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 …
I hope I don’t “F**k up” this album review? 😛 There is high *literally* anticipation on June 7, 2011. Why? The new album by Toronto’s Fucked Up with what is being hailed as a rock-opera. With eighteen tracks will people want to listen to 1.2 hours of punk and hard rock music?
Went to a interesting show at Raw Sugar Cafe on June 6, 2011. Playing at the show were: Bill Orcutt Black Walls (aka Ken Reaume) Kingdom Shore

Opopo is a electro-dance band from Toronto. I haven’t heard anything from them. 2010 was kind of quiet year for them. At the moment they are a two-piece but will be a full band in the future.
Another post about Austra! I know I can’t help it that her music is so great at the moment!! Gregg Breinberg who is the director of PS22 Chorus sure has good taste in music. Just found out through Austra‘s Facebook page and had a Youtube link of the chorus singing to Austra’s Energy. Energy is …
For those not familiar with the music of Toronto’s Slim Twig who is signed to Paperbag Records. It is basically a one man musician by Max Turnbull. I haven’t seen him live but somewhat heard some buzz about it. Not just a musician, he is also a actor too. Apparently he was in the movie …
