It's that time of year again, when all our local and international talent join forces for a jam-packed, fun-filled, week-long event filled with music, art, film, comedy and interactive for NXNE. As the NXNE homepage boasts, there are over 1000 bands performing, 30 films, 150 comedians, 65 NXNEi sessions with 60 artists... and only 2 days left to take advantage of it all! My favourite part about this time of year isn't the 4am last call that can found throughout local downtown bars, although it is definitely a plus, but the chance to catch some new talent mixed in with old favourites and most importantly the free concert at Dundas Square to close out the week.
Tonight you can look forward to seeing my teenaged favourite Hayden, while a 20's favourite Billy Talent closes out Saturday night, and Sunday night's headliner is Def Jam veteran Ludacris. Maybe the beef between Mr. Bridges and Drake will pick back up while he's on Drake's home turf? (I kid, I kid!)
Whoever you decide to see, make sure you get out there and take advantage of all this great talent! Or just go see T. Swift live at the Rogers Center, if you wanna surround yourself with 13 year old girls in cowboy boots!
