Matthew Good is currently on tour here in Canada promoting his latest album, Vancouver. The tour concludes in less than two weeks with two shows in Toronto’s prestigious Massey Hall (where I was lucky enough to see Matt a few years ago).
A batch of shows in the United States were just announced over on Matt’s website, so if you’re in the states, head on over and check them out. I caught Matt play down in Seattle on his last US tour with my friend John Bollwitt, and it was a great show. Given that both Seattle shows are on weeknights this round, I probably won’t be able to catch one. But given how the wind sometimes blows me in weird directions, I may just end up somewhere that Matt is playing south of the border.
If you haven’t heard any of Matthew Good’s music before, I highly recommend heading over to iTunes and grabbing some. Matt’s previous album, Hospital Music, opened at #1 in Canada, and his currently album, Vancouver, opened at #2. His music has definitely been a big part of my life, and continues to be so.
Here’s a bit of video I shot in Abbotsford during the rehearsals for the current tour (Dale Mugford did a great job editing the video all together). Enjoy!
