These United States were listed as playing CMJ this year, but as I found out when I asked them to play one of my parties, that wasn't true. They did play two NYC shows a little less than a month before CMJ though, and they are playing one a little less than a month after. That show is tonight, Wednesday November 19th, in Knitting Factory's Tap Bar with Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, Mean Creek, and Morgan Grace. If you go, note that there's also a free Brown Bag All Stars show going on in the same club one floor down (and an Amanda Diva/Blitz the Ambassador/Che Grand show happening in the main space) (I'm gonna miss the option to see three separate shows in one venue in one night) (although the Lower East Side and Williamsburg are kind of like that since so many clubs are so close to each other) (and Williamsburg will have even one more option when Knitting Factory moves there). All TUS dates below...
