wow, all these bands I could easily see anytime in NYC are playing... in NYC under the banner of a shitty magazine.
really, wow.
So many good bands have been "discovered" through CMJ- what would we do without them?
really, like, wow.

florence and the machine!!! so excited, she is fucking amazing live. she was great at sxsw, glad to see her get over to america more.

the only band worth listening to on here is Joe Pug. I don't think he's played NY before, so CMJ is worth it for him alone.

Posted by david | August 28, 2008 9:13 PM

there doesn't look like anything to be excited about on this list.

Catcall is pretty amazing. I also recommend Die! Die! Die!

Posted by Nick | August 28, 2008 10:13 PM

studies show that 1 out of 10 angry Brooklyn vegan posters are just pissed that they weren't accepted to CMJ.

These united states. Princeton. Margot and the nuclear so and sos. Sweet I'm there. Should be fun
