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].

December 8th, 2009 (w/ Tropics), Mavericks Bar, Ottawa

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.
