Indie-Underground-Recommended-Event-Concert-London-Ontario-Aaron-McMillanIndie Underground’s goal isn’t to take you to see the biggest hype bands – It’s to get you to see the Best Indie Underground Bands in the Ideal Venues.

There are SO MANY good bands playing NXNE which means there are bound to be some scheduling conflicts. The route below is a great guide to follow if you want to maximize your fun with less stress, but feel free to add in / swap with some other bands. If you do veer from the route below, make sure you don’t miss Fuck Buttons (photo above) and Odonis Odonis. Alternative recommendations are at the bottom of this post.
