The second evening of CMJ was not about  going long distances, but spending the time, taking in an entire line up of the Rocker Stalker/Outlet Collective “Trios Do it Better” showcase at  Bar Matchless in Greenpoint .  Though La Resistance added another band member last minute, the thematic hiccup did not affect the packed house’s reaction.  The following three-pieces, electronic-tinged Black Bird White Sky, bluesy rock Chainwave, and multi-faceted Viva Mayday demonstrated the wide spectrum of sounds in New York.  The Gypsy West’s psychedelic, funky, and progressive sounds, DFW’s The Phuss’s loud and gritty rock, and heavy hitters, Lights Resolve filled the room and kept a wide range of tastes engaged.

It’s that time of year again when us music types post frantically about what shows to go to during CMJ week.  This year the festival takes place October 16-20, and I’m thrilled to be presenting three shows, in conjunction with some other great sponsors, The Outlet Collective, EiPR, CitizenMusic, and The Waster.

Additionally, the week will get started a bit early, on October 14 at Trash Bar in Williamsburg with some of my favorite Texans, The Phuss, who  are closing in on New York City, as they continue their midwest/northeast/southern fall tour that started last week.  They’ll be playing two CMJ gigs 10/16 and 10/17 at Bowery Electric and Bar Matchless.

Here’s the week in summary.  Click on each to RSVP on Facebook!
