Posted in Uncategorized at 1:26 pm by rgsc

Hey everyone. I’m just popping in here to remind you that the Annual Salvation Army Winter Relief Benefit show is happening tonight at The Mansion.

Luther Wright says:

This time we are at the Mansion in Kingston for 2 shows in one night featuring Sarah Harmer, P.S. I Love You, Sheesham Crowe, Luther Wright, Chris Brown, Kelly & Ball xmas xplosion, Paul Langois of the Tragically Hip and Awna Teixeira of po girl. Tickets are limited and available at the club or Zap Records in Kingston. First show is 7:30 and is all ages and the 2nd show is at 11 and is 19 plus.

Got that? Two shows –¬† but I hear that they are going to be more-or-less the same sets. Get out, support a great charity & see Weeping Tile.

Can’t go? Give to the Salvation Army – they do exceptionally good work and you should support them.

Here are some highlights from the Weeping Tile sets from the 2004 and 2006 shows. Enjoy & happy holidays.

* Good Fortune [2004]
* Hey Ya! [2004]
* Cold Snap [2006]
* Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight) [2006]

Buy the fantastic Weeping Tile records.

The Constantines & The Weakerthans: Rolling Tundra Revue, The Alehouse, Kingston, 29 March 2009

Hello friends. It has been a while, eh? Did you think I forgot about you? Honestly, I sort of did. I had posts more or less prepared and then…nothing. What does it take to bring me out of hibernation after 2 months? The rawk of the Constantines, that’s what. The band is celebrating its 10th anniversary by going on a 10 date tour of Ontario with some of their friends. They kick it all off in Ottawa on Tuesday and then, on Wednesday, they are going to blow the doors off the Grad Club in Kingston. The opening act? A fellow by the name of John K. Samson, you might be familiar with his band. Yeah…it is going to be pretty amazing.

And, amazingly, it appears there are still tickets left for the Kingston show. You better¬† hop on it, ’cause it almost certainly will sell out. [update: the show is now sold out].

Dates on the Constantines’ tour include (full dates):

December 8th, 2009 (w/ Tropics), Mavericks Bar, Ottawa
December 9th, 2009 (w/ John K. Samson),The Grad Club, Kingston
December 10th, 2009 (w/ John K. Samson), The Casbah, Hamilton

The Cons and the Weakerthans swung through town in the 2009 Rolling Tundra Review tour in March. They were both pretty spectacular. Below you will find a few tracks from both sets. Enjoy.
