CMJ ‘11 starts today, yup, with day parties, which should be all free! You should check Music Slut’s Piano’s party with the likes of Chad Valley, Prussia, Jonquil, We Barbarians, The Forms, The Beets and much more. Also, the Living Room starts Paper Garden Records’s party at 12 with Dad Rocks, Tall Ships, Pree and more. Aaaand Secret Mountains, Snowmine and more will play Spike Hill.
You can also check Pitchfork’s picks for CMJ 2011.
My pick will be this:
Stereogum/PopGun: Titus Andronicus, Delicate Steve, Chelsea Wolfe, Cuckoo Chaos, – Glasslands
But I might hover over Public Assembly as well.
