NXNE Photos: Women, DDMMYYYY, Best Coast, Volcanoless in Canada, Demon's Claws, Burning Love & The Pack A.D.
For the second night of NXNE 2010, I elected to venue hop around the Queen/Dundas West area to take in some of the more aggressive offerings that the festival has to offer. My evening began at 8pm with an incredible set from Saskatchewan's Volcanoless in Canada at the Gladstone Ballroom as part of the NXEW showcase. While I was tempted to stick around, The Great Hall beckoned and I couldn't resist the urge to check out Montreal's Demon's Claws, Calgary's Women and Los Angeles rock trio Best Coast.
From there I headed up to Dundas to check out Vancouver garage rock duo The Pack A.D. play to a packed and sweaty crowd at the Dakota Tavern. Halfway through their performance I made my way around the corner to catch the second half of DD/MM/YYYY's set at The Garrison. Following DD/MM/YYYY the majority of the crowd cleared out, leaving only the diehards behind to enjoy the chaos and the fury of local hardcore act Burning Love.
