Matthew Good 2012 Summer Tour

Recommended Posts

Its not summer, nor is it a tour, but I was at the show tonight. As to be expected, lots of drunk idiots, and obviously the setlist was pretty much all singles. Still, good times.

I thought it was one of the most high energy MG shows I've seen in a long time, probably not since the 2004 WLRRR Tour. For those you who went to those shows back in the day you'll know what I'm talking about. You could tell he was really amped up and in Rock 'n Roll mode, probably from the more rock inspired work they are doing on the current record they are working on.

 

I also think his new guitarist (his name escapes me, but he reminds me of Jack Black) really sets a great mood and I think he helps Matt up his stage presence, cause Matt can get a little subdued sometimes. Even Milos looked liked he was a bit more into it than usual. The punch after punch of his more known rock classics was obviously best suited to this type of crowd of drunken football fans. But it was great to see that Matt can still maintain steady high energy throughout a show which I think is a good sign of things to come on the next tour which I imagine will be this sort of high octane rock show to coincide with the energy of the new record.

 

I also thought the live version of Zero Orchestra DESTROYS the album version, which I never liked, but i was highly impressed with it live. Great to hear Champions of Nothing again which I haven't seen since Live at Massey Hall, but it was a strange choice as a set-finisher given the high energy set.

show #15 for me (is that all?!)

 

maybe the weirdest setting for a concert i've ever seen. playing in a room that can probably hold 20000 people but really only containing football fans from every damn province in the country. i was expecting some new material but then i realized that this was not the place. i'm not sure if most people were there for sam roberts or matt.

I was thinking about this show today! I could've sworn I remember seeing him play Motorway to Roswell, but I couldn't remember which show. Folk Fest. That was it. Pretty sure someone was wearing a bunny costume also. And my blessed Suburbia. I wished really hard it might pop up at one of my shows this tour, but no such luck. Such a wicked track.
