Published May 17, 2011Since March, Toronto music conference and festival NXNE has been unveiling info on a number of events that will hit the city between June 13 and 19. We've already learned that a number of talented acts will hit stages across Hogtown, including such acts as Devo, OFF! and Twin Shadow, and we also know that some cool documentaries screening during the event. But sweetening the deal even further, organizers have announced another wave of killer bands that will join in on the fun.
