The Weakerthans at Bumbershoot 2008 (more by Chris Graham)
The Weakerthans

Winnipeg indie rock favorites The Weakerthans are playing all four of their incredible full length albums in four nights in NYC and San Francisco. NYC gets their treatment of the albums with 'Fallow' on December 7, 'Left and Leaving' on December 8, 'Reconstruction Site' on December 9, and 'Reunion Tour' on December 10 and San Francisco gets theirs the week prior. Each set includes the album being played in full plus a set of favorites. Tickets for all four NYC shows, which are taking place at Bowery Ballroom, go on AmEx presale Wednesday, and then on general sale Friday (7/15) at noon. A four day pass will also go on sale Friday and it comes with a limited edition show poster.

The Weakerthans also play Vancouver Folk Fest this month as Jim Bryson's backing band and FYF Fest in September.

The Bouncing Souls just played double the amount of albums in the same amount of days in NYC and will do the same in Philly this week.

Okay, I get the point. Unless I live in NYC or LA, chances that bands I love coming to Boston are not looking good. This sucks but four dates in NYC at least means enough time to plan and make the trip.

Probably the only band I feel comfortable with seeing four days in a row.

Sing "Oh what force on earth could be weaker than the feeble strength of one" like me remembering the way it could have been

It's a play on Solidarity Forever.

For me, tough call between Left and Leaving and Reconstruction Site, but I'll be happy going to any of the four.
