ConstantinesToronto, ON February 13
Reverent, respectful and spurred by their old friends in Rockets Red Glare, Constantines honoured WL 500 by playing their wildest show in recent memory. The day before, Con Will Kidman entered a hospital with an undisclosed ailment, preventing him from playing. Weirded out, the Cons forged on, with a plan to play pre-Will songs, fatefully blossoming into performing their self-titled, 2001 debut album in its entirety. Inspired by RRG and all that WL meant to the band when they too began some ten years ago, Constantines flailed at their origin songs, roaring lyrics and headbanging like the hungriest band around.
