Published May 24, 2013Those who are attending NXNE in Toronto from June 10 to 16 doubtless already have a jam-packed schedule of concerts to check out, but here's one you might want to consider: Hand Drawn Dracula's label showcase will take place on June 15 at the Garrison, and it features a reunion from Toronto alt-pop act Tangiers, plus a free 7-inch from up-and-comers Beliefs and Greys.
Tangiers released their debut album, Hot New Spirits, in 2003, and their most recent LP was 2005's The Family Myth. Since then, the band's Josh Reichmann has focused on projects like Jewish Legend, Dopes, Bad Tits and Josh Reichmann Oracle Band, while James Sayce is in Bishop Morocco. Regarding the upcoming show, a press release explains that they are reuniting "because playing feels good." This is the original incarnation of the band.
In news also related to the June 15 showcase, Hand Drawn Dracula and the Scion Sessions are releasing a split 7-inch from Beliefs and Greys (who are both performing on the night). This free single will be given away in limited quantities to fans who attend the show. It includes "Long Wings" by Beliefs and "Dodgson" by Greys. The former is a fuzzy slice of shoegaze madness, while the latter is a meaty alt-rocker with lots of guitar squall. Listen to both tracks below.
Other acts on the bill on June 15 includes Doomsquad, Cousins, Dusted, Breeze and Dream Affair.
