 Stoner rock trio Crimson Roots were on stage first with a lot of big guitar riffs, wah wah drenched solos, an excerpt from the Power Rangers theme and most of the music from their debut CD. There were some cool basslines and solid drumming throughout. They sounded like a cross between Blue Cheer and Alice in ChainsTrophy Wife

Following that, instrumental rock trio Trophy Wife, whose slogan on Myspace is ‘putting the mental back in instrumental,’ did just that.

They had a lot of ‘holy smokes’ moments as in ‘I can’t believe he can play that well.’
They started slowly but loudly and quickly picked up the tempo and the energy while maintaining ear blistering levels of volume.

 It’s tough to keep instrumentals interesting, but Trophy Wife was up to the job.
They played a medley of impressive familiar instrumentals including Hocus Pocus by Focus and Rush’s YYZ.
