Where N2DS2W will be at NXNE 2013

Something old, something new, something tomorrow and something at 2:00... that about sums up our music schedule for NXNE 2013. While we always make seeing bands we haven't seen before a priority, it's tough to pass up friends and those that never disappoint. So here's where we're planning to be. Bands with a * we've never seen before. We have a few suggestions for you, too. Also, keep checking the NXNE schedule; they're still adding bands.

Thurs., Jun. 13

Live in Bellwoods (4 - 7 p.m.): We're hoping to catch Maylee Todd; other artists scheduled to play include Kalle Matson and Olenka & The Autumn Lovers. Be sure to see the lineups for the rest of NXNE.

8:00 p.m.: *Inlet Sound, Cameron House, 408 Queen (near Spadina).
Tip: if folk rock isn't your thing but Broken Social Scene is, Brendan Canning plays The Hoxton at the same time.

9:00 p.m.: *Wordburglar, Sneaky Dee's, 431 College at Bathurst.
We also recommend: Loon Choir at the Drake Hotel, Shred Kelly at the Supermarket and Stella Ella Ola at the Silver Dollar.

10:00 p.m.: D-Sisive, Sneaky Dee's.
Tip: Fellow R3 bloggers can't stop talking about the fun garage rock of The Mouthbreathers, playing at 9:45 at the Gladstone. They're in Detroit Jul. 17.

11:00 p.m.: *Coeur de Pirate, The Great Hall, 1087 Queen (near Ossington).
Tip: NXNE 2011 buzz band BRAIDS plays the Comfort Zone.

12:00 a.m.: *We Are Wolves, Wrongbar, 1279 Queen (west of Dufferin).

Fri., Jun. 14

7:00 p.m.By Divine Right, St. James Gazebo; regrettably, we can't attend this show due to a previous commitment, but we can't recommend it enough. We saw BDR in February (show review here), and it's still a top show of the year. Their new album is amazing.

8:00 p.m.: *Wildlife, Mod Club Theatre, 722 College (just east of Ossington).
Tip: There's been some buzz about AroarA, playing the Silver Dollar.

9:00 p.m.: *The Crackling, Supermarket, 268 Augusta (off College between Spadina and Bathurst).
Tip: Imaginary Cities follows Wildlife at the Mod Club.

10:00 p.m.: *Pat LePoidevin, Free Times Cafe, 320 College (between Spadina and Bathurst). One word: FIII-YER.
Tip: We thought we'd have a tough decision as Shooting Guns is at the Hideout at the same time, but they're playing the Phog Lounge three days before. Win!

11:00 p.m.: *Pick a Piper, Comfort Zone, 480 Spadina (near College).
Help us decide: Superfriendz at The Great Hall instead?

12:00 a.m.: Sloan, The Great Hall, 1087 Queen (near Ossington).
 Help us decide: Should we give The Danks another chance at The Hideout?

1:00 a.m.: *Odonis Odonis, The Garrison, 1197 Dundas (near Ossington).
Tip: The Luyas will be at Sneaky Dee's.

2:00 a.m.: We Are The City, The Rivoli, 332 Queen (near Spadina). We hope we can stay awake, because we love this band.

Sat., Jun.15

9:00 p.m.: Gregory Pepper & His Problems, The Silver Dollar, 486 Spadina (near College). N2DS2W was barely two weeks old when we first saw Gregory Pepper.
Tip: There's a great lineup at The Danforth Music Hall: Northcote, Paper Lions, Dinosaur Bones and Wintersleep.

10:00 p.m.: *Beliefs, The Garrison, 1197 Dundas (near Ossington).
 Help us decide: Should we stick around at the Silver Dollar for Michael Rault instead?
Tip: Boxer the Horse at Sneaky Dee's; one of our top shows from NXNE 2012.

11:00 p.m.: Dusted, The Garrison, 1197 Dundas (near Ossington). Worth a second show.

12:00 a.m.: *Del Bel, Creatures Creating, 822 Dundas (just west of Bathurst).

1:00 a.m.: *Hot Panda, Sneaky Dee's, 431 College at Bathurst. THE show we're most looking forward to at NXNE this year.
Tip: Pretty sure everyone else will be at Fucked Up at the 'Shoe.

Thanks for the comment! We are definite fans of The Danks, so will give this show an extra star.

Sloan live are a shadow of their former selves IMHO. They are legends but I tink it's the Danks all the way.
