We found this review of the band’s show in Montreal last year and really enjoyed it. We hope you will too.
I discovered The Trews in 2005 when they opened for Robert Plant on his Mighty Rearranger tour. I didn’t know them, and didn’t have the chance to check them out beforehand, but I always try to catch the opening acts. Even though I’m bored 90% of the time, it’s that 1 in 10, or 1 in 20 that blows you away that makes it worthwhile. The minute The Trews had hit the stage, it was clear that their energy, musicianship and songwriting put them in that rare category. I truly believed they were on the verge of hitting the big time. But every time they come around town, they’re always playing tiny places, with a few hundred people in attendance. I’d say that last night at the Belmont there were about 150 people, but the crowd definitely made up for its size with enthusiasm.
