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?
Thanks to the nice people at Sony Music. I received two copies of The Vaccine‘s 10″ vinyl EP in the mail. The EP includes three tracks which are “Post Break-Up Sex”, “Wreckin’ Bar (Ra Ra Ra)”, and “Blow It Up”
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

The first time I saw Belgrave live was at the Raw Sugar Cafe on Sept 4, 2010. Now the Montreal band has finally dropped their self-titled EP. For those that don’t know the band consist of sibling/cousins of: Trevor Boucher Liam Boucher Michael Bufo Catherine Cere Jonathan Powter
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.
This seems to be a love theme coming from New York’s Hooray For Earth. Somewhat way behind on the ongoings of Hooray For Earth. I saw them live for the first time and just blew me away on January 18, 2011. I was unaware that they will be dropping their full-length “True Loves” LP on …
Anyone remembers the Toronto band Spiral Beach? It’s sad that the band parted ways. Dorian Wolf is now with Austra. Airick Woodhead is doing his own thing called Doldrums. Doldrums is far different from the Spiral Beach days. The music is more on the experimental weird dancey pop sound. Have a listen to his mixtape.
