Though we maybe went less crazy this year compared to others, there will be no lack of BrooklynVegan shows taking place during CMJ this year. You already know about the big official show Thursday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg, and the much darker one taking place Saturday at Union Pool. I can now finally tell you about the first of two free day parties taking place at Public Assembly in Brooklyn during CMJ week....
The date: Friday, October 22nd, 2010
The time: noon-6pm
The place: Public Assembly (70 North 6th St)
STAGE 1That's fourteen kick ass bands (two still TBA) in six free hours, but that's not all... We'll have free booze (sorry, this event is 21+) and free food. And free EarPeace ear plugs to the first 50 people through the door (a $14.95 value). Get there for:
12:30 Magic Bullets
01:15 The Phantom Band
02:00 Ty Segall
02:45 Times New Viking
04:15 Asobi Seksu
05:15 TBA (will announce Thursday night)
* free EarPeace (while supplies last)No ticket or RSVP necessary. No badges. Just get there early and get inside. You won't need to spend any money, though we will have some schwag for sale to help raise some cash for Music Has Power (The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function). Moby talks more about what that is in a video below.
* free V-Spot breakfast burritos & empanadas (while supplies last)
* free Firefly Vodka + Bourbon (while supplies last)
* free Magic Hat beer (while supplies last)
* free Raw Revolution bars
The BV day party is also Asobi Seksu's only show that isn't their official CMJ showcase (which is taking place at Santos Party House on Saturday night).
Ty Segall plays his official showcase Saturday night, but at Knitting Factory. Also on that Panache Booking Showcase are AIDS Wolf, Turbo Fruits, Heavy Cream, Pujol, Tôg, Circle Pit, and SCREENS.
Stay tuned to @bvCMJ for even more CMJ news and updates than you'll find on BrooklynVegan.com.
And stay tuned for what we're doing in the same exact venue during the same exact times one day later. And stay tuned for the bands playing the other two Friday slots.
Also thanks to: Zach Jaeger of Tonally Dude Productions for the sweet flyer you see above, and to Vinny's Music for providing us with some sweet gear, to Line 6 for even more sweet gear, and to Underground Press for getting us some merch printed to help raise money for charity.
