SXSW Friday: Sloan


I died and went to Canadian power pop heaven, Sloan were playing there and did I just see Tobias Funke in the audience? Sloan fans are tall dudes who sing along to their melodic rock songs with total delight.

The men of Sloan are older dudes, but they're still pretty easy on the eyes—this is Andrew Scott, quite reasonably singled out by Chart magazine as one of the 20 Sexiest Musicians in Canada.
