I thought it would be fitting for my song of the day today to be from an artist playing tonight as part of NXNE. So here we are. Young Empires is made of up three homegrown lads: Matthew Vlahovich, Robert Aaron Ellingson and Jake Palahnuk.
‘Rain of Gold’ is dusted with tribal energy and edge and will no doubt get your feet moving faster than lightning. If you like Friendly Fires, you’re sure to like this golden treasure.
They are playing tonight at Dakota Tavern (249 Ossington Avenue), slotted for 1am. The other artists playing there tonight: The Sheepdogs, First Rate People, Ghostkeeper, and The Pack A.D.
