PP Does NXNE 2012 – Sunday’s Picks

It’s almost sad to see NXNE go. My eardrums and liver will be happy for the break, but this festival honestly brings out the best of what Toronto has to offer. There were singalongs in the park, too many bands to see, taxi drivers who let you smoke in their cabs and random characters everywhere.

That being said, I’m only recommending two things today:

12pm-6pm – Hangover Brunch @ Hashtag Gallery

Featuring site favourtites Meanwood and Jumple doing acoustic sets and unlimited food for $10, there’s no reason not to go. Don’t worry, there’s beer too.

9pm-??? – Laugh Sabbath @ Rivoli

This may end up being a legendary show! Featuring most of Toronto’s lesser known/awesome comedians:

MC Chris Locke
James Hartnett
Aaron Eves
Bob Kerr
Sara Hennessey
Tom Henry
Steph Kaliner
Brian Barlow
Nick Flanagan
Adam Christie
Kathleen Phillips
Tim Gilbert


NXNE was our bitch-lover this year. We have loved every second of it. Except for the seconds we didn’t.
