It's strange, yet kind of cool they're doing smaller venues. But I guess doing two dates in some cities makes up for not pllaying the big places. I've been to the sound acedemy in Toronto a few times, it's a GA venue that fits somewhere in the 3,000-4,000 range. It would be interesting to see them play a place like that given how well known they are.
Too bad the new album is just so-so.
