Indie rock poets The Weakerthans are out with their new CD/DVD, Live at the Burton Cummings Theatre. Recorded a year ago at, you guessed it, Winnipeg's historic Burton Cummings Theatre (right across the street from the Manitoba Music office), the the two-disc set features some familiar favourites and live action as the band toured in support of their acclaimed release, Reunion Tour. Before the March 23 release, the quartet spent some of January recording at Falcon Lake with Jim Bryson, hit Australia for a tour in February, and now readies itself for its upcoming Canadian tour documentary.  Produced by Farpoint Films and directed by Caelum Vadnsdal, the feature-length concert and tour film We're The Weakerthans. We're From Winnipeg. is set to air on MTS Winnipeg on Demand as well as local theatres sometime this year. While you wait, the band offers up "Benediction" from the new live album, available in The Loudspeaker until April 8.
