NXNE 2013: Wannabe @ BLK BOX by Cody McGraw

FRIDAY — We stayed up late (and endured a lack of beer at the venue) in order to get our '90s fix from Toronto's Spice Girls tribute band, but sadly Wannabe is no Sheezer.

The girls did look great and really got into their respective characters, but there was something inexplicable missing. Although it's probably unfair to compare them to tribute bands as awesome as Sheezer or Vag Halen, it's inevitable — and the 3am time slot and the lack of beer definitely didn't help their cause. (Especially given how much we were looking forward to the extended license.) However, if you'd like to spice up your life or need a dose of girl power, then Wannabe is the cover band for you.
