Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Of all the artists that have sprung up from Toronto's eclectic music scene, Neon Windbreaker may be its most paradoxical (which, considering their competition includes Drake, Crystal Castles, Fucked Up and Broken Social Scene says a lot). A band rooted firmly in the indie scene yet produces melodic hardcore and pop music which espouses the core values of engaging DIY. Neon Windbreaker has, in an alarmingly short amount of time, managed to win over the faith and support of their city through crucial, carefully chosen support slots for Marnie Stern, Monotonix, Lullaby Arkestra and Do Make Say Think and the charitable actions of giving their debut EP away for free as a sandwich, fruit and mixed drink. Which is all to say that these former teen phenoms are a wildcard worth holding because, whether it's during their 200 shows leading up to and including SXSW or on their debut LP (recorded with Owen Pallett producer Leon Taheny) they will blow up just when you need them to.
