Until its confirmed I am not believing anything...
but DAMN IT. Ookfest sucks.
Its a small community college specializing in who knows what. I will be going for one band only, if this is the case.
I cant remember the last time Danko Jones came to Edmonton as a "regular" act. Opened for buckcherry (I think...) at a dance bar, opened for big sugar at a crap country bar, was part of a MGD contest night at a dirty pub, and now OokFest.
I hate Edmonton. I love Danko Jones though... so I guess OOKFEST is better than nothing.

Aww, Baller, I feel bad for you Makes me realize how lucky I am.
Same here, have seen them four times now this year and two more times to go (not trying to make you jealous Baller, but as it is a fact)
But always remember the feeling when you finally get a DJ Gig ticket and the day they'll be playing in your town or near you, the feeling when they finally hit the stage and you'll be just blown away cause they're rocking so fucking hard! Always remember this Baller, that this show you'll be waiting for so long is going to be the greatest show (or at least one of the greatest shows) you have ever seen, and the waiting for it was soo worth it
Truth be told, if there were any justice in this world, Danko Jones would be the biggest band from here and filling sold-out arenas instead of warming them up
Now, we all know that we need to wait for official confirmation before we run out and buy tickets. But.... I'm really hoping this means a tour! Also, if you guys are right about Edmonton on the 9th, that means they'll be moving East to West - which means they'll be playing Winnipeg on the Thursday! Thursday here... and then a Friday night in Regina... only a 6 hour drive... hmm... road trip?

yeah, where's the Winnipeg date? is it going to be before the already listed dates, or after? strange going from Vancouver to saskatoon....damnit i'll be upset if i miss them while i'm in London, UK Sept 14th-23rd.....
Now you're expecting a little too much ;D But I am happy for you. Here in Holland we get lots of opportunities to see Danko (even though it's never enough), but some of you ain't so lucky. I think Rocky is our least fortunate member, I wonder how long it's been since he saw a show...
