    Default Broken Social Scene August "Something For All Of Us Tour"

    So this answer the question of who exactly will be performing in Broken Social Scene and this is the crew that everyone who is going to Lolla, Outside Lands and Sunset Junction will actually be seeing...

    "Hot on the heels of the release of the incredible Broken Social Scene Presents: Brendan Canning album, Something For All of Us..., on July 22, the Toronto-based band will be hitting the road for the Something For All Of Us Tour. These dates, which include festival stops at Lollapalooza, Outside Lands and Sunset Junction, take the band across the West Coast and, for the first time in the group's career, down to South America. For this tour, Broken Social Scene will be appearing as a seven-piece, featuring the talents of Broken Social Scene staples Brendan Canning, Kevin Drew, Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin, as well as Sam Goldberg, Leon Kingstone and Apostle of Hustle's Andrew Whiteman.

    For the Something For All Of Us Tour, Broken Social Scene will be performing songs from Brendan Canning's brilliant album of the same name, in addition to tracks from the 2007 release, Kevin Drew's Spirit If, and a plethora of fan favorites from their remarkable discography.

    Tour dates are as follows:
    8/1/08 Chicago, IL @ Lollapalooza
    8/2/08 Chicago, IL @ The Metro
    8/21/08 Salt Lake City, UT @ Twilight Concert Series
    8/22/08 San Diego, CA @ House of Blues
    8/23/08 Los Angeles, CA @ Sunset Junction
    8/24/08 San Francisco, CA @ Outside Lands
    8/27/08 Rio de Janeiro, Brazil @ Canecao
    8/28/08 Sao Paulo, Brazil @ Citibank Hall
    8/31/08 Buenos Aires, Argentina @ La Trastienda Club"

    No Emily Haines...

    last time i saw them, it was "broken social scene plays kevin drew's 'spirit if...'" and it ended up just being a big orgy of classic BSS songs. and emily haines flew out specifically for the show. not saying she's gonna do that for sunset junction, but just that it doesnt really matter who is playing, it's still gonna sound the same. except for the girl singers. that will sound different. but BSS can't really go wrong.

    I want to see Broken Social Scene (who are actually playing as BSS) when they play in Whistler on July 20th with Elvis Costello. Unfortunately, Pemberton is the next weekend and my car doesn't run on awesome.

    Well, Stars and BSS are playing the same day at Outside Lands, so if Amy Milan doesn't appear onstage during BSS, that's just lazy.
    *based upon tedious fact checking.

    "Next," however, doesn't seem to include a collaboration with Toronto collective Broken Social Scene, of which she is an original member. "It's not really as interesting for me as it once was," she said. "[It] would be like a reunion to be able to hang out with everyone -- but I can do that around a kitchen table."

    This is some bullshit. 1,2,3,4 get your ass back with BSS.

    Fuck kitchen tables damn it. Although I have to say, I liked the Emily Haines version of 7/4 I saw last October.

    Is Lisa Lobsinger still touring with them? Because she was quite capable and even nicer to look at.

    Liz Powell from Land of Talk was doing the vocals at Sunset Junction. She was good, although I didn't like her on Anthems.
