NXNE has come and gone, and as a music fan, I’ve always been interested in other people’s opinions of the event. What were there standouts? What did they think of shows? How was their overall experience? I’m always interested. Another thing I am constantly intrigued by is efficiency. Maybe it’s because it is a part of my real life job, so when I saw Chart Attack‘s coverage of NXNE, I thought it was undoubtedly a perfect marriage of the two: Feelings + Efficiency. Their ten words reviews reminded me of Buzzfeed articles, but with even less words. Ever so inspired, I decided to also do this for a few bands I saw. Since I’m competitive, I decided to do 11 words to Chart’s 10 words. With an additional 10% more content, I hope that I can further convey how I felt at these shows.
Roseville Band, Dakota Tavern
Rollicking Four Piece Welsh band rocks out with 90’s sounding anthems
Our Founders, Great Hall
Empty Great Hall, not empty sound. Sleepy synth sounds pleases ear.
Brazos, Great Hall
Austin indie pop band had bass stolen, also stolen: our hearts.
Villagers, Great Hall
Irish folk band starts half hour late, tells stories, sound great.
