i think BV gave CMJ a BJ this year. seems they are the only one with any shows. funny how last year CMJ was pretty damn fun, great bands, and this year there's nothing!!

I hope Laura has a great show. I won't get to see her until Friday at Joe's Pub and can't wait.

CMJ SUCKS THIS YEAR.

Does CMJ even matter anymore? Seems like a jerk-off fest for blogs while it's just one pleasant-but-forgettable act after another for the rest of us...

Marling was fine. Antlers were the highlight....haven't seen a crowd leave like that since the CLHSY/National show at Warsaw in 05....Fanfarlo was lacking. 2nd time I've seen them and they are really young....not in a good way. Set was zzzzz.

Antlers brought it tonight.

Antlers kicked major ass, but Fanfarlo was great too.

no reason why antlers won't be super huge pretty soon.

I think he means Nenah Cherry. She goes on at 930pm sharp. Ask Dave Hill about them.

Antlers were amazing. Fanfarlo was ok. Laura Marling was good. The Wheel was very good.
