On June 20, The Yonge and Dundas Square was filled up with fans of The New Pornographers, headlining NXNE 2015.

VIP guests were invited to a reception sponsored by Samsung Canada at the Hard Rock Café prior to the concert, where a few drinks and delicious hors d’oeuvres warmed us up for the night.

The Vancouver-based supergroup had festivalgoers’ heads nodding and bodies grooving to their “celebration set”, as lead singer and main songwriter A.C. Newman described, after keeping fans waiting for four years.

The intensity grew as Newman and Kathryn Calder performed with their strong vocals, but Newman made sure the crowd relaxed their necks with quips on the surroundings in between songs.
The crowd stuck around until the very end of the night and brought The New Pornographers back on stage for two encores.
