With the resurgence of metal CMJ should bring back the concurrent Metal Marathon of old, or at least have more metal showcases.

Having to make Dungen or Rival Schools a "heavy music" pic, despite both being great bands shows how little attention is still being paid by CMJ to metal. This should be a destination, and not a hodg-podge of whoever happens to be in town and is not freak folk.

"does anyone know the set times for the Knitting Factory on Saturday?"

Go to the set times for every single band showcasing are up in the "marathon" section. The site is slow today from tons of traffic so be forewarned.

Thanks BB - great post. Really looking forward to TOMBS on Thursday night!

Posted by Beeeeeve | October 21, 2008 3:57 PM

I just confirmed with Akimbo that they are in for tonight @ Fontana's

Posted by BBG | October 21, 2008 3:57 PM

Bison B.C. is one of my favorite new bands. Even though the thought of going to a CMJ week show again makes me break out in hives, I might have to hit up that Metal Blade / Relapse showcase.

I can't find any info on the Saturday Knitting Factory show. It's a BV show, but no info was ever posted.
