Local Natives
Local Natives

Because there can never be enough shows, I helped put together another one happening during CMJ. In addition to Tuesday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg, Thursday night at Southpaw, and Friday night at Fontana's (not to mention three day parties), BrooklynVegan is proud to present a Friday night (10/23) Williamsburg loft party at a secret location. This is the lineup:

09:00 Blacklist (NYC)
09:35 The Loom (NYC)
10:10 The Dutchess & The Duke (Seattle)
10:45 Immaculate Machine (Canada)
11:20 Inlets (NYC)
11:55 Local Natives (LA)
12:30 The Love Language (North Carolina)
You may be wondering why we would throw two shows on Friday night. Well, I figured that the Relapse Records-heavy-BBG bill at Fontana's was different enough, and far enough away (Manhattan vs Brooklyn), that it wouldn't matter. Not to mention the combined capacities of the two parties is less than even one show at Music Hall.

The loft show literally holds less than 100 people aka space is limited. It costs $8 at the door, there will be beer and wine for purchase inside, and if you want to go, you should send an email to with your name. Those who email will get an immediate confirmation that they made it on to the list, followed by directions to the Williamsburg (Bedford L area) location on the day before the show. RSVPing gets you on the list and gets you the directions, but entrance will still be first come, first served based on capacity on the actual night of the show. To guarantee admission, show up early. We'll tweet the capacity status throughout the night as well.

The Dutchess & The Duke are playing two shows that same night. From the loft, they'll head to the Vice party at Public Assembly. One night later you can catch them at the official Sub Pop & Hardly Art CMJ showcase at Mercury Lounge.

Local Natives are one of two bands playing two BrooklynVegan parties this week (the other is The Wheel). They also appear at the free Saturday day party at Pianos (full details TBA). The Saturday party is one of two BV day parties at Pianos this year. The other is on Thursday afternoon (details also TBA) which is the same day Local Natives play the Aquarium Drunkard party at Fontana's which is the location of the BV day party on Friday (say that all 5 times fast).

The Love Language just signed to Merge Records.

The loft party is NOT an official CMJ show. It is the only show Blacklist is playing during CMJ week.

Ugh. I would like to see one of the bands on this bill (who shall remain nameless because they would probably prefer not to be associated with this comment) but I do not want to be subjected to the performances of the bands who will go on before them (especially the one with the misspelled word in their name).

Ugh. I hate reading ungrateful comments from people(who shall remain nameless) with no taste. I don't want to be subjected to stupidity especially before my comment.

I think this is one of the most solid lineups this CMJ. Good Job!

Wow, that must be one of the most boring and uninspired lineups of CMJ in recent history.

"Wow, that must be one of the most boring and uninspired lineups of CMJ in recent history."

Don't worry, the loft isn't that big, so your presence will not be missed!

Speaking of, RSVP quick if you want in because the list is about to close.

I'm in favor of this show. I saw the Loom at Sycamore last month and they were great. Inlets are also good and I think Local Natives has potential to put on an awesome show.

I am curious to see how the loom performs now that the head guy on strings (shown at the beginning of the video) is no longer with the band. I thought he was the strongest musician of the group. I guess we'll see at the show (ugh?).
See u there.

The party presented by Brooklyn Vegan would really turn out to be great! Together with the talented line-up, for sure, a lot of audience will enjoy the night. The video shows a taste of their performance which people would really look forward, including me.
