Possibility Of A New Ep!

Recommended Posts

I imagine I'll see you at the soon coming LA show? I might even try to attend the San Fran show. Again, since these are all still tentative, I guess it's still up in the air.

Hell yes I'll be there ;) ... so long as I'm back from Africa... but he said that it would coincide with SXSW, which is in March, so I think I'm good...

What will you be doing in Africa? And, I read that South by Southwest, but what exactly is it?

My sister & I (she was at the LV thing too) are going to work in an orphanege in Kenya for 6 weeks (it's not a church thing, we're just doing it... to do it)

 

South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of interactive, film, and music festivals and conferences that take place every spring in Austin, Texas.

My post was in response to having "Can't Get Shot..." on the EP ;)

He'll have to play Metal Airplanes in Boston...

 

Just to get the obligatory cheer from the Sawx fans.

 

Chicago too for those Cubbies.

I always assumed that lyric is referencing the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs... Like a simile for having some inner conflict or something?

I would imagine that's the case, seeing as the Cubs and the Red Sox are in different leagues. Cubs are AL and the Red Sox are NL. But, the White Sox are also NL. Either one doesn't make much sense seeing as they would only play each other in interleague play, and that's not very often. But, White Sox and Cubs both being in Chicago would make some sense.

I always thought it was the Cubs vs Chicago White Sox, since the Cubs & Red Sox virtually never play each other, while the Sox & Cubs play 6 times every year.

 

I take this phrase as being something about losers, since at his time of writing the song the White Sox had probably not won the World Series since 1917 i believe and the Cubs since 1908. The Red Sox, until a few years ago, hadn't won the World Series since 1918.

 

either way, they're all metaphores for losers IMO.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Well I would drive to Rochester or Detroit to see Matt again, I have no problems with that, I have driven/taken trips much farther to see other bands play.

i'd rather him release the whole Massey Hall show than anything else. That would be incredible. We need a live album Matt!

Nope. Cubs and Red Sox. Losers.

 

That's what it is.

Man, a hardcopy of a new EP would be great! I'm looking forward to any type of release from him. I should be more patient though, I mean Hospital Music is a pretty new CD as it is!

If there is a hard copy of this EP, how will it be released?

Do you think Matt will found an independent label? Or find another small, Vancouver-based one?

I can neither confirm nor dispute that. What isn't in dispute is that the original run of Underdogs was released under the label "Darktown Records" and later by Universal.
