CALLmeKAT ANNOUNCES UPCOMING JUNE TOUR DATES

June 7th, 2010

Having recently returned to the states after a European tour, Copenhagen-via-NYC musician CALLmeKAT will be performing several dates in June, including a set of dates at NXNE in Toronto.  Known for her distinctly Scandinavian sound: melancholic, dreamy pop, CALLmeKAT is the moniker of Danish singer, keyboardista and composer Katrine Ottosen. Throughout Europe and Scandinavia, CALLmeKAT has toured as solo headliner as well as opening for notable artists such as Sebastien Tellier, Au Revoir Simone, Okkervil River, The Dø and Nouvelle Vague, amongst others.
 In 2009, CALLmeKAT played numerous critically-acclaimed shows, received an Underground Music Award for “Best Alternative Act,” and was granted one of the Danish Art Council’s prestigious grants for young, talented artists with international ambition and potential. She then made an appearance at the 2010 SXSW Festival, where she was asked to perform a “Tiny Desk SXSW Concert” on NPR‘s All Things Considered. This was followed by a pick on both Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton’s (NPR) “Who We Liked-list” from this year’s SxSW. During the festival, she was also filmed by Yours Tru.ly for an intimate parking lot performance. 
 Living in New York since early 2010, she recently collaborated with Joe Magistro (Prophet Omega) on finishing her international debut When Owls Are Out, which consists of reworked and remixed material from her Scandinavian 2008 release Fall Down, and also brand new recordings.

Check out CALLmeKAT’s video for the single “My Sea,” directed by D.R. Kelley and filmed on location in Los Angeles.

April 17th, 2010

TORONTO, April 13, 2010 – NXNE announces 14 incredible concerts in Toronto this summer. The festival kicks off on June 14 and runs until June 20, 2010. Tickets are now available online at www.nxne.com.

Presented by Virgin Mobile Canada, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Iggy & The Stooges headline an explosive free show on Saturday, June 19 on the Virgin Mobile Stage at Yonge-Dundas Square – their first North American tour date this summer and only Canadian date on the tour. The Stooges’ line-up features James Williamson on guitar, original Stooge Scott Asheton on drums, bassist Mike Watt of Minutemen fame, long-time saxman Steve Mackay – and, up front, the godfather of punk himself: Iggy Pop.

Virgin’s history is rooted in music, so partnering with NXNE and bringing an act like Iggy & The Stooges in for a free show is just the sort of thing Virgin Mobile likes to do. We can’t wait to see him blow the audience away,” said Nathan Rosenberg, Chief Marketing Officer, Virgin Mobile Canada.

Revered Los Angeles punk band X returns to Toronto after a 20-year hiatus from Canada. Featuring the original line-up of John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom and dummer DJ Bonebrake, the band has two of its albums listed on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. 

Danish duo The Raveonettes hit NXNE on tour in support of their October release In and Out of Control. The band’s blend of ghostly vocals, spacey guitar, and noise has earned praise from Blender, Rolling Stone and Q Magazine since their first album was released in 2001.

Grammy award-winning Long Island trio De La Soul brings NXNE a shot of vintage hip hop and jazz rap. Mudhoney, considered the pioneers of Seattle grunge, play the festival and speak as part of the NXNE Conference Village. Incendiary art-rock quintet Les Savy Fav arrive from New York; and Alabama sci-fi surf rockers Man or Astroman’s crazy live show will leave crowds buzzing.

Also joining the line-up are Stereogum “band to watch” synthpop group Cold Cave and supercharged Vancouver duo Japandroids, whose music NME described as “a virtual tempest of joyous abandon.”

Rolling Stone’s Hype monitor alerted the world to Florida’s Surfer Blood, calling their April 2010 debut album “giant-sized choruses, festooned in glitter and lit up with neon.” They’re booked for NXNE, as is electro-rap Kanye protégé Kid Sister. San Diego’s surf-punk phenom Wavves tour as a three-piece and are also on this year’s bill.

Breakout psychobilly San Francisco quartet Thee Oh Sees make their NXNE debut playing “tunes only a soulless vampire couldn’t enjoy.” Juno award-winning Canadian rockers Sloan return to the festival this year.
