Matthew Good at the Orpheum Tonight

Comments 9 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tonight there is a pre-show meetup at the Kingston (everyone is invited) then it’s off to the Orpheum to see Matthew Good play a hometown gig. He’s never played the Orpheum before so he said it will be a pretty special event. Although I have written about the venue before, I haven’t been there since I saw Les Miserables and before that it was for my graduation commencement ceremony for high school in 1998.

Matt Good's Acoustic Show in his Home

It should be a really great show and I’m just as excited to see him play the venue as he is to perform for Metro Vancouver. I’ve seen him play at The Vogue, The Pacific Coliseum, SFU, SE False Creek, Commodore, The Centre, twice in a living room, and twice in studio. True, over the last year we’ve spent more time with his boys Benji and Casey than we have hanging out with him (you know cause of that whole tour thing) but nevertheless we still consider Matt a good friend and wish him a great show.

You can still scoop up single tickets for tonight, the concert starts at 7:30pm.

Update: Duane took some great photos of the show, here are a few that can be found on his Flickr.

It was also great to see so many people out at the pre-show meetup, including familiar faces like Amy and Kim, Phaedra, Dan, Jennifer, and Ariane and Scott afterward.

    i’ve slowly been trying to make MG converts out of people here to get them off their damn John Denver obsession.

    I might live greatly and far on the continent to the south, but I wish I was home for this.
