NXNE

This year at NXNE was one of the best! It doesn't take a lot to fill up your days, a mere few great bands will do just that.  I was early enough for every show, and didn't get the dreaded capacity lock out I experienced many times last year, even with a priority pass. I had the best spot in the house at Lee's Palace to see Goat & Pissed Jeans who were both a few of the major highlights of the festival for me. Also seeing Metz twice and Swans at Young and Dundas was exceptionally fantastic. 

There were a variety of awesome events at Edward Day gallery over the weekend. The Pizza Underground Pizza party offered free pizza, Velvet Underground covers with lyrics about pizza as well as a 5 foot pizza on stage definitely giving 'za the love it deserves. 

The People Put Out party on sunday had a great lineup and a local indie label market. My longtime pal Ivy Lovell was there selling various prints and great amounts of beer were had by all who desired.
