Name and occupation?
danny barria, guitarist.

Is this your first time playing CMJ?
no, i played with mahogany a few years back
and with sonya two years before that.

What were you doing last year during CMJ?
last year, i was watching as many other bands as i could
and wishing we'd finished our record.

Any tips for those coming to NYC from out of town?
go to the museum of natural history,
check out the promenade at night,
buy johnny beach/jay belin/christen thomas/rory ahearn a drink,
and keep an eye on your instruments,
don't leave them in your van overnight.

The Syrup Room isn't that hard to get to. I don't think it's far from the Morgan L stop (though I could be wrong) or if you're driving, it's only about a mile or so east of the BQE. You just have to drive straight down Morgan for a while and then turn off. If you haven't been there, though, it's in a really desolate, quiet (eerily so) industrial area.

The Big Sleep sound like Kyle Lawrence interpreting Oksana Baiul doing a triple axle off the Golden Gate Bridge!

The promenade at night is even better when you have a ray of sun by your side to keep you warm.
