RIP Alexisonfire + 2012

Greetings and happy new year from AIRWAVES!


2012 held many highlights and holds many memories. One of the biggest was the Alexisonfire farewell tour show I went to. It was an experience that cannot be merely defined by words and a night I will always remember. For that reason they were chosen as the featured artist this week.


I also talked about how a band becomes legendary (and it is my opinion that Alexisonfire earned that status). They wrote breakthrough music for years, were good to their fans, put on epic shows and always played music they loved.


Rest in peace AoF and the music of George, Wade, Dallas, Steele, Jordan, and Jesse.


The remaining minutes of the show consisted of indie tunes and some remixes, featuring 2 songs from TV on the Airwave Cinema – Skins and Gossip Girl. Show news was also covered with lots of concerts filling up the first few months of 2013.


Notable dates:


Jan 18 – UnderOath farewell show
Feb 16 – Passion Pit + Matt & Kim
Mar 27 – Alt J
Mar 28 – Local Natives
