Three Days Grace + The Used

There’s a lot of big names coming through Medicine Hat lately, is this a sign of our city growing up?

Either way, Three Days Grace with guests The Used will be playing at the Arena in just over a month’s time on November 28th, 2009 (7PM). Although I’m not a huge fan of Three Days Grace myself, but their newest video (shown below) is pretty sweet; albeit, a bit lame in some ways. They are also a hugely successful rock band with tons of radio hits. Their last released album, “Life Starts Now” sold more than 6 million worldwide which is a nice accomplishment for the Canadian rock band from Norwood, Ontario.

The Used on the other hand are an American post-hardcore (punk/rock/emo for the laymen) band that is touring to promote their newest album, “Artwork” which was released on August 31st, 2009. It’s quite odd for me listing The Used as a guest considering they are definitely the more popular band and have also achieved Gold and Platinum statuses in more than six countries worldwide. I also quite enjoy their music.

Tickets are $44.50 (floor) or $39.50 (seats) or, supposedly, you can get a VIP package for this event. What that means, I have no idea, but it will cost you $250.00 or $175.00. Call 403-502-8777 for more details on those.

Uh oh, is this another semi-positive article about a non-My96FM event? Sound the Kim Johnston alarms! I kid, I kid. Some people will know what I am talking about.

    Oh snap, you beat Taylor to the article.

    Coincidentally, I was also going to sound the Kim Johnston alarm too by saying that I think Taylor and I are going to this show. She said something about her parents having tickets but having to go to a Christmas party that night instead, so we might be supporting a mainstream band that gets radio play, eeek!

    We are going to this show! We will be on the floor with all the emo kids squealing for The Used. I’m so happy to be exposing you to your first concert of not annoying punk/ska/garbage.

    Also, I have been procrastinating for almost a month on writing this post, I deserve to have it taken from me.

    I saw this the other day when I was on, I was like “The Used … what?” Seems so random, they’re good news bears.

    The Used is super fantastic. I’m not going since I’ve seen them twice, but I imagine it will be good times. Three Days Grace I could care less about, but at least it’s a pop/punk/rock show rather than another hip hop show.

    Whether a band is “emo” or not is a huge semantic debate and I don’t like to debate semantics or things that are completely subjective or interpretative. I actually wrote something many years ago about the whole emo/screamo/hardcore debate thing when it was more popular:
