Death at Purchase Fall Fest (more by Kellyann Petry)

While the Duck Down vs Blacksmith showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg is indicating that hip hop is alive and well, Afro-Punk is declaring the opposite with a show at the venue just 4 days prior. Billed as "DEATH to Hip-Hop", protopunk pioneers Death will join Cerebral Ballzy, Ninjasonik, and Jersey Klan with Stack-Aly between sets as part of a CMJ event on 10/18 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets go on sale on 9/22 at noon, or try to get in with your CMJ badge. No other Death dates to report at the moment.

In between the birth and death of hip hop, Music Hall of Williamsburg will feature another two CMJ showcases. 10/20 will see Metronomy team with Class Actress (tickets) while 10/21 is the BrooklynVegan CMJ showcase with BRAIDS, Active Child, Weekend, Pepper Rabbit, and Blue Hawaii. Tickets are on sale for our CMJ show, or be one of the people to get in with your badge.

That leaves only one hole in MHOW's CMJ schedule. Nothing has been announced there for Wed., 10/19 yet. I can't say what will happen that night, but I can say that it will be interesting (and NOT affiliated with CMJ).

These guys play some tasty licks, much like the tasty licks Eric Schenkman will be laying down when the Spin Doctors play Pocket Full of Kryptonite in its entirety at Brooklyn Bowl next month.

this is serious stuff, and i would appreciate it if commenters took this seriously. i was a victim of the nitrous when some dude shoved a balloon in my face, which resulted in a really bad allergic reaction. i passed out, and next thing i remember was waking up at a lana del ray with equally confused concert-goers. it was one of the worst nights of my life.

I just saw an autographed copy of Spin Doctors legendary album Pocket Full of Kryptonite on amazon. This will surely break the all-time record for highest selling price ever. It takes The Spins to achieve greatness!
