Canadiana’s Finest – Matt Mays to Play Commodore Ballroom March 28th

Matt Mays

One of my all-time favourite Canadian east-coast rockers—nay—one of my favourite rockers PERIOD is coming to play Vancouver’s famous Commodore Ballroom this Thursday, March 28th, and I couldn’t be more stoked. His name is Matt Mays, and if you enjoy some good ol’ fashioned rock’n’roll and haven’t heard Mr. Mays’ music, you need to open your ears and bask in the musical glory. He now has compiled 5 studio albums worth of awesomeness for you to consume.

Matt released Coyote in 2012 via Sonic Records—his first album since 2008—and the album failed to disappoint. Coyote has garnered accolades such as a Sirius/XM Indie award as well as an ECMA music award. Mays is currently touring in support of Coyote all over North America. If you want tickets for the Vancouver show, you can get them here via Ticketmaster.

Matt also recently released the video for Indio, his second single off of Coyote. Check it out here: Matt Mays – Indio (Official Video)

I’m super pumped for this show, mostly because I’ve never seen Matt Mays live (with a 2-song exception during the Vancouver Olympics where I missed 90% of his rainy, outdoor set) and I’ve been a huge fan of his for almost 5 years. If all I’ve heard is true with regards to Matt’s shows, you REALLY don’t want to miss this one. Especially considering it’s at the exceptional Commodore Ballroom AND the tickets are only $25 + taxes. And to make things a little sweeter, the terrific July Talk are opening. Oh, and I’LL be there. It’s a win-win-win!

See you there!?
