Check out The Stogies live and you’ll soon be swinging around all funky like them. I promise you. I did at the El Mocambo on March 2013 (as part of CMW). Wow. They were so good.

I don’t think I’ve ever made it a secret that I have a fondness for raw sounding and energetic garage-style rock, preferably by two-piece bands.

The ROCKthusiast Interviews…The Dirty Names

Toronto is a city where there’s always a lot going on when it comes to live music. Why should folks come out to see you at NXNE? What makes you stand out? And what’s your favourite T.O. venue?

Because it’s the best fucking show you’ll ever see in your life. Plus there will be a lot of girls there. Our favo(u)rite venues are Measure (previously Annex Live) and Cherry Cola’s!

The ROCKthusiast Interviews…Vibonics

One way to heighten your NXNE experience is by seeing weird, cool, different artists. Sometimes it’s at a venue that’s a little off the beaten path. You might even only go because the genre description made you scratch your head enough to wonder what all the fuss is about. Vibonics are all of that. A sound so wide-ranging it’s hard to describe (we just put “Other” as our genre for that reason), performing at a venue (Measure) tucked away in one of Toronto’s most notorious pubbing streets (Brunswick Ave), this group of six guys and gals will undoubtedly rock (and hip hop, and funk, and r&b) your face off.

Being from Toronto, we’ve played a bunch of venues but our favourite might be Sneaky Dee’s, it’s so highly rated in gnarlyness! Playing the Horseshow was also pretty legendary, and 3030 is wicked fun.
