It’s June and it means the start of the summer festival season.
NXNE is happening very fast and this will be my third time attending it.
I always have a fun time attending NXNE.
You can go check out what I did on previous NXNE coverage on here.
This is part one of who *whoever is in Toronto* to check out at this year’s NXNE. *This list will change during the night of the festival.*
Here is a list of who to check out on June 15, 2011.
Already I am too overwhelmed on planning who to see!
- The Rivoli (Part of Nevado Records showcase) – Loom
I didn’t know it was Brooke Manning who I saw 2 years ago with a new name act.
Absolutely stunning vocal led ambiance which wraps you in layers of droning, glacial beauty until Brooke Manning’s voice sounds as from the deepest, warmest dream you’ve ever had.

It will be either:
- The Garrison – Pat Jordache
- The Drake Hotel Underground – Monogold
Recently named “Best Avant-Indie Band in NYC” by Deli Magazine, their Antlers style songs are layered and majestic and likely have therapeutic powers.
- The Garrison – Lower Dens
- The Rivoli – Meligrove Band
- The Dakota Tavern – Rob Moir
A band from Baltimore USA, music is fuzzy guitar and bass waves.
All I can say is that they are great to see live!
Listen to Racing To Shimmering Lights
Looking for something acoustic folk alternative check him out live at one of my favorite venues.
It’s going to be a toss between:
- The Garrison – The Postelles
- Rancho Relaxo – The Love Machine
A indie pop rock band from New York City. Who wouldn’t want to see this band live?
Show Toronto what you got!! That Ottawa got what it takes!
Listen to Love Is On Your Side
This is going to be very hard because two of my favorite bands are playing the same time.
Both put on an amazing set!
- The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern – Parlovr
- The Rivoli – Library Voices
I’ve seen them live various times and never get disappointed!
Listen to Hell, Heaven
It’s either going to be:
- The Rivoli – “Special Guest”
- The Garrison – Pick A Piper
- The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern – We Are Wolves
My guest is either Yukon Blonde or Golden Dogs
So this is what to expect on June 15th at NXNE.
Don’t forget! If you wanna, please say hi to me!!
