Not only will this be the first show with Raf Katigbak on drums but our friend Cabral Jacobs is going to join us on saxophone. So it's going to be a set with two new members. Cabral is going to play on 1/2 of our 12" for Divorce and also on the 7" for Almost Ready. We've invited him to play as many dates as he wants with us.

Casa Del Popolo is one of our favorite places to play. And they haven't been able to have shows for the past few months due to some permit problems.. But they've done some renovations and now they are ready to re-open! So this is kind of a special night for all the reasons mentioned.

Review of 1st tape re-issue

Ottawa Express July 30th/09:
4 1/2 *'s out of 5.

Montreal quartet* Grand Trine have quickly risen to the top of the new cream jar of local now-out-there bands, as much for their nutso live show as for their blasts of freedom rock...*?

Okay so we just found out we are playing an awesome Pop Montreal festival show at Casa(which will be re-opened!) which I can't announce yet. I am excited also because we'll get artist passes and then I can go see Diamanda Galas, Butthole Surfers, Thee Oh Sees, Chain + The Gang, Faust, Teenage Jesus + The Jerks, Os Mutantaes, The Intellegence for free! Seriously the lineup for this year's festival is insane. Beyond amazing. And also we are headed back to Halifax (this time with Dead Wife) for Divorce Records showcase at the Halifax Pop Explosion festival. We are going to hit Quebec City again and maybe one other place (not Fredericton). And Toronto for a Wavelength Series show a few weeks before that. We'll have our first slab of vinyl ready for those shows.
