UNDERGROUND BANDS TO BUZZ ABOUT

Posted by Megan Hilario, 3 months, 3 weeks ago

What do July Talk, Vance Joy and Broods all have in common? They once played the Drake Underground and are now headlining huge festivals and playing venues like the legendary Massey Hall. From local bands to acts around the globe, The Drake Underground is a mecca for discovering local artists and up + coming acts from around the world. We may be underground but we don’t live under a rock - and we want to share artists on our radar, coming through the basement this fall.

If the band could support any act, dead or alive who would be?
I'm gonna say an alive Radiohead but that answer would be different for each member I think.
