Edward Day Gallery (952 Queen West) has a pretty special honour this year: hosting NXNE’s 20th birthday bash on Wednesday (June 20).
The parties don’t stop there, though. The venue, dubbed NXNE Festival Village, has shows on Thursday night and is the site of plenty of daytime all-ages fun for the duration of the festival – including a pizza party (with free pizza!) with Macaulay Culkin’s comedy rock band the Pizza Underground on Friday (June 20), 10:30 am to 1 pm.
The real highlight comes on the last day of the fest. On Sunday (June 22), People Put Out Productions, Sonic Boom and NXNE present the open-air DIY Label And Art Fair (also all ages), featuring a barbecue, a record swap, art for sale and all-day performances (including one by local loud-rockers Greys).
