Works fine for me...can anyone else confirm or deny the working status of Scott's photos?

Possible the "Sing-a-longs?" But I think "4 SEXY Beasts!" would probably work too! :P

Whatever name you choose, all of you definitely need to get the same green t-shirt that Chris so memorably modeled, so that you can be a true boy band. :lol:

Super awesome show. I was glad to have finally heard the band play Flamenco live. Favourite tune.

Yeah i thought it was odd too. But now I know why, and the explanation is even that much weirder: the website hosting those pics is blocked by my employer's server, and the reason is listed as...get this....

"gambling".

Here's a not-so-positive review of the show from Chartattack.com. Mostly it seems to be a review of the drunken, idotic crowd who were booing the Sadies and the Weakerthans. But they do give Downie full marks for being so crazy.

For those who missed out on the dvd of this show circulated last year, I've upped the video to Youtube for everyone to enjoy.

Cheers!

I couldn't say that any better myself. And I add you BIGVDOGG, your footage from Seattle 2013 is some of the best from that tour (might help that I was there).

I grabbed this Toronto show from Dime and thought it was the best show I'd seen. Then I went to srb's youtube page and started watching the concert from the 24th! Sherpa, Chagrin Falls, dropoff, huge jam in 100th Meridian...
I just wish your youtube uploads were 720 or better (am I being greedy? :oops: )

Without you tapers my Hiplife would be so incomplete! thank you all.
