The Weakerthans’ frontman John K. Samson breaks free from the rigors of academia with “When I Write My Master’s Thesis.”
Hailing from the Best Coast, er…West Coast, surf punk sisters Jennifer and Jessica Calvin delivered their lo-fi sound to NXNE fans during Toronto’s most notable indie music festival. Although the sisters of Bleached draw serious comparisons to Bethany Consentino, we can’t get our hands on enough California fuzz pop bands these days, so the more the merrier!

Plants and Animals have come a long way since the release of their self-titled debut in 2002. Although the Montreal-based trio initially began as a fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants instrumental project, the band has called upon new sounds (and voices) over the past decade to create what they refer to as “post-classic rock.” Plucking inspiration from Mick Jagger, Arcade Fire, and Hunter S. Thompson, Plants and Animals wowed NXNE fans at the Yonge-Dundas Square stage.
