Trews truly awesome as usual

E-mail Print PDF

 I hate to miss a Trews show, but Saturday nights are tough with my radio show and a heap of other great shows to get to.

 But I arrived in time to catch the tail end of their Nov. 19 show at Average Joes and just in time to hear my absolute favourite Trews tune “ Misery Loves Company.”The Trews returned to Lethbridge, Novv. 19. Photo by Richard Amery

As expected, the Trews supplied plenty  of big guitar riffs from brothers John-Angus and Colin macDonald and catchy vocal harmonies , plus lots of frenetic keyboard playing, not that I could see much of it because of  flashing Terminator strobe lights blinding the audience and leaving the band pretty much in darkness on stage.

 But it’s still the Trews , who rocked as always, which is the truth.

 They followed up “ Misery Loves Company,” with a long jam on “Poor Ol’ Broken Hearted Me” and slowed things down after that for the mournful “ Hope and Ruin.”
 They officially ended their show with a punkish rocker I didn’t recognize, but were called back for an encore of  the apt “ Not Ready Go.”
They weren’t ready to go as they played one more before bringing  the show to a close at 11:45 p.m.
