Who: Grimskunk
From: Toronto, ON
Where: Bovine Sex Club
When: Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Total Score: 8.6/10

[starreviewmulti id=3 tpl=20]

Style: Political Ska-Punk. A very diverse, but coherent sound, going from ska breakdowns to horror-styled keys to Skindred-sounding groove.

Crowd: The crowd was glued to the stage. I’m surprised that the mosh-pit didn’t break out.

Sex appeal/image: Though Grimskunk have an amazing energy and a real message behind their music, the stage at Bovine was not big enough for them. With the keyboards front and center, it was hard for the guys to express themselves to their full ability. Franz Schuller (rhythm guitar/vocals) was sitting down for the whole set, because of health issues, but that only made him look like some Rastafarian messiah.

Memorable song/moment: I enjoyed the whole set tremendously and wish to see them take over the world.
