NXNE 2014 Preview: Go For The Eyes – “Leave Me With Today”

It’s that time of year again, Toronto: North by Northeast 2014 is nearly upon us. As usual, the Telescope will be your principal source for NXNE previews and reviews, so stay tuned!

Wander into a dark basement with only a candle, and open a mysterious door that someone latched shut? Yeah, right! We’ve seen too many episodes of The Dead Files to be caught trying something as foolhardy as that.

No ghosts in this basement, fortunately, just a rudimentary version of the frozen wheel chamber from Lost.

How’s that kid gonna get home, now? And what was that other version of him thinking, making contact with himself? The number one rule of time travel is (from Charles Yu’s How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe): “If you ever see yourself coming out of a time machine, run. Run away as fast as you can. Don’t stop. Don’t try to talk. Nothing good can come of it.”

Calgary’s Go For The Eyes play their NXNE set on Wednesday, June 18 at 10 PM, at The Hideout.
