NXNE Night Three – The Anti-Queens @ the Bovine

One of the things I’ve learned so far this year at NXNE is that this fine country of ours is producing some fierce female musicians. Seeing these women up on stage rocking out harder than a lot of the other bands we’ve seen this week makes me proud to be a woman.

@ the Bovine Sex Club

The Anti-Queens are another local band that I’ve been trying to see play for a while now. After seeing front woman Emily Bones collaborating with another favourite of mine, Sarah Blackwood, I’ve been keeping my eye on them, anxious to see what these three girls could do.

The Anti-Queens
put on an explosive show at the Bovine, blending grungy rock with a hint of punk. The dynamic on stage was great to watch, you can tell that there’s a great friendship between the girls and that only makes their essence all that stronger.

Coincidentally, last night was the pre-release of their new EP Grow Up / Stay Young. It was also Emily’s birthday. The Anti-Queens easily fed off all this excitement, turning their set into a seriously rocking show.

The Anti-Queens will be playing at Pride and will be around Toronto plenty over the next few months, you need to see them rock.
