NXNE 2013 Reviews And Photos

Mickey Avalon

Mickey Avalon

The 2013 edition of NXNE has finally ended and I can say with a certain sense of shock that I didn’t end up developing my annual case of paralyzing bad back from it (though I do appear to have a cold).

Over the course of NXNE I ended up seeing the following acts: Brendan Croskerry, Calexico, Santiago x The Natural, Sunfields, Brendan Canning, Wordburglar, D-Sisive, Elaquent, Sunclef + Peroff, By Divine Right, Hayden, The National, Blowfly, Brave Little Toaster, CTZNSHP, Weaves, The Lytics, Catl, White Lung and Mickey Avalon.

Some of whom I wrote up about in the NXNE wrap story for Huffington Post Music Canada. You can read that by clicking here.

I also took some photos of varying quality. Check those out below.

NXNE 2013 Best Bets: Blowfly, Mickey Avalon And More



Today the NXNE music festival properly begins and with it a million bands will descend on Toronto to perform.

I haven’t quite figured out how to fold time and space yet, so there are many conflicts, but here are the Best Bets — including the particularly exciting raunch double-shot of Blowfly and Mickey Avalon — I’m going to try to check out over the next five days.

For the first time in a long time I’ll be relatively untethered, so I’m also willing to deviate from this course if there’s bribery (hint).
