This is great ... it's a Weakerthans album and DVD from a live show in support of the 2007 album Reunion Tour. They were on tour to support Reunion Tour! And now there's a tour DVD! It's like a musical hall of mirrors.

The package is titled Live at the Burton Cummings Theater and feautures the band in a Spring 2009 show in their home town of Winnipeg. It includes artwork by bassist Greg Smith.

The Weakerthans have also been recording with Jim Bryson earlier this year, performing as his back up band on a new album.

Anti- Records describes the Wekerthans experience as being "... revered for both their powerfully melodic folk punk sound and the vivid and inspired imagery of the lyrics - their beloved song "Plea from a Cat Named Virtute" is told from the point of view of a depressive's wise and knowing cat." Good times.

Live at the Burton Cummings Theater will be released by Anti- Records on March 23rd.
