I've been having a blast during the first two days at NXNE. What about you? It was crazy at Yonge and Dundas Square last night for Bad Religion! Were you there?
Lug is still offering a FREE claw machine and photo booth at Yonge and Dundas Square throughout the festival. Make sure to come by to enjoy some free swags!
Let's keep the party going for three more days. Here are some of my recommendations of the night.
Eight and A Half- Yonge and Dundas Square at 7:30p.m
The former members of Broken Social Scene and the Stills tagged together to generate arty synth-driven pop tunes. It's a free show at YDS.
FU- Bovine Sex Club at 10p.m
I bumped into this Japanese alt rock band, FU, ( meaning from unconsciousness) at the NXNE registration on Wednesday. They are the nicest dudes that I've met during the festival! They are the reminiscent of 90's opera-rock. They are the only Japanese band to participate in NXNE this year. Make sure to check out the Samurai rock tonight.
Future History- The Cameron House at 1a.m
Toronto based rock trio, Future History is one of the most underrated local bands in the city. Their detailed arrangement in their rootsy sounds are something that I would love to see in person.
Yamantaka//Sonic Taitan- The Garrison at Midnight
Polaris Music Awards 2012 long list was just announced yesterday and it was not surprising to see Toronto-Montreal based 'Noh-wave' band, Yamntaka// Sonic Titan on the list.
