Sage Francis in Canada with Rise Against 11/29-12/11  Reply with quote  

I will be touring with the punk group, Rise Against, in Canada from Nov 30-Dec 11th.

Though I have played Canada many times, this is my first official tour of Canada. The last tour I did with a punk group was the Against Me! tour. I faced a fair amount of resistance from uber punk kids, but it was mostly love. I hope for the same this time through.


One more date will be added in Winnipeg.

I wish I could see one of these shows. I wish even more I could've seen one of the Against Me! shows.


Sigh.

I happen to be off work for an entire week starting on the 8th and I have people I need to visit in Ottawa and Montreal. This works out really well for me.

I was at the NYC show with Against Me!, I thought the crowd was reasonably receptive. I didn't hear any boos or horrible heckling. there were a couple of kids in the back making snide remarks, but nothing too disparaging from what I remember

In Jacksonville the soundguy shut my power off.

In other cities I had yelling matches with crowd members.

I never lost my cool. It's something I totally expect at shows like these.

But I lose my temper when heckling happens at shows where I'm the headliner. If I'm opening for a band of a different genre I'm totally prepared and willing to fight the tide.

My friend and I opened for Dizzee Rascal in Philly once. I was not having a good night cause a friend of mine had just died and I was in no mood for those assholes. I almost fought like 3 people in the front row.

hey sage....i don't mean this as disrespect, just out of curiosity.

why tour with major label punk bands instead of more indie bands, like epitaph bands for example? i remember you doing some shows with bad religion (i think)...

rise against is definitely still doing their thing the same on a major as they were on fat, so i don't want to get into all that shit, but i was just wondering about the major label vs. indie band crossover thing.
