Last Night’s Tweets: NewMusic Ten’s NXNE Showcase

Last night was the first NewMusic Ten NXNE showcase. 5 outstanding Artists: Tara Priya, The Lovelocks, Vibonics, The Cheap Thrills, The Dirty Names. I am deeply grateful for everybody who made this happen…from NXNE, to the bands, to the NewMusic Ten team, to Measure (the venue). Just under 250 people showed up…on a school night no less…to sing, dance, hang out, yam free cake and discover new music. And as grateful as I am I’m equally sorry everybody had to wear pants. Pants are not very rock n roll. Next time…I will fix this! Oh…and yeah, there will be a next year. Yes Guy!


At this year’s @NXNE festival ?@NewMusicTen hosted and arranged a freshtastical @NXNE showcase @MeasureTO in Toronto on June 12, 2013. 5 outstanding bands who should all be selling out and playing the ACC, instead humbly agreed to play our first ever festival showcase. I remain deeply grateful to them, their talents, and their courage to share their music with us and well with anybody who is willing to hear. And of course I deeply appreciate everyone who came out, grabbed a slice of cake, took handfuls of candy when they thought nobody was looking and danced, danced, danced.

Thank you to NXNE for letting us put on this party…can we do it all again next year?
