Prince Rama at Cake Shop - 10/17/12
Prince Rama

BV photographer Amanda Hatfield and I were both running around the L.E.S. on Wednesday (10/17) and we crossed paths at the Terrorbird/Impose day party at Cake Shop. I got there when Jerome LOL was on. Jerome was one half of the now-broken-up LOL Boys, and even without his partner (Markus Garcia, who is also working on solo material now), Jerome was one of the better DJs I saw at this year's CMJ. Jerome LOL was followed by Mykki Blanco, who blew the roof off of Cake Shop (and not just because he's almost as tall as the basement's low ceiling). The venue really began filling up for him and he had most of the crowd dancing along. Fellow NYC locals Prince Rama followed and kept everyone just as upbeat as Mykki just made them. Though CMJ is a great time to check out new bands from around the world, parties stacked with local faves are a great time too. The show ended on an equally high note with a set from Pictureplane, who isn't from around here, but plays NYC all the time too, and is always worth showing up for.

Amanda was there for Prince Rama and Pictureplane, and she also caught Win Win earlier in the day, who I unfortunately missed. More pictures of those three artists are below.

Theres about maybe 10 interesting metal bands who have been around for a while out 10,000 or so that pop up every 50 mints lately.

This band is great live and on record. Haters to the left, as my main man Kenneth Parcells would say.
