Toronto’s the oOohh Baby Gimmie Mores are a cocktail of eclectic sounds and genres. Starting out as a hip hop duo, TOBGM began infusing live instruments into their act ultimately creating a unique booty-shaking band. Think early Beastie Boy’s with more edge, grit, vibe and a more modern sound. TOBGM tell us more of what to expect from this year’s NXNE showcase.
Fantastic – we’re sun bathing with Oprah Winfrey and Halle Berry. Sipping on Mai Tai’s and enjoying the summer breeze. But in actuality, we are in Toronto preparing to rock the hell out of NXNE before we get to our escapades with M. Winfrey and Ms. Berry!
There are a lot of bands playing NXNE, what makes yours stand out?
We get more asses shaking than any band out here right now. We take pride in combining our swagging island flavour with our grungy punk vibes and turning every show into a very sweaty and very sexy party.
Have you played NXNE before? If so, tell us about your experience, the things you learned and how your performances went down. What are you planning on doing differently this time? If not, tell us how you’re preparing for the festival and what you’re hoping to get out of it.
Yes, we have played NXNE before and we truly enjoyed it. Our performance went very smoothly, but it definitely led to a different evolution of our sound. We’ve added two new members since then to take our music further than we could initially do.
What is your band working on at the moment?
We’re currently working on our next EP which should be out late summer. Stay tuned for the singles shortly.
Tell us one thing you’re hoping to accomplish by the end of summer.
Achieve world peace and eliminate world hunger. But until then, we will do the same thing we do every night. TRY AND TAKE OVER THE WORLD.
What other acts are you hoping to catch at the festival this year?
Luckily, a major band we’re looking forward to seeing is already playing with us for NXNE. The MAD ONES. Fantastic!
NXNE is finally starting to receive international recognition for its stellar lineups and workshops. What do you think this means for Canada and Canadian music?
We feel it further solidifies what people in Canada already knew. Canada is filled with amazing musical talent that can rival anywhere in the world and we hope to be at the forefront of bands recognized in this musical explosion.
Which shows/events/BBQs/unofficial events are you playing? Please list all below.
Hard Luck, June 16th, Midnight. Be There. Or Else. *Shakes Fist*
Where can we find out more about you?
Any last parting words for us music-hungry Toronto folk?
