NXNE 2014: We get caught mapping

NXNE is Toronto's music, film, comedy, art and interactive festival.
We're pretty sure you're not going to NXNE for The Pizza Underground. So who are you going to see?

Big surprise, our focus as always will be on Canadian indie bands we haven't seen, and some we can't resist seeing again. If you're still working on your schedulizing, we thought we'd help out with a regional round-up. We've starred the bands we've seen before and recommend. You can see our personal picks when we post our annual "Where we'll be at NXNE" next.

You can check out any of these bands by visiting the NXNE artists page.
