NXNE 2007 - A few highlights

North By North East is the largest music festival in Canada. Hundreds of bands, independent and majors alike, gather for the 3 day festival.

Between the many parties, and bottles of pink champagne, I did actually get out to see a few bands, and below are a few I feel are worth checking out.

First Place goes to a Toronto band called Public who played a set at C'est What. How cliched is it that the best show was the last show we saw.

Second Place goes to We Are The Take, and they are also the worst photos, so sorry guys.

I've seen them before and have liked them for awhile, so I guess this isn't really a surprize pick.

Third place goes to Simon Wilcox, who. despite the name, is a dynamic and gorgeously girly singer songwriter.

Not officially a NXNE showcase, but rating a Fourth Place spot is a band from my youth, LOVERBOY!

They atually have a new album coming out soon, and they mixed a few new jewels in amongst the old standbys like Working For The Weekend.
