I just noticed that Danko is playing the NxNE Agency Group Showcase in Toronto next week. How does the ticketing usually work for the festival? The ad in Now lists tickets at $10 but there's nothing on sale through Ticketmaster. Is that $10 at the door only? The festival's website isn't very informative. If I buy a $28 wristband does that get me into the show guaranteed? And would Danko Jones be doing a full set? I don't want to go to the trouble of leaving work early (I work an overnight shift), driving all the way downtown and paying close to $30 for a 30 minute set or anything.

If its 2am its most likely a headline set so my guess is 1 hour + long show. The wristband will get you into any venue during NXNE but if you show up too late and the venue is already full then you're out of luck.
You've got a sweet tooth and I'm your chocolate bar.
The Nickelback tour warm up show was a 2am set at the Horseshoe as well. That was also Dan's first ever DJ gig. That set was about an hour long, if I remember. It will be a good show for anybody that can make it out...
i am now changing my status to a maybe... i will... work in the morning... sleep in the day, go to the show... and then from the show, go to work early in the morning... finish that, and then come home and sleep... i will be a little sleep deprived but damn... SLEEP IS THE ENEMY
You can call me the Mango Kid, But your girl calls me BABY!!!!
The 2am gig was actually the warm-up for the Euro spring tour. It ran for around 75 minutes(remember Gordie Johnson?) Dan's first gig was only a half hour gig ~ same venue ~ went on much earlier. That was the warm-up for the Nickelback tour.
That's right. Your memory is better than mine riffwagon. Seems like at the Horseshoe, they're tacked on either at the start of the bill or at the end of it. Whatever, it's hella cool seeing them play in a smaller venue like that.
Just a note to say that this is a confirmed gig and is now on the site. My computer's been borked so I was late getting out the news. It should be a standard-length set for NXNE, I believe, which is 30-40 mins.
Just to tip anyone off that was thinking of heading down to the Horseshoe tonight for Danko's set at 2am. It has been cancelled and Danko Jones will not be performing. Due to unforeseen circumstances the show had to be called off at last minute. Everyone was looking forward to going and apologize for anyone who had made plans to fight their way into the Horseshoe tonight.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side We are strong and not afraid to die We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled WE'LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
I just read the newsletter. Tidy do u have a 6th sense? Isn't that condition usually something boxers get? NO MORE FACE SLAPPING...mr. jones! I hope youre ok...man I just thought the cancellation was something minor. Take it easy, sleep isnt the enemy right now...GET BETTER SOON.
