The Georgia Straight presents An Evening With Sloan at the Commodore

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Live Nation has announced that Canadian guitar-rock group Sloan will play a show at the Commodore Ballroom on Saturday, October 18, in support of its upcoming studio album, Commonwealth

      Consisting of Jay Ferguson, Chris Murphy, Patrick Pentland, and Andrew Scott, Sloan has released 10 albums and more than 30 singles throughout its two-decade-plus career.

      With Commonwealth, the group has taken an exceedingly democratic approach—the double album will see each member stake out a single side as his own.

      “We’re always trying to do something a little different from what we’ve done in the past,” Pentland says. “This can be as much to challenge ourselves or just stave off boredom. With four strong writers, it was inevitable that we would eventually do something like this.”

      Tickets for the show are priced at $28.50 (plus service charges and fees) and go on sale Friday, August 22, at 10 a.m. on the Live Nation website.

      Tickets will also be available for purchase by phone at 1-855-985-5000, at Red Cat Records, and at all Ticketmaster outlets.
