i was at the show last week in toronto—you guys ROCKED! 'twas even better than the boston royale show. too bad the crowd was on the lame side (ie, not dancing, messing with their smartphones during the performance, etc). anywho, thanks for coming north so that i could dance my ass off!

Great list. I would add Hostage Calm s/t to the list, although the production might be too much, the songwriting is phenomenal and they're bringing something new to the table. I'd also add Tigers Jaw- Two Worlds.
