[NXNE] Still Life Still @ BLK BOX 6/14/2013
Friday night at the BLK BOX was the Young Lions Music Club show case. I was there mainly for the Arts & Craft’s acts Still Life Still and Gold and Youth. Lead SLS man Brendan Saarinen took on double duties as a keyboardist and guitarist as the band played some hooky pop tunes.

[NXNE] Gold & Youth @ BLK BOX 6/14/2013
Gold and Youth’s Beyond Wilderness is probably one of my favourite albums this year. However, I thought their live set still needed some work. Part of the blame was the venue itself, which didn’t really lend to that type of music. The bass was too heavy and no matter where I stood: front, back, top it felt way too penetrating on the ears. I didn’t remember ear plugs that night so I left 2 songs in.
