NXNE 2012: Paper Lions @ The El Mocambo

FRIDAY - The Little Red Umbrella is pretty obsessed with Paper Lions. They're one of the very first names we search for in any festival program — and they were first band mentioned in our emails to each other when their name popped up on the schedule for NXNE 2012. Whether the catchy PEI indie rockers are live in Bellwoods, or just near there, or in a sweaty club, Paper Lions have a subtle intensity and charismatic presence.

So, naturally we couldn’t miss them playing the Young Lions Music Club showcase at the El Mocambo. And with an energetic midnight set, they showed us once again they're one of our favourite acts to see live.
