Elliott BROOD warms up for Sasquatch at Traverse

Lots of hype for May 23 show featuring Canadiana-inspired Toronto folk-rock trio Elliott BROOD

Toronto-based folk-rock trio Elliott BROOD (Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet, Stephen Pitkin) is fresh off a Juno Award win in the roots and traditional category for their late-2011 album Days Into Years. They’ll be warming up for an appearance at the Sasquatch Festival in Washington state with a show at Traverse Lounge this Thursday, May 23. BROOD overlays lyrical Canadiana themes with stripped-down traditional string sounds; Days Into Years drew inspiration from a European road trip detour to visit the resting places of Canadian soldiers lost in the great wars. The pollsters are telling us it’ll be hard to beat a rollerderby season opener/burlesque show double-bill on Saturday, but the Times Review isn’t afraid to predict BROOD is a contender for show of the week – or at least weekday. They’re known to dump a sack full of noisemakers on the dance floor to get the crowd into it – and the local Ontarians seem to be excited, so get your tickets early. Elliott BROOD is also scheduled for a school show on May 24.
