Are you ready? Because we’re ready for you! NXNE is on and starts tonight. We’re going easy on you with just one show tonight. Well, starting with the scorching hot Leeds rockers The Eagulls has very little do with going easy. Last time the Eagulls played Northby at Yonge Dundas Square in 2014 they almost melted the stage.
Post-punk or just straight ahead punk this frenzied five piece has a bad attitude that has seen them create social media madness. Pitchfork says, “There’s more to these melodic punks than their fuck the world attitude.”
We think somebody listened to their parents’ record collection because there’s tons of 80s and 90s influences here. Cure anyone? At times morose, other times majestic, swirling guitars and a dubious attitude drive their irresistible sound over the top.
The Effens and Several Futures are brave enough to share the stage with these UK bad asses. Tickets are going fast but you can still buy on-line or take your chances at the door.
Several Futures are on at 9 pm, Effens at 10 pm and Eagulls at 11 pm.
Tickets are only $14.50. There won’t be any “peaceful, easy feelin” to these Eagulls!
