Published Oct 04, 2010Montreal's noise kids on the block, Grand Trine, played a jam-packed, sold-out show at Casa del Popolo. In spite of some technical difficulties and a broken bass amp, the band sailed through their set unfazed and put on a short but sweet - not to mention sweaty - show. Grand Trine ripped through old favourites like "I Am a Magnet" while introducing a fresh direction with new songs like "End Times" and "Youthanize Me." The trio even paid homage to the Sonics with a cover of "Strychnine" that made the crowd go wild. It should come as no surprise that the Grand Trine show sold out - these guys play good old-fashioned rock'n'roll, which is exactly what the doctor ordered.
