We Are Not The Kids We Used To Be: Alexisonfire Farewell Tour @ Sound Academy, Toronto December 28th, 2012 I remember the day I bought Watch Out! (2004), I think I was probably 16. I picked it up at a mall I had never been to, and while walking down the street in my neighborhood a few hours later, someone yelled “fucking Avril” at me our their car window as they drove by. In retrospect, that’s pretty funny, but at the time I was pissed ‘cause as far as I was concerned the Dickies pants I was wearing half way down my ass was a look that I came up with. Sometimes you get sick of watching a band play live, but I’ve probably seen Alexisonfire eight or nine times over the years. They were just one of my go-to bands in high school, a fixture of the Toronto scene. I think growing up I just assumed that being able to so closely watch a band come into their own was a normal thing people did, and I had that experience with a few bands that came out of this city – but it’s not.
