This weekend the NXNE Festival happens in Toronto, which is a city that happened a long time ago in Canada. We’re heading up and we aim to make our mark. There will be two shows:
- Friday, 14 June, at Lee’s Palace. We go on at midnight. “Zero dark zero” is how military folk might say it.
- Saturday, 15 June, at the Yonge and Dundas Square Stage, at 3 p.m. — “Fifteen hundred hours.”
That’s two shows in just 16 hours, start to finish! No big deal if the shows were mediocre and forgettable, but these will be the two Shows Of The Year in North America.* (*as determined by a poll)
Congratulations to us! And congratulations to you, if you live in or near Toronto. And sincerest condolences if you do not. And a heartiest welcome to those who intend to come out! And heartfelt understanding to those who can not attend due to a death in the family or other tragedy. And a pox and damnation unto those who will simply skip the shows due to laziness or having other plans.
