I am going to see Matthew Good tonight at Massey Hall (love this venue) as part of his Arrows of Desire album tour. The last time I saw him was during the Hospital Music tour (which came out in 2007) so it has been entirely too long since I have seen this man perform live.
I have always enjoyed his shows because aside from his musical talent he is a great entertainer. I remember at one show him doing a Stewie Griffin impression that made me cry from laughing so hard. I don’t remember what exactly he was saying but it was based on this bit. Another time he pointed out that if Al Gore is really worried about energy waste and global warming, why did he use a cherry picker in An Inconvenient Truth when a ladder would have worked just fine? He does have a point.
Anyway, it is a sold out show in a city that has a large fan base so I think it will be a great way to spend a Friday night!
This show almost didn’t happen as Matthew Good had to cancel his show in London, ON due to illness.
