If you’re not going to be in Toronto this weekend but would like to witness the insanity that will be twelve straight hours of live-band repetitions of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” you’re in luck!
AUX has partnered with the Toronto Star to bring you a live stream from Toronto’s free all-night art thing, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, and its A Brief History of Rebellion installation at the Toronto Underground Cinema (186 Spadina Avenue). Members of Tokyo Police Club, Fucked Up, Gallows, $100, the Flatliners, Sheezer, the Darcys, Junior Battles, the Decay, Teenage Kicks, as well as Buck 65, D-Sisive, Raymi the Minx and a ton more, will take turns filling up the time with their own renditions of the seminal early-90s anthem.
The event is the brainchild of local PWYC record label/media collective JUICEBOXdotcom, which just happens to be run by AUX’s own Sam Sutherland and Ashley Carter, so we’re especially excited. Visit us here at AUX.tv or go to TheStar.com starting at 7:00 p.m. this coming Saturday to get in on the fun/crying.
The schedule of performers will be posted as it happens on Twitter.
