We here at The Take Media have had the pleasure of hitting a few awesome shows in this rad city. As a thank you, we’d like to throw one of our own!

Three stellar bands are gearing up to propel some day time fun during NXNE this year; The Rathburns, Skinny Bitches, and Convoys. In the backroom of The Imperial Pub on Saturday June 15th, This combination of sweaty dance rock, charmingly beautiful on-stage chemistry and rock and roll attitude will get you in the mood to hit the town for some NXNE nightlife.

A bit about the bands:

The Rathburns reign from just North of Toronto, but when they make their way into town their energetic legion of fans aren’t far behind. Clearly influenced by blues rock, this foursome plays with such confidence and swagger that you know that they are enjoying being on stage as much as a crowd enjoys watching them. Check out The Rathburns here.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing Skinny Bitches live, you’ll know just what I mean when I say that this duo is just dripping with musical talent. This incredibly alluring duo is based out of Toronto, and carry a repertoire of both serene, vocally driven ballads, and danceable rock tunes. To get an idea of how they don’t take themselves too seriously, take a look at their video for their song Gunsmoke.  For more tunes, check ‘em out here.

Convoys is a band that has been busy making the rounds at all the major venues this past year. Sharing shows with bands such as The Archives, The Ascot Royals and Beekeeper, it’s no surprise that they’ve generated some local buzz. This trio knows how to make an audience move and isn’t afraid to take risks with their songs; generating sub genres left right and centre. They always make sure their audience has a good time. Check out their self-made/DIY style vid for their tune Far From Home. For more of their stuff, click here.

Hope to see you out on June 15th at The Imperial! We’ve been reviewing shows since 2009, I think it’s time we threw one! Check out the Facebook event page to RSVP!
