Enter Soundwave: Second Announcement





SOUNDWAVE 2013 PREVIEW PT. II
by Katie Langley


Soundwave 2013 has had a lot of mixed reactions. And admittedly I wasn’t initially thrilled with the first announcement. Although, after digging out a lot of my old CDs and taking them for a spin it didn’t take long for the pangs of nostalgia to change my mind.


After securing my ticket in Friday’s member pre-sale, I was eager to hear the second announcement. And I wasn’t disappointed.


My personal favourites?



 Mindless Self Indulgence 



MSI have an eclectic sound. From punk rock, to techno to industrial – they’re hard to pigeon hole. Their songs are quirky and upbeat. And the front man goes by “Jimmy Urine”. I love them.
 

Billy Talent

 


These Canadian rockers toured the country recently with awesome reviews. Looking forward to checking them out! 




Cypress Hill

 


I saw Cypress Hill a couple of years ago at The Tivoli, and it rates as one of the most entertaining shows I’ve seen. Although, I’m fairly sure that’s because I was stoned out of my mind (from all of the second hand smoke fumes people). It was like Amsterdam up in there!
