NXNE 2010: Who to check out on June 16th (part 1)

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.

Velvet Underground:

  • 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.)

[Also playing are Ashley from Toronto, julia set generator from Toronto and The Wilderness from Toronto.]

The Garrison:

  • 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.)

[Also playing are Brave/Deeds from Toronto and The Grass from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia]

Mod Club Theatre:

  • Still Life Still – 10pm
  • (Seen this band live various times and are a great band to catch live. Also they are on Arts & Crafts label.)
    [Also playing at the Mod Club Theatre are The Blue Van from Denmark, Ko from Toronto

There is this show I would love to go badly but you need to win it through a contest on AudioBlood.
