Teen Anger NXNE, Toronto, ON June 17 to 21, 2009

Toronto group Teen Anger throw down old school punk riffs with a bit of twang on the side. The quartet played a solid set in the horribly laid out Silver Dollar Room. The lead singer did his best Ian Curtis moves while the female bass player rocked out in a leopard print leotard. The crowd was game but didn't seem visibly interested until the singer wandered down into the crowd to try and coax some animation out of them, They quit just as the crowd was peaking in either a brilliant reading of their audience or a lack of more material.
