The Trews bring a house party for sold out Lethbridge show

 The Trews know how to party as they did at Average Joes, Nov. 22 at a sold out show with the Glorious Sons.

The Trews brought 10 some years of hits to life for the enthusiastic fans, most of them pretty women clustered at the front of the stage, but they also played a few songs off their new self titled album including the punkish “New King” and the more laid back anthem “Age of Miracles.”

 They showed off their rocking side as well as their more laid back, sensitive acoustic material.

The sold out crowd sang along with most of the hits and literally “ Sang their Heart” out on  the song of that name, which was just written for a singing along to.
Highlights included “Paranoid Freak ” the new single “ Fair is Fair”  and the new song “65 Flowers” about Cystic Fibrosis which lead guitarist Angus and frontman Colin MacDonald played as a sweet acoustic number.

 They tossed in acoustic numbers throughout the set including “Highway of Heroes” which came near the end of the show.

 By the end of the  show, everybody soloed, and the Nova Scotia born band turned Average Joes into a giant kitchen party as they invited the the Glorious Sons on stage for a fantastic jam on “Poor Ol Broken Hearted Me” and the Glorious Sons “Mama” which featured a wicked keyboard solo and lots of energy.
