    What a talent. I have been a fan for a few years but have never got to see them live. They played the Shelter tonight, which is a super small basement club that probably holds less than 200 people. It was a wall of sound. The band was unreal.
    Ian is out of this world good. Played a number of Suhr guitars. He had Pete's amp on stage but it wasn't turned on. I have no idea what amps he played through. They were in cases behind the Suhr.

    Good stuff. Big fan here & will be seeing them in January.

    This band should be playing stadiums, not 200-seat basements. Here's hoping they make enough of a living to keep on keeping on for many years.

    Bands like King's X and Rival Sons elicit the same response from me. While we like to see truly talented people reap the rewards they deserve, all we can do is default to the sentiment in the bolded part of the quote above and feel fortunate that we have the opportunity to see and appreciate bands like this in intimate settings.

    Indeed! I dig the smaller shows.... They craft the sound for the smaller shows and and the eyeball interaction is intense! ...however. The BIG rock show energy in Toronto was amazing! This was starting to feel like a BIG tour.

    The Theater tour.... last month (decent audio, pretty good vid)

    Club shows..... (bad vid, great audio)

    Ha! He should! Evangelizing turns some off... turns some on. Many more on. Sorry if you're in the former.

    I'm a huge fan as well.
    The guys have been using some Morris amps as well.

    He had a Morris and the Suhr in flight cases on the floor.

    The sound was huge. The whole band was super tight. I have never heard a band so tight and big sounding live. It was something to witness. I can't recommend this band enough. I am still buzzing...or that could be the permanent ear damage.

    I have the same buzzing feeling from seeing them 3 weeks ago! Agree that the sound was huge and the band really tight. Got to say that this show is one of the best sounding shows I have ever seen.
    Ian is so talented, amazing player , amazing singer. Can't wait to see them again.

    Excellent band. They actually had several hits up here in the 90's and were quite big at one point. They broke up for a bit and Ian Thronley put together another band, Thornley, that did fairly well. I think the break that Big Wreck took slowed their momentum a bit but they still rule. They have been touring with Morris amps.

    Ian Thornley is a monster. Been a huge fan since the 90s. Killer songwriter, guitarist, vocalist... His talent is unreal.
