SHE SHOULD TAKE OFFSPRING'S "WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET A JOB" LITERALLY. A starving artist belts out some passionate vocals at Toronto's North by Northeast music festival this past week.

Music is the star at the North by Northeast (NXNE) music festival and conference. Held each year in Toronto, the festival features over 450 acts over four days and nights of breathless activity. Now in its 13th year, NXNE boasts the hottest independent talent while offering playtime for the latest up-and-comers. Between the seventh and tenth of June this year, fans assaulted these venues to hear the festival’s eclectic mix of sounds.

See the Arts section for The Gazette’s extensive coverage of the event. Also, be sure to take a look at our online photo essay featuring the work of Jon Purdy and Lulu Wei.

And if any of these bands pique your interest, take the time to check them out online or at your local music store. The bands, we’re sure, will thank you.
