While NXNE is known to bring some banging headliners, the line-up is also always stacked with incredible indie acts, and your new favorite bands you’ve never heard of. Too many good tunes. So much to hear. While I’m currently a tired zombie, I can state that it was totally worth it. Here’s what I saw…

Bernice sang quirky tunes the told tales such as that of a black bears stuck in a tree.
Ginla got spacey.
Jessica Pratt sang for the rain.
