Broken Social Scene Start European/Australian Tour

Broken Social Scene have broken free from Canada to go on tour. Maybe they're still reeling fresh from that crazy Canadian election that turned their their government like a giant U-turn towards a conservative take over. Those crazy Canadians are so behind the times (and the U.S.) in politics... we had our conservative shift way back in 2000. At least Canada is making great music — which brings us back to Broken Social Scene...

They've kicked off a month of overseas tour dates. Perhaps in hommage to vampirism, they've started in Italy's famous Transilvania. From there, they'll sweep across the European Union (U.K. mostly) before going to Australia.

The band just finished a three night stand at New York's Webster Hall to a mixed reaction from fans. Apparently there were some sound and noise level issues the first night as the beats from a dance club beneath Webster Hall started bleeding through to the show, which caused the band to stop playing. By some accounts, the show never seemed to recover.

But the next two nights seemed to provide an example of a band that can let the music flow on all the right levels at the right times.

"Tonight was incredible. We just had so much fun tonight," said Jimmy Shaw, while speaking to Ryan Enriquez.

"It's been about a year and half since I played a Broken Social Scene show, and my God are they fun. It's like a party down there [on stage]. With so many people performing, a lot of us can take a break for a few songs, have a few drinks, and then go back on. It's a really fun way to tour."

They haven't been confirmed for the SXSW music festival, but those dates are conspicuously open on the tour schedule... right after they come back from Australia...

B.S.S are touring in support 0f their 2005 self-titled release.
