Matthew Good @ Noble Studios

. : : September 24th, 2013 : : . I have to say, I’ve been very lucky. I win more than my fair share of contests — and when I don’t, I have a lot of friends who do. The luck, at least as far as concerts go, has been especially hot recently, which is a shame with my recording gear in such ill repair. A recent example of my luck was when a new start-up radio station in Toronto, Indie 88, hosted a listening party for Matthew Good‘s latest album, Arrows of Desire, which consisted of a 45-minute interview, sneak preview of the…

Matthew Good @ Yonge/Dundas Square (NXNE 2012)

. : : June 15th, 2012 : : . I don’t make it out to NXNE every year. My interest in the festival is directly relative to the amount of bands I know playing it. Which, really, isn’t the point. The whole point of the festival is to sort of hop around and sample a bunch of music — mostly Canadian. In previous years, I’ve fallen deeply, madly in love with bands I’ve discovered for the first time at the NXNE festival. Kathleen Edwards, anyone? Or maybe Colleen Brown, perhaps? Hawksley Workman suit you well? How about Danny Michel? The list goes on and on. But,…

Matthew Good @ Queen Elizabeth Theatre

. : : November 3rd, 2011 : : . This summer, I’ve been all about the East Coast Canadian bands. Meaghan Smith, Paper Lions, and Rebekah Higgs are just a couple of the artists who have called the shore along the Atlantic ocean home that I’ve seen multiple times since the frost melted, but it wasn’t always like that. I used to be much more interested in the West Coast bands. The Organ, Limblifter, and, of course, Matthew Good were the beginning of my love affair with bands out of BC. One band has disbanded, another on indefinite hiatus, and the third has fallen out of favour, the…

Matthew Good @ Status Lounge

. : : July 1st, 2010 : : . My interest in Canadian alt-rock was minimal at best throughout high school. While I eventually got into bands such as Moist and Our Lady Peace, it wasn’t until their sophomore albums, well after the bands had been established as a Big Deal. More frequently, however, were others like I Mother Earth and Matthew Good Band, who barely registered on my radar. In the late 90’s, I’d become enamored with the grungier side of alternative music: the Smashing Pumpkins, Bush, Nirvana and Placebo were at the top of my musical interests, and these bands almost exclusively originated from the United States and Britain. I…
