After selling out gigs on home soil, Toronto-based rockers foster cult following in foreign markets
Colin MacDonald quotes The Dandy Warhols to explain his relationship to rock ’n’ roll: “When it’s good it’s fun and when it’s bad it’s funny,” MacDonald says from Nashville, where his group The Trews is performing.
The Toronto-based rock band has albums that regularly go gold in Canada and has opened for stadium-size acts, including The Rolling Stones, Kid Rock, Robert Plant, Guns N’ Roses and Kiss.
Farther afield, the band is still trying to find its audience.
