NXNE trailer rebrands iconic Toronto landmarks

Posted by Aubrey Jax / April 30, 2014

NXNE video 2014NXNE have released a slick new video along with their third line up announcement, where punks grab a slice at Odonis Odonis, Mac DeMarco owns his own cab company, and sad Toronto music fans pick up a copy of LOW Magazine every Thursday. The Pizza Underground will never be a band I'll care about, but I would hit up the restaurant. As you get hyped up for this year's fest, look out for Perpect Pussy's pet shop (aw) and a big money take-over that just might save Honest Ed's from the chopping block (if only).

FYI to NXNE - the song in the video would have been better if it was by Toronto's Mas Aya. Just a friendly note for next year.

Lineup additions from today include Pusha T, Jacques Greene, Future Islands, Joel Plaskett Emergency, Autre Ne Veut (be still my heart), Xiu Xiu, Evian Christ, HSY, and Army Girls. NXNE also announced a new viewing space at Yonge-Dundas Square for wristband and badge holders; Sleigh Bells, St. Vincent, Spoon, and Juicy J are among artists performing at Y&DS, which should ease the pain of at least some of Toronto's M.I.A. fans.

NXNE 2014 runs from June 13-2 in Toronto.

People still care about M.I.A.?

CMW is a waste of money anyways. Why should you have to buy a wristband and then pay on top of that to see any of the "headlining" shows? There's going be a lot of angry people... again.

Here is a thought; don't go.
(Except for Television, should be an excellent show.)

They should; she's better than most of the pop stars out there now, and unlike most of them, she actually has something to say about the world (or at least she did on her first two albums.)

As for CMW, everything bad about it has been already said; http://torontoist.com/2013/03/dear-canadian-music-week-its-not-us-its-you/
