It's "a mixture of unwatchable and unlistenable but fun to have"

Thirty years ago today, Sloan set off on the path to become one of Canada's most beloved rock outfits with their first-ever live performance, and the band have unearthed footage from the show to mark the occasion.

While they admit it's "a mixture of unwatchable and unlistenable but fun to have," Sloan have shared their 16-minute set from February 8, 1991, in the cafeteria at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

Sure, the lighting and sound aren't top notch, but it offers a glimpse at a formative event for "the same 4 guys sounding maybe only slightly worse than they do today."

Sloan's Chris Murphy recently announced a new album with TUNS, and shared his Bell's Palsy diagnosis. Last year, Sloan shared their first-ever B-sides collection.
