The Trews Impress Orlando

The Trews Photo Gallery – Social, Orlando

Knowing I was headed out to review Carbon Leaf last week, a trusted friend made it clear that I needed to get to The Social early to catch The Trews. The Canadien quartet have been making compelling music for two decades yet had somehow failed to really hit my radar. Now that I have had a chance to catch them live, I realize that I’ve got some catching up to do. This band is damn good.

Hey Mercedes – Everything’s Fine at The Social

IMG_2351Hey Mercedes are a punktastic, jolly good time of a band from the Chicago / Milwaukee area. Raked from the ashes of the understated Braid, the band formed in 1999 and released their most notable album Everynight Fire Works in October of 2001. The band released one more album, Loses Control, two years later and called it quits in 2005. They burned fast and bright, and left some really great material behind, great enough for a 15 year anniversary tour of the Everynight Fire Works record.

When I was offered the chance to go see them at The Social on Saturday, I eagerly accepted.
