Bands on NXNE that Cristina and I touched on:
Men Without Hats: Love them. Can't believe they are still around. Basically cannot wait to hear them play their big two hit songs, "The Safety Dance" ("because if your friends don't dance, then they're no friends of mine!") and "Pop Goes the World".
Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield: I haven't seen either bands (Lemonheads or Juliana Hatfield Three), so I am definitely excited to see them for the first time. Lara claims that Dando brings a sort of time machine with him: to the year 1992.
The Pharcyde: Cristina seems more excited about this 90s hip hop band, who, to be honest, I was never into hip hop - but if they are playing, I'll check them out!
Art Brut: I think they're really, really funny. They also love their comic books (they have a fascination with American comics, because they're from the UK). I've seen them before, but I'll love to see them again. See below for more Art Brut dates:
6/16 - Cleveland at Beachland Ballroom
6/17 - Toronto at Mod Club
6/18 - Montreal at Il Motore
6/20 - Boston at Brighton Music Hall
6/21 - Hoboken at Maxwells
6/22 - DC at Black Cat
6/23 - Brooklyn at Music Hall Williamsburg
8/27 - Los Angeles at Sunset Junction Festival
Peelander-Z: Recently added to the bill. They're playing a few dates, one of which I cannot make it to. It'll be good to see them again.
Washington: Also a late addition (she wasn't on the initial lineup), but I'll finally get a chance to see her. She canceled her Minneapolis show, so this will be my first time seeing her in Canada. First song of the show is Washington's "Sunday's Best".
Click "read more" to see the entire schedule for NXNE (or head over to nxne.com). So many of the bands starts at 9pm, so it's definitely not an all-day party as far as it compared to SXSW.
Two interesting Peelander-Z projects coming up, including Peewonder-Z, the sister band of Peelander-Z, and TheBlackCherry, a side project of Peelander-Green (aka Cherry) and Peelander-Black.
Both Peewonder-Z and TheBlackCherry are playing at Death By Audio in New York on June 9th, details on fb.com
Also, Australia's The Panda Band has return with their single, "The Fix", which is available as a free download. Second song of the show is Panda Band's "The Fix".
