This Friday, PS I Love You is making its way to Ottawa for what should be an amped-up show at Maverick’s. The Kingston duo of Benjamin Nelson and Paul Saulnier have announced a small tour that includes Canadian and US dates. It is also worth noting that Saulnier was voted the 99th Greatest Guitarist of all time by SPIN Magazine. We can expect quite a few new songs off their full-length ‘Death Dreams’ release through Paper Bag Records, including (hopefully) one of my favourites ‘First Contact’. If that song doesn’t get you excited for this show I’m not sure what will. Their timely release of the music video for ‘Princess Towers’ last month sets the tone for these shows, which can be watched below. From what I have heard from Toronto-based openers Army Girls, this should be a great night start to finish.
Check out The A.V. Club’s interview with frontman Paul Saulnier, it’s a good one.
