite all the wine consumption (including Matt's!). He was in good spirits all night - delighting us with witty quips and the odd tale from the MGB days. Standouts to me were Omissions, How It Goes, Tripoli, Fake Empire. Metal Airplanes Strange Days So Long Mrs Smith White
  5. Fantastic show at the Kelowna Community Theatre tonight. Tight performance of a sweet setlist. Order could be a touch off: AYSD Liars Single Spark Born Losers Advertising LMU Moment Cold Water Alert Status Boy Down Lions Los Alamos Apparitions Weapon Cloudbusting Time Bomb Giant
  6. I think we all know Matt isn't exactly an outspoken advocate for drugs, but c'mon, one of his biggest hits, LMU... lyrics are open to interpretation but to me, and likely most casual listeners, that's a clear drug reference, and an important song career wise for Matt, like Daniel's song. And then there's the songs about the pills, maybe not glorification so much, but I think both Matt and Daniel are just speaking honestly about drugs, good or bad... All the great bands have touched on drugs at some point in time - and when you get right down to it "ganja" is pretty close to the lesser of all
  7. Pretty sure Matt, who smokes cigarettes, would have had the same reaction to somebody lighting up a Player's during his set - equally rude to do in a small theatre. Had these people been courteous enough to smoke whatever they wanted prior to the show, a reasonable person would be indifferent, so long as they dont act like idiots in the venue - its not the substance, its the rude act of doing it in a highly occupied space. What do you guys think Matt meant by "cause I was dimed"... Not sure how uglyredhonda can fault the opener, or go so far as to say "unless you're jamaican," when the
  8. Setlist from Calgary Night 2, order of songs may not be entirely correct. While We Were Hunting Rabbits Lights of Endangered Species Boy Who Could Explode Shallows Low What If I Can't See The Stars Mildred Born Losers Zero Orchestra X Rated Load Me Up Hello Time Bomb Non Polulus Weapon Apparitions Encore: Giant Hornets Set Me On Fire
  9. I was at the Kelowna show. I've seen Matt many times and the quality of this show was relatively average. Nothing creative really, no new songs... just rehashing, getting paid I guess. He flubbed the lyrics completely during ASR at which point somebody from the audience actually came on to the stage to jog his memory after he had stopped the song. Not a whole lot of banter throughout the show. He seemed a little out of it at times to be honest. Drummer and guitarist were great, bassist was lame as usual. Pretty good crowd for an auditorium show. The opening band Elias was pretty good.

    Tabs

    Would be pretty sweet to have some more Vancouver tabs... If you have any, by all means please add them to the wiki!
  11. "that's one hell of a fuckin' guidedog" ellicited, deservedly so, many applause.
  12. I was underwhelemed by last night's show in Saskatoon. I'd seen Matt many times before, and this one was the least exciting. I also felt a little ripped off when he quit after FTFI. Too many singles, setlist was shorter than most of the other shows, and he underperformed on many of the key vocal moments. I will say that it did at least look like he was trying, so maybe he's feeling ill? I understand its a bit of a point of contention these days, but I've gotta admit I'm one of those MG fans that think these setlists are... lacking. LMU, Apparitions, & HTB... that's weak. I lo
  13. Actually, he played some AOB tunes on his solo acoustic tours. That doesn't increase the odds that he'll start playing any this tour - just saying he hasn't completely avoided them since 2005.
  14. Anyone here have the vids and willing to share them?

    Rich

    Rich seems like a nice guy, but I wonder what creative influence he actually has on the music. Probably very little, so if that is the case then losing him shouldn't be a big deal.
  17. It's not like I called him an asshole. We've been through this already.
  18. Technically, i used said labels because they were a part of my question. I was trying get at what it was like to be a has-been. I completely agree. Alot of MuchMusic's programming is pure crap. But one could argue that even they are clever enough to stay away from MG's downward spiral. ;) This is pretty much the reaction I anticipated. I don't really have a problem in particular. I'm not sure why you're catching that drift, because I've kept my composure pretty much the whole time. I did so ask questions. Just because you don't like them doesn't make
  19. Fact: Matthew Good's career is not nearly as prosporous as it was during the BM days. BM has sold approximately 250,000 copies. WLRRR has sold about 1/10th of that. Furthermore, his last single, Its Been Awhile Since I've Been Your Man, was played a grand total of twice on MuchMoreMusic. Remember when HTB and LMU were played to the max on MuchMusic? He's come a long way since winning those MMVAs back in 2000... I believe that releasing a greatest hits album is a sign that Universal is trying to make one last buck off him before tossing him to the side. Because he's including s
  20. Dear Matthew Good: 1) Is it embarassing for you to have a board like this one devoted to you? I ask this because in the past, when you were a somebody, there have been some quality communities dedicated to you. These communities contained a decent percentage of intelligent people. Having a group of rational beings interested in you must have been a great ego boost. Most of these quality boards have dropped your name and have long since moved on, while this one remains as a hangout for fanboys and girls that will love you no matter what you do. Do you believe that you have driven away
