Grounders La Sala Rossa, Montreal QC September 30
Toronto's Grounders seemed elated at their Sala Rossa gig - the venue was inundated with many of their hometown friends and fans, having trekked all the way to Montreal just for the show. In fact, watching the band pump out their uppity flower punk, you kind of got the feeling that the charming foursome are always chipper. They enthusiastically danced along to their own music, were enormously gracious to their audience, and even when a banjo was having technical difficulties, they continued on with the equipment that did work and with zero complaining. Let's face it, happy musicians are a rare breed, so high-fives all around for Grounders and their handsome smiles and catchy pop hooks.
