Just sent off to get Teaser and Teaser Bouns! Can't wait to get them in. I loved Beatbox, and hope to get their self titled and Kiss Kiss albums soon.

6:57 pm - I <3 The Weekend

xflipsidex
I love The Weekend!! They've became my favorite band since seeing the video for "Into the Morning" on the D.E.B.S. DVD!! I finally bought Beatbox and just love it. My favorite track is "Pretty from the Outside".

I also love "Flipside"... I started a small fansite for the band, you can check it out at asfan.com/weekend. I'm hoping to have a new design up soon, as well as video captures and audio clips. :)

6:36 pm - AAAAAAAAAAH!

Oh...my...gods...

The Weekend was AWESOME. AWESOME I SAY.

From what I remember, they played Into the Morning, NYLA, Disconnected, Bring It On, Kick Myself, Pretty From the Outside (YAY MY FAVOURITE SONG), California, Cold Feet and Temporary Insanity. I think I got them all. I might be missing one. That's not the order either.

I was rocking out and from what I saw, no one was rocking out as hard as I was and I seemed to be the only one who knew the songs. I can't hear a fucking thing right now because I was standing next to the speaker on the left side of the stage. That speaker was keeping me up while I headbanged and jumped around. Thank you speaker. ^_^

The band looked awesome as usual and I got to meet Ryan Ford. He's the guitarist who looked very very tired XD. The guy was DRIPPING sweat when he was performing. He's super nice. And I wanted to steal Link's gloves.

The performance was excellent. Too bad the mic decided to fuck up in the middle of Kick Myself. Apparently they didn't get to do a sound check. Which is lame. Poor guys. Doesn't matter. They did amazing anyway.

That was great. Rocked out and home in time for dinner. ^_^ We didn't even stay for the headliner which was Hedly. We just came to see The Weekend. Amazing show. Just...fabulous.

Now...I'm off to shower and do homework. ^_^;

Bye!

~~A very sweaty and tired Lynni~~

current mood: impressed

Hey everyone! I just joined.
The weekend is amazing. I love Andreas vocals. I saw them open up for Hedley, which is another amazing band.

Tonight on CBC Radio 3,

Ottawa correspondent Amanda Putz catches up with The Weekend's Andrea Wasse just before soundcheck to talk with her about women in rock, working at Le Chateau, and writing songs for TV.

This is like maybe 10:50, or even 10:45. They're playing "Kick Myself" at around 11 if that's any indication.

Sidenote: I listened to the version of "Temporary Insanity" on the Instant Star soundtrack and it made me angry. It's not like it's bad, it's just like "That's not your song!!!" But anyway.

The Weekend are playing Saturday Feb. 5th at Call the Office in London.

Rumour (i.e. the Weekend message board) has it that this could be a CD release party?!

Either way, I can't go. ARGH.

11:06 am - LIKE OMG!!!

The sexy new site layout can only mean one of two things...either they just lost another drummer, or The Weekend are back in action! (Hint: It's definitely not the first one!)

"Recorded at Mushroom Studios in Vancouver with John Wozniak (Marcy Playground), and mixed by Dave "Rave" Ogilvie (Nine Inch Nails, Skinny Puppy, Marilyn Manson...), The Weekend's Beatbox my Heartbeat is now in the final stages of production and is this close to being in your waiting hands.

"Featuring 11 new songs, the record is full of loud guitars, sweeping (sometimes haunting) keyboard melodies, dance inducing beats, and topped off with lyrics influenced by the ways of the world and the rules of the heart. We here at Camp Weekend are all in agreement that it's the best we've offered you to date... and our level of excitement about it is off the charts."


As is mine, if you haven't guessed that yet!

(INSERT ANOTHER NEEDLESS SPAZ ATTACK HERE!!)

10:06 pm - hey

suffer__me
Maddie and I caught the free show of the weekend it was kickass. They played new music and it was really good and they played some good older songs like Victory, Bring it on and me vs. the world and stuff. And then afterwards and hell follows played, but we went around the side of the stage where the band was. Then between maddie and I we met all of the them except the bassist who was rocking the whole time and was going hardcore radical and it was cool. So Maddie talked to Link, the keyboarder about his dancing and stuff. First we met the drummer, Jason, and we was really cool and we talked abohut the new cd, that he was really good and the fact that i was ditching my drum lesson to be there. It was cool. Maddie was talking to the guitarist around that time and he was nice. Then we met Andrea and she was really nice, she gave us two of the Weekend tank tops and she was altogether cool. We got our pictures with Jason and Andrea so we can post those later :D. Then during the concert the guy beside me was trying to get a shirt and was being such a fucking jerk like "asshhole, give me a fucking shirt. bitch cmon. ill trade my beer for one." then when the bassist was handing out the shirts/ throwing them into the audience (Maddie and I were right at the front) he threw one and it was about to go straight to that asshole so I reach out my hand and grabbed it before he got it. it was great he was like "fine, at least i get to keep my beer" and it wouldnt have fit him anyway coz it fits me perfectly and hes talller and bigger shoulders coz hes a man. so it says: i <3 the weekend and on the back it says teenage usa and its white. the tanktop says the weekend and has a heart weekend logo thing and its blue. umm and it was fun. :) i had lots of fun. so happy. will post the pictures when maddie gets them developed. anyone else been to concert of their's?

12:08 pm - LOOK! SHE'S FINALLY POSTING!

winterabbit
Yes she is! Anyway, according to the website (which you've all seen already):
  • The Weekend have two new members: Randie V. on bass and Jason Pierce on drums. Whee!
  • They are playing a free all-ages show at Dundas Square (in Toronto) this Thursday, 5 PM!
  • They have a new album in the works!

    But this post did have a point, and that point is:
    What is your favourite favourite Weekend song?
    For the record, I like 'em all, but on the top of the list are Boy You and Perfect World.
