GOING LIVE: NXNE 2012 – Day Two

“Toronto may be full of hipsters, goth kids and a lot of preppy snobs that live with their moms, but the noise its music community makes feels like home”. These words received via text message during BAD RELIGION’s revival of punk rock in the heart of Toronto equally summarized the Thursday night as every artist in the city – along with North By Northeast – went straight for the jugular. North of the border talent like GREY KINGDOM and UNCLE BAD TOUCH mesmerized, VACATIONER and WHITE RABBITS punched holes in a few hearts and Lee’s Palace was a sweaty hardcore mess – but thanks to PROTEST THE HERO and others – we discovered dropkicking the air is natural.
