If you live in Ontario or happen to be visiting at some point this month, It’s the perfect time to take in a Flatliners? show.
Since the release of The Great Awake last year on Fat Wreck Chords, the band has seen a sharp rise in its audience and people have not only been grasping for CDs and posters, but for the chance to see the band live in action.
Until a punk band reaches the heights of fame such as that of NOFX, No Use for a Name, or even The Misfits, it can be pretty tough for many of us to catch a live show anywhere in Canada, since the failsafe stops are always Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver.
This month, however, The Flatliners are making a decent round of their home province of Ontario, with four stops throughout the province between the 20th and the 30th.
The venues will be the London Music Hall on the 20th, Brantford’s Club NV on the 21st, Milton’s St. Paul United on the 22nd, and finally The Red Rooster in Burlington on the last day of the month.
For anyone lucky enough to have tickets for any of these shows, you are in for a double treat because not only are The Flatliners gonna give it all they’ve got, but they’ve paired up with fellow Ontario band the Ceremonial Snips for the tour.
The Ceremonial Snips, a.k.a. The Snips, hail from Wellington, Ontario, and will add the perfect tone to the show; both The Snips and The Flatliners play a clean, polished, and energetic mix of punk rock and ska that will have the crowd on their feet every second of the show.
All four concerts are unmissable for the punk/ska enthusiast, and whichever night you choose to turn up for the show is bound to be an unforgettable, fantastic time.
If you are still unfamiliar with the music of The Flatliners or The Ceremonial Snips, you can check them out on MySpace (The Flatliners, The Ceremonial Snips); The Snips? site shares their new video, ?Gazebo of Love.?
If you’ve grabbed your tickets already and planned ahead for the event, all of Ontario and Canada has good reason to be extremely jealous of you right now! The concert listings also include guests Rocket Reducers and Time Tide, and are open to over-19 year olds as there will be booze flowing freely throughout the events.
