The Update | Canadian Rockers in Region; Arms Museum to Reopen; Kennywood Jobs

Critically acclaimed Canadian rock band The Trews will perform at Craft House in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

Tickets can be purchased HERE.

The band’s seventh and latest album, “Wanderer,” is easily the band’s most accomplished.

The album was made during the pandemic when touring was not possible.

“This is a really strong rock record from start to finish,” said guitarist John-Angus MacDonald. “Every song was mulled over extensively.”
