Budweiser Music House (NXNE)

Toronto music fans are probably making or updating their NXNE schedules right now, as its music festival time again.  One place I’ll be dropping by this week will be at the Budweiser Music House at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern.  Always a destination during our music festivals in Toronto, this years’s line-up is solid and no doubt this venue will be busy all week.

from nxne: Budweiser Music House is a national festival series that champions venues, musicians, and iconic live music moments.   With can’t-miss sets from the likes of LOW, Perfect Pussy, Joel Plaskett Emergency, and The Felice Brothers, shared bills with Canadian favourites like Whitehorse with Jim Cuddy; Sam Cash with Whitney Rose, and Joe Nolan; and Lindi Ortega with Harlan Pepper, and Lee Harvey Osmond, plus surprises and more on the schedule, there’s lots on offer for everyone.  Whether you’re an indie rock supporter, ardent punk fan, or a general live music lover, you’re going to want to be at Budweiser Music House all night/week long.

Also, Budweiser will be setting up camp at Yonge and Dundas Square, with a Budweiser beer garden.  NXNE Platinum Badge & Music Wristband holders will have access to a VIP bar, featuring a patio with the best view of all the headlining action.

See you at the shows.
