This year’s North By Northeast Music Conference and Fest sees a stellar lineup of LA area bands descend upon Canada’s largest city, the same city that spawned indie darlings like Metric and Broken Social Scene, for a week of music, movie and marketing mayhem.
We checked in with a few of them before they head North for next week’s showcases.
