Was super busy this week, so I didn't get a chance to go to any of the NXNE small shows. BUT I made sure to catch Portugal. The Man playing at Yonge-Dundas Square last night! Was pretty sweet to see them in a headlining slot like that - hopefully they made lots of new fans (I know a few of my friends are fans of them now)
Awesome! They got so many good bands playing at Yonge-Dundas for free this year, which I think is pretty cool.
A 40 minute set before the final band, The Flaming Lips, is not considered a headlining spot.
Matthew Good played Friday night and he fuckin' killed it. Didn't expect it from him.
Why not? I haven't seen him live yet (keep putting it off) but when I do I expect it will be a great show.
Too bad. I'm not surprised though, lots of people come from all over to experience the festival. And they jack up the prices too, haha. The place I stayed at last August wants quite a bit more, but it's also a 30 second walk to Yonge-Dundas Square.
I still need to see Library Voices. I like what I've heard on their records though.
