I usually save these Tour Dates posts for either a band that is coming through Halifax, or for Haltown bands who are heading off across this country and beyond to make their fortune, but neither of these things happens to be true for Kingston, Ont. next-big-thingers, PS I Love You.

 

While it’s true that PS I Love You aren’t coming through Halifax anytime soon, they played here a couple weeks ago and we were treated to a quick, face-meltingly-delightful set from Paul Saulnier and Benjamin Nelson. Saulnier easily won over the room with his humble persona, some heavily fuzzed-out guitar theatrics, and his flannel & Jordan 1′s ensemble. So they played a great set here recently, and while that’s a good enough reason in and of itself to share their tour dates with masses (masses in this case being measured in literally hundreds of hits), the band’s Paper Bag Records debut, Meet Me At The Muster Station, also happens to be really great. I’ve listened to it plenty in the last couple weeks, and the Ack has given it a pretty ringing endorsement, so why not check the band out in person for yourself?

 

You might want to note that a bunch of these dates are with most recent Canadian 2-piece next-big-thingers to come along before PS I Love You, so if you’re a gentle soul who doesn’t yearn for fuzzy geetars cranked up to the gigawatts, being some good earplugs. Otherwise, get out and enjoy a show!
