Rolling Tundra Revue part 1: The Constantines, Lee’s Palace, Toronto, 8 April 2005
This is part two in the ongoing series of bands that are coming to Kingston that I won’t be seeing for one reason or the other. I missed Feist and it looks like I will miss both Constantines shows next week at the Grad Club. If you are in town (or anywhere else on their current tour) I highly suggest you check them out if you like to rock out. And really, who doesn’t like to rock out?
In March and April the Constantines and the Weakerthans teamed up for a transcontinental tour of Canada doing 28 shows in 17 cities, starting in St. John’s and ending in Vancouver six weeks later. I caught their first show at Lee’s Palace in Toronto which fell exactly midway in the tour.
This was my first time seeing
both bands The Constantines and I wasn’t disappointed. The Constantines played a tight, high energy set to a very receptive crowd. (reviews here and here). Here my recording of their show. As usual, it is from an analogue recorder so quality isn’t tops. I did my best to identify the songs but I couldn’t find a set list so please let me know if I got anything wrong – and for the life of me I couldn’t identify the second song. If you know what it is I would be most grateful if you left me a comment. Also, I missed a bit of the middle of the last song. All files are on rapidshare so click and follow. Complete set with banter is zipped and ready to go at the end. Keep an eye out for the Weakerthans set from this show which I will post….sometime.
