NXNE Review: Human Human, Teen Violence and Naked People, June 15

Posted on by lauren in Concerts, North By Northeast | Leave a comment

  I thought I had a packed schedule this night, but it turns out I had only chosen bands to see at 11pm, since I was tired from traveling all day to farmland, I figured that was okay since I was starting super early.

I was sick Wednesday night, and while I shouldn’t have gone out in public infecting people with my germs, I really wanted to check out MS MR, the new “it” band of the moment, or whatever you want to call that. Perhaps it was the sickness, and my general mood of discomfort going into the sweaty Wrongbar, but …
