"[Friday] included a bit of borough hopping between Brooklyn and Manhattan. First up was the Brooklyn Vegan showcase at Public Assembly. This included two rooms of free music and free alcohol (if you like [Magic Hat] or Firefly). There was also a table selling BV shirts, proceeds of which go towards "Music Has Power" (The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function). Good music + a good cause = good party by the Vegan. There's another one [Saturday] that has a sick line-up. Gonna head there first thing [Saturday].

One other thing worth noting about that BV party is one of the bands: Shrag. This band was from the UK, which got me thinking about how many bands travel from all over the world (especially places like the UK and New Zealand) just to come to CMJ. I think it's really cool how this festival gives people a chance to experience music from not just all over the country, but from different parts of the world as well. Because let's face it, how many of us are going to be visiting New Zealand any time soon?" [News on Shuffle]

Shrag and Devotchka were both announced as additions to Friday's bill on Thursday night. Thanks so much to everyone that came by, especially those who showed up early to fill the room for Jonny Corndawg's 12pm set, even if it was just because you wanted one of the free Earpeace earplugs we gave out to the first 50 people through the door. Hopefully you were rewarded by Corndawg's sweet country sounds (washed down with free Firefly and Magic Hat)...
Jonny Corndawg is an Esmont native who plays in Charlottesville all the time (his website says he's in Nashville) and who I caught for the first time over the weekend. His square jaw was beard-covered and framed in a cowboy hat and huge sunglasses. The silly facade--"Jonny Corndawg" is inlayed on his acoustic guitar!--can only hide his chops for so long. If he didn't have chops, would he have written these lines:

"Drink water and juice with a little slice of lemon/ eat a raw clove of garlic every once in a while/ meditate, appreciate, learn a foreign language/ and understand that immigrants have the hardest lives." [c-ville]

Hopefully you also got there while the free V-Spot empenadas were still available. As Andrew pointed out, they were delicious. If you didn't get an empenada, hopefully you at least snacked on a free Raw Rev bar or two.

As Andrew also pointed out, John Vanderslice (who played Mercury Lounge the night before) ended his solo set in a very special way - on the floor with 2 guest musicians (one with a horn). The crowd, dreaded member of Nada Surf included, had the three performers completely surrounded. After the set, John went out to coffee with fans (or at least that's what he said he was going to do).

Devotchka capped things off on the main stage, complete with more horns. Thanks again to Vinny's Music for the equipment. More pictures and some videos from the whole day (with a second set on its way). below...

Was a great day, thanx BV. Times New Viking were great as were Ty Segall. Shrag were pretty poor.

I am a Earth Science teacher and since this was a school day I took the day off of work, got blazed, saw incredible music all afternoon and drank lots of free beer. Fucking glad I did. Thank you dear BV sir, the kids loved having a sub.

This concert was really fun. I was the fellow in the back pulling pita triangles out of a ziplock bag and dipping it in sabras original blend all day with a big smile on my face.
