NXNE 2016: Where I’m At

Ghostface Killah

NXNE is a whole lot smaller and a little bit stranger this year.

The reason’s pretty obvious: if you’ve been paying attention at all there’s a music festival war going on in Ontario and sometimes you need to pull back to survive. So now there are less bands at NXNE, less venues and the whole concept of hopping from club to club has been mostly dismantled.

There is, however, still good music to be seen.

Below is my prospective where-to-go list (and yes, I’m aware this post is going up on a Friday and is therefore half obsolete, but screw you):
