Its June and it means its the start of the summer festival season.
NXNE is happening very fast and this will be my second time attending it.
I had such a fun time last time, maybe this year will be ten times as better.
You go check out what I did last year on here.
This is part one of who I or *whoever is Toronto* to check out at this year’s NXNE. *This might list will change during the night of the festival.*
Not sure if there will be more additional shows on the first night of NXNE.
Here is a list of who to check out on Day 1.
- Cut Throat Kids – 8pm
(Four energetic enthusiastic hungry pop new wavers. Bright infectious stuff, a la Sum 41 and a heapin’ helping of Blondie. Very catchy and tons of fun.)
- The Dirty Dishes – 9pm
(Shoegaze experimental grunge pop foursome gaining traction on The Hype Machine and featured as the number one pick on Passion Pit’s playlist for up-and-coming Boston bands.)
- Still Life Still – 10pm
There is this show I would love to go badly but you need to win it through a contest on AudioBlood.
