NXNE 2013

Overheard at NXNE 2013

Stumbling around late on any given night, you're bound to hear some ridiculous things. During the week-long NXNE festival, though, there is a whole other breed of conversation you'll have the pleasure of overhearing. While there have already been some mid-fest compilations of great overheard lines ("You're like Bob Dylan with a uterus"), we've rounded up the top tweets and our (sadly) personal experiences for your reading pleasure. Some of it features sex, some of it features music, but much of it features beer-addled brains and loose tongues.

My personal favourites were conversations. Case in point, this exchange at the Bill Orcutt and Chris Corsano show at Double Doubleland:

Bill Orcutt: "Toronto rules!"
Random: "Toronto has rules!"

Or this back and forth outside a show:

Strange man to woman: "Can I touch your ass?"
Woman: "No."
Strange man: "Why is there so much ass in this city?"

I was, however, treated to a few solid one-liners. Case(s) in point:

Dan Deacon: "We're going to get two people to come dance inside the circle. This girl here, and the guy with the hat and the astonished look on his face."

And...

"That's so hipster you can't even Google search it."

Here are some of the best things our Twitter followers overheard at NXNE 2013.
