who's left and who's leaving

Those stains in the carpet, this drink in my hand,
these strangers whose faces I know.
We meet here for our dress-rehearsal to say
"I wanted it this way"
and wait for the year to drown

It makes me sad that this group hasn't moved in nearly a year, so here's a cover of Left and Leaving that my boyfriend did yesterday for me. I hope you enjoy it!

Dear The Weakerthans,

Thanks for cancelling your lollapalooza set, because I forced everyone to get up and go about three hours prior to any other act we wanted to see, then you cancelled. :(

The Weakerthans on "The Vinyl Cafe" this week [Wednesday
April 30th, 2008 @ 9:16pm]

For those who may not know, The Vinyl Cafe is a weekly radio show on CBC Radio One and Two (and selected US stations). It features music, essays and stories, all recorded in front of a live audience. This week's show will feature our favourite band performing in their hometown of Winnipeg. :)

[EDIT] An mp3 podcast of the entire show (59:27) can now be downloaded at

(I suggest downloading it sooner rather than later, as they sometimes take them offline after a month or so.)

One Great City
Left and Leaving
Night Windows

Bonus podcast-only track:
Sun In an Empty Room

This week on the Vinyl Cafe Apr 30, 08

"The World's Smallest Record Store"

Join host Stuart special musical guests The Weakerthans this week on the Vinyl Cafe for a brand new show from Winnipeg, Manitoba. The first Vinyl Cafe show ever to be recorded in Winnipeg.

Stuart has a tribute to the city of Winnipeg and a brand new story about Dave: Someone challenges Dave by saying his record store is not, as he claims, the world's smallest. And Dave catches a boy shoplifting in the Vinyl Cafe and Dave has the most unusual response.

setlist? [Monday
October 1st, 2007 @ 8:40pm]

hey guys,
i'm new to the comm. and i was wondering if anyone had seen the boys on their current tour.
i've never seen them before and was kind of curious about what they play live and what they don't.
even though seeing john k at all is amazing, i'll be pretty bummed if they don't play "confessions of a futon revolutionist" anymore.

Okay, I know this a really obscure long shot... [Monday

But does anybody have a copy of what I think was an older acoustic performance of Relative Surplus Value that used to be up on this myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/peaceandunityandyourmom

Cheers! Hope you're all living, breathing and loving the new album like I am!

On NPR This Afternoon... [Wednesday
September 26th, 2007 @ 9:37pm]
NPR did a nice little feature on Reunion Tour with John K. Samson, thought some of you might be interested.  It was a great interview.  You can listen to it by clicking the red "Listen" button at the top of the page, and they also have three of the songs to stream as well.  Enjoy.
