Gearing Up For NXNE – S07E43


I will finally be making the trek to Toronto for NXNE. It’s been mentioned several times that I have not gone to Toronto for quite some time and a slight dislike of the city. I caved in and going to the music festival, which is modeled after SXSW. Due to the previous schedule conflict from Ottawa Dragon Boat Race Festival, it’s an opportunity this year to check what the Toronto music scene offers.
I am also hopeful I can meet the social media/Internet celebs in the form of Nat & Marie. Since they gave me a slight influence to what I do on Twitter and Facebook.
Aside from that, this week’s radio show consisted of bands and musicians attending NXNE and another festival not linked to NXNE. Also played were would be contenders for the 2012 Polaris Music Prize Long List. The Wild 10 Countdown had two new entries, they were Loon Choir and Young Galaxy. At number one for the second week, it’s still Cold Specks.
The live show had Erica joining again and played a bunch of bands who will be at NXNE and Luminato.
Due to some technical difficulties, the live part of the radio show is repaired as there were issues with the quality.
Lastly, don’t forget to check updates on Twitter and Instagram for my activities at NXNE.
The playlist for the June 13th radio show is over at this link.

Update at NXNE – June 16, 2012
I finally made it to Toronto on Friday and it was definitely a great time as I went to CBC Toronto Broadcast Centre for a tour along with CBC Radio 3 fans. It was a surprise to see Jian Gomeshi from Q (If you have me on Instagram, you will know why). I had a chance to interview Grant Lawrence to be aired on Wednesday’s show. Then later on, I had a chance to interview Papermaps and Wendy Versus.
Last, but not least, I got to meet Marie from Nat & Marie as we went for sushi. Unfortunately, Nat wasn’t able to meet up.
