With hundreds of events in only a few days, it is overwhelming to decide what bands to see at NXNE. We’ve made it easier for you, and picked our top five for each day. Here are our picks for Wednesday, June 18th.
1. The Wayo (R&B/JAZZ)
The Drake Hotel Underground – Wednesday, June 18 @ 12 AM
A genre-crossing group from Halifax with roots in hip hop, jazz, soul, post-punk, and R&B. Formed in 2012, The WAYO has quickly garnered attention and affection within their hometown music scene.
2. Technical Kidman (EXPERIMENTAL POP)
Baltic Avenue – Wednesday, June 18 @ 10 PM
3. Dearly Beloved (PUNK/GARAGE)
Wrongbar – Wednesday, June 18 @ 11 PM
Greys are a loud rock band from Toronto. They’re against pretentious biographies, preferring for listeners to instead come to their own conclusions. Occasionally they throw amps off of roofs.
5. Caitlin Harnett (FOLK)
Dakota Tavern – Wednesday, June 18 @ 11 PM // Free Times Cafe – Thursday, June 19 @ 10 PM
