CMJ in New York- question

Post by Emilie » Wed Oct 15, 2008 3:05 am

So, this isn't really a popfest, and I'm going to ask a question (sorry for not providing any information): Does anyone know how CMJ in New York works? I'll be in NYC from 8/22 to 8/29, which is when CMJ is going on. I always wanted to see a show at the Cake Shop, but I don't want to spend $300 on a festival badge when I won't be able to go to that many shows (I have many relatives to visit). Anybody?

Unless things have changed this year, you can buy tickets to individual shows just as if it wasn't CMJ.

you can come out and see the happy happy birthday to me records showcase on the 22nd in williamsburg (brooklyn) at spike hill 184-186 bedford ave for FREE. starts at 8 PM. Forever (girl cowpunk from San Fran), Great Lakes (Athens, GA via NYC elephant six alumni), the Lolligags (elctro-pop tweecore duo), Cars Can Be Blue (potty mouth brats with a love for pop n roll), and Bearsuit (spazzy riot grrrl power twee band from norwich uk). it should be fun. be sure to go see the muslims on the 23rd though. mike

the jens lekman thing is a "singing dj set" whatever that means. i hope it's more singing than dj-ing though.
