If Nuit Blanche was a concert, and I was to review it, I’d break down each artist’s “set” and tell you about what they “played” and how great or horrible it was. But, I don’t want to tell you what you already know, or rub in your face what you may have missed.

Children Collide

Now that 2009 is long gone, you probably think that all of the 2009 wrap-up articles should have stopped by now. Me too.
