Venue: Bovine Sex Club, Toronto
When: June 16th (NXNE)
SATE tore up the Bovine Sex Club in Toronto as part of a showcase during NXNE on Thursday to deliver a powerful performance that left the packed crowd covered in sweat, head banging away, and screaming for more. The Toronto vocalist/ songwriter packs a punch in her music as she fronts an equally commanding band, and brought it all to the Bovine to play for a devoted group of fans.
SATE kicked things off right away with in your face, raunchy rock n’ roll tunes and didn’t let the energy die for one second throughout the whole night. SATE’s dynamic vocals carried every tune as she packed each note with the bluesy roar and flare that is so unique to her style. Her outrageous on stage attitude as she climbed up on barriers and interacted with her bandmates tied it all together into one of the most outstanding performances I’ve ever seen. The soulful “What Did I Do” featured a playful call and response between bandmates as they tried to out do each other when chanting the infectious chorus of the tune.
Overall, SATE isn’t just a band or another show to go to but a complete force to experience. Not seeing SATE live would be missing out on a truly special opportunity.

I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
