The Weakerthans // Deer Lake Park
Today, and for the last 5 years, The Weakerthans have maintained the title of 'Best Band in the World' in my mind.
John K. Samson is possibly one of the most important individuals in modern Canadian independent rock, being an alumnus of Propagandhi and current front-person of the Weakerthans, and consistently known for connecting the lines between personal and political better than most.
There are few bands that will make my arm hairs stand on end, send a shiver through my spine, and cause a tear to emerge from my eye.
Deer Lake Park is in Burnaby, British Columbia.
