YOUR CLAIM TO FAME IS THAT YOU HAVE ATTRACTIVE FRIENDS






(the newly redone Gramercy Theater; Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings at the Apollo; St. Vincent at the spankin' new Terminal 5; Black Mountain rollin' at Southpaw; and The Blow mesmerizing at the Gramercy Theater)

CMJ starts next week here in NYC. I've been doing a bit of pre-game warm up, catching some stellar shows this past week. Some bands I've talked to are relieved about not playing CMJ next week. According to them it's crowded, confused, rushed, and ends up being quantity over quality. Yep.
