10/10/08 Troublemaker Tour Show 17: Vancouver - GM Place


Tonight's show was what is known in touring talk as a hit and run - sandwiched between the Portland and Seattle shows, we came into Vancouver in the early morning, rested a bit, did the show, and packed up to go on to Seattle. It's too bad because Vancouver is such a neat city, and for the most part all the band and crew see are the hallways of the GM Place Arena, home of the Vancouver Canucks. Those halls were painted with such slogans as "We Are All Canucks". And maybe they are right. Anyway, regardless of how little we were able to hang in the 'Couve, The crowd was robust, loud and showed the band a lot of love. Viva Vancouver!

Here are some pix from tonight's show (click on them to see them bigger)




For the San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego shows, Brian Bell's other band The Relationship will opening the show! But to see them, youll have to arrive early, becsue The Relationship will be playing at 7PM sharp! Its The Relationship, then Tokyo Police Club, then Angels And Airwaves, then Weezer. So no excuses, come to the show on time and get the full measure of Rock!

RIVERS NEEDS YOUR STICKERS! Rivers needs to decorate his drum kit (the one on the side of the stage, not Pat's in the middle), and he wants stickers to do it. Years ago, you served my father in the Clone Wars; now - er, wait - I mean, years ago, Rivers asked for stickers for his guitar, and hundreds of you tossed envelopes loaded with crazy stickers onstage for days - his Stratocasters were quickly plastered! Can we count on you guys to come thru again? However you can get them to us works - if you see me, pass em over - if youre close to the stage, toss em up! Just write "Stickers for Rivers" on the envelope! Thanks people!
