Neutral Uke Hotel & Golden Bloom Showcase at NXNE in Toronto

We all know Shawn Fogel is a hard-working guy. But he's definitely been outdoing himself lately. Taking on the amazing Neutral Uke Hotel side project and self-reviewing his concert experiences in our new feature Thank You, Good Night. Now he's really taking the cake by playing two shows at this year's NXNE (North by Northeast) festival in Toronto.
On Friday, June 18th, Shawn (and some "friends") will play Neutral Milk Hotel's acclaimed album In the Aeroplane Over the Sea on ukulele. Shawn's first sold-out show as Neutral Uke Hotel was an amazing experience, so look out, Toronto, here comes Neutral Uke Hotel! After wowing folks on Friday, Shawn and his bandmates will play as Golden Bloom on Saturday the 19th. Audiences are sure to love the power pop they'll be serving up.
Tickets to NXNE available here!
Neutral Uke Hotel will perform Friday night, June 18th at the Painted Lady at 9:00 PM and Golden Bloom will perform Saturday night, June 19th at Czehoski at 11:00 PM.
Now in its 16th year, North by Northeast Music Festival and Conference (NXNE) has become the Canadian festival destination for new and emerging talent—unsigned bands, indie favourites, and major-label headlining artists alike. Seen as the most anticipated summer music event in Canada, NXNE has cemented itself as an essential showcase opportunity for the best in new music.Five-day wristbands for music events are $50 CND.
