Gute Nachrichten aus Kanada: The Weakerthans nehmen an den Olympischen Spielen in Vancouver teil und werden Olympiasieger im mehrstimmigen Chorgesang. The Weakerthans kündigen für Ende März ihr erstes Live-Album an.
The Weakerthans new DVD/CD/LP “Live at the Burton Cummings Theatre”, set for release on March 23, offers a jubilant testament to the Winnipeg band’s considerable creative powers as both literary minded songwriters and charismatic live performers.
The live DVD was recorded in April of 2009 as the band toured in support of their album “Reunion Tour” with an expanded line-up featuring trumpet, violin and female vocals, playing songs from all four acclaimed releases in front of an adoring and ethusiastic hometown crowd.
Even the DVD/CD/LP’s artwork is a painitng by bassist Greg Smith, one of several pieces inspired while on the April tour. From the songs to the live performance to the visual presentation, all in all, the DVD/CD/LP captures moments in time. A musical experience shared by a band and their fans.
