Where N2D will be at NXNE 2012

We're less than a week away from the start of NXNE, Toronto's northern sister festival to SXSW: seven days of music (650 bands), interactive and film (40). This year, in addition to meeting up with even more friends and CBC Radio 3 bloggers and listeners, N2DS2W has added some interactive sessions to our "North by" schedule. Here are some of our picks and plans beginning Weds., Jun. 13. We've learned to play things by ear (tres apropros for a music festival, no?), so you'll see multiple bands in some time slots. You can check out all of these bands at CBC Radio 3 and their listing on the NXNE site. If you're attending and haven't already, check out the NXNE new and improved Schedulizer.
