North by Northeast Fest
The Music Festival: Indie isn't a style of music – it's the only way for artists and audiences to connect directly. At NXNE, more than 500 indie performers rock the fans, agents, talent buyers, label reps, promoters and press who come to hear the best of what's next. Whether your passion is rock, punk, folk, hip-hop, dance, metal, roots, electronic, R&B, alternative, or something way outside, you need to be at NXNE. Acts include Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, The Besnard Lakes, The French Kicks, These New Puritans, Carina Round, Afterhours, ok city ok and Semi Precious Weapons.
Among hundreds of amazing showcases, one of this year's key events is The MuseBox NXNE Showcase on Saturday, June 14th at The El Mocambo which will feature Paper Lions, Kakkmaddafakka, The I Spies, The Two Koreas, The High Dials, We Are Wolves and Black Diamond Bay. - http://www.nxne.com
