Nightbox rocked our Vapor Independent Music Showcase this past April at the Drake Hotel and we’ve been anxiously waiting for their debut album to drop (soon!) ever since. Their single “Burning” was premiered by the Neon Gold music blog, and their next tune “Utopia” is just as can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head (and why would you want to?!) catchy. What blew me away though was their live set, and I can’t wait to see the band do their thing this Sunday at Osheaga (Galaxie stage, 1:15pm!). If we’re lucky, they’ll pull out their Daft Punk cover that knocked our socks off at the Vapor Showcase.
Trust me, these guys are ones to watch (they’re now represented by the same management company as The Strokes – big things are definitely coming!), so check ‘em out this weekend in Montreal between pizza cones and poutine.
