So the first concert the Weakerthans will play is a tiny club called the "Royal Albert Arms" which apparently is like the CBGB's of Winnipeg. There is even a neat documentary about the club you can see here. It looks good and I really wanna see it!
This show will feature songs from their first album FALLOW. I adore this album of course, but I also admit it is my least favorite of their 4 albums. Does that even make sense?
But what I wonder is how the people of Winnipeg feel about this first album. Fallow must have seemed like a big change, as John K Samson had just left a popular punk band called Propagandhi. This was a definite departure in style. I always find it interesting what a band's local community thinks about these things. Is Fallow their favorite album because it is their "first"? Or was there reluctancy because John left a band that seemed to be doing well at the time.
