Fare thee well, New Grenada

One of my "first favorite" bands "on the scene" was this shredded up shunt of sunshine muck called New Grenada. They were an ideal blend of pop and punk - an experiment of stirring sugar with strychnine. They had a lot of heart and they howled it all out for much of the 2000's, releasing a half-dozen recordings until finally fizzilng into a bit of an amorphous existence through last year. Well... the last chapter is wrapping up - and the group plays their final show (reuniting with former/longtime member Shawn Knight) for Saturday's Lager House performance.

The Cold Wave opens up and the band will have a DVD of live footage from their 10 year "reign of terror."


Also goin on around...
