Alexisonfire @ Festival Hall (2012-12-12)

I'd seen Alexisonfire twice prior to this show but both times it was at soundwave and I only caught about 7 songs of the set. The first time I left early to see Jim Ward and the second time I arrived late as I was watching The Weakerthans. Both times however I loved what I saw but was disappointed with them playing mainstage. Flash forward a few years and they're calling it quits and playing a dozen or so shows to celebrate. Only a few are outside Canada and Australia are lucky to get two of them. Needless to say I had to be there...

From a fans standpoint this show was pretty spot on. Giant setlist and a good selection of songs. The whole band really seemed into it which was great considering 2 of them have quit. Looks like there is no hard feelings there. Big singalongs to every song was cool to see/hear. I'm gonna miss these guys.

This was recorded from the balcony so the sound is pretty great and balanced. I had some sort of sickness so I cough a few times in the recording but I tried to time it with a loud kick or snare to hide it. I think I did a pretty good job. Also, I have about 85 minutes of video of this show and am thinking of compiling a DVD of it considering it could be one of the last recordings of the band. If you filmed any of the show in HD (iPhone 4/4S) send it my way.
