NXNE Review: Paperlions at El Mocambo on June 15th, 2012

I cannot say this enough but I was so psyched to see PEI pop rock band, Paperlions for the first time in 2012. My love toward the quartet continues to grow as I see them live again and again. Their NXNE performance wasn't an exception to the rule.Paperlions knocked down the sweaty El Mocambo on June 15th.

I brought some of my friends who had yet to see Paperlions before to convert them into 'paperlionians', I danced my ass off with their initial tune, Don't Touch the Dial, while totally forgetting anything else but the performance. They continued to blast some of their alluring old tunes from their previous album, Trophies. Yet they didn't forget to tease the audience with their new tunes from their new EP, From Long Creek. One of my favorite songs of the night was My Friend off the EP.-The lead singer, John hit his highest notes during the chorus of the song, leaving the stuck tune syndrome in my head. The 80s infused pop verse with  countless fetching hooks reminded me how talented Paperlions are.My friend, Anton,  isn't easily impressed by most pop bands, but he even admires Paperlions now. Mission accomplished tehehe.

Paperlions again took my heart away! If you missed this show, don't worry! They are playing FREE show on June 29th, Friday at Yonge and Dundas square! Be there or square!!!
