A Wrap-Up To NXNE 2014 Edition – S09E40

leave a comment »

NXNE 2014 Banner

It was an exciting weekend being in Toronto and attending NXNE. What I forgot to mention in the previous entry that the festival celebrated its 20th anniversary this year and it’s a become a major hub for the Toronto music scene and abroad.

Onto the events I went to on Saturday.Β The first was attending the unofficial CBC Radio 3 Fan Picnic in Trinity-Bellwoods Park. This year, Grant Lawrence was unable to host it as he’s busy with the CBC Beetle Roadtrip Sessions. In his place was the lovely Lana Gay. The performers for this year were the Ottawa band, Loon Choir and Vancouver’s Skye Wallace.Β It was a fun time and good to see people that I know that were at the picnic.

After the picnic, I headed off to the Microsoft Surface Cafe. It’s a coffee shop where the company offered a first look of the Surface Pro 3. I was there for the Surface Harmony with the 2014 Polaris Music Prize Long List nominee, The Darcys. Jason Couse performed several tracks at the coffee shop and chatted along with bandmate, Wes Marksell about their musical upbringing and other things. It was quite an intimate setting and great to surprise them in showing up for the support.

It’s June – Radio Show: Loon Choir, Graham Wright & Gianna Lauren Interviews – S05.2E09

It’s June and I am almost nearing the end of the blogging series but there’s a couple of more week of new materials for my radio show. To start off, it’s a first of sorts as I used the Apple iPad to play music tracks over on the Ottawa airwaves. Cutting edge technology to say the least. I had the opportunity to air the Loon Choir interview, which was recorded in late April but their full length album was not released until May. I had to hold out until the album was released.
The playlist is posted up on CKCU’s Playlist site, here is the link.
You can listen to the radio show by pressing play.

The Wild 5 Countdown will be posted on a new page at this link.

Kudos go to CHUO’s Now Playing as the host has set up a blog for her radio show. I guess I got some “competition” as we play the same kind of music and interviews. It was nice to hang out for the June 2nd inaugural show in a non-speaking role but using the iPad.

Radio Show for June 9, 2010 – The Graham Wright Interview

Two hours of exciting music from Canadian independent artists and bands. I was happy to play new tracks from Black Mountain, Meligrove Band and Hot Hot Heat.
It was an opportunity to do a short interview with Tokyo Police Club’s Graham Wright. It was originally recorded in late March but aired it on Wednesday because his band’s 2nd album, Champ got released. It was fitting to air it as I still like “Breakneck Speed.”
Also on the show were the Wild 5 Countdown and talking about the 2010 FIFA World Cup Soccer in South Africa. Played the ever famous Three Lions but it’s the 2010 version.
The playlist for the radio show is at this link.

Here is the June 9th edition of my radio show. Press play to listen.

It’s jammed pack show with the two interviews. The Luyas was recorded in late April. The one from Bands Undone is a new one. I had the opportunity to check out formerly from Ottawa and now based to Halifax, Gianna Lauren and joining her is Field Assembly. They are embarking a train tour across Canada. They have a blog for their cross Canada tour at this link [via Tumblr].
