And You Thought NXNE Was Just About Seeing Bands

With North by Northeast starting  Monday in Toronto, most people are gearing up to see the 780 bands play throughout the week.  (I know it says 650 in the above banner, but a few more have been added since they desgined it.)  But there’s much more than that going on.

[email protected]:  If you’re going to be traveling to or through Pearson Airport next Wednesday or Thursday (June 13-14), expect to see a number of acts performing in Terminal 1 including the Sadies, Indian Wars, Justin Rutldge and Damhnait Doyle’s The Heartbroken.

NXNE Comedy:  Comedy Records will present five nights of, er, comedy, including Kids the Hall’s Scott Thompson’s new troupe, Mouth Congress.  More details here.

NXNE Film Festival:  This looks really, really good–and there’s too much going on for me to include much of anything here.  Best just go to the NXNE Film Festival site.

NXNE Photography:  There are two exhibitions.  Learn more.

NXNE Record Show: Love vinyl?  Then be at NXNE HQ at the Hyatt Regency on King Street West on Saturday the 16th for a show featuring dealers from across Ontario.  Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning will DJ, too.  Details here.

NXNE Yoga:  Free yoga workships for all!  Good for those hungover mornings.  More here.
