Tamaryn / police
Tamaryn's exclusive Brooklyn CMJ show, which wasn't actually part of CMJ, took place at Coco66 on Friday night (10/22). Light Asylum and Frankie & the Outs were both openers. Glasser was added at the last minute, but never ended up getting to play. Tamaryn, as you can read in the above tweets, barely got to play after the cops busted in after three songs.
The venue, which reportedly was either over capacity or not up to code, remains shut as of Sunday night. There's a rumor that they might not open back up for a while, though they are still advertising Monday's Superhuman Happiness show.
If this happened in Texas during SXSW, one might speculate that Coco66's closing had something to do with the "unofficial" nature of the show, but it would probably be silly to guess that CMJ has that much influence with the NYC government.
