Death Grips at Coachella 2012 (more by David Andrako)
Death Grips

As mentioned, Death Grips are also playing a NPR-presented CMJ show with Flying Lotus at Le Poisson Rouge on October 17. That bill also includes Ali Shaheed Muhammad (of A Tribe Called Quest) and since we last spoke Buke & Gase were added as well. The show is free with "confirmed RSVP", which opens TODAY (10/9) at 10:45 AM (aka really soon). Act quick.

We already mentioned that Death Grips and LE1F are playing Pitchfork's CMJ showcase at new Brooklyn warehouse venue Villain on October 19 (50 N 3rd St). Now the full lineup is out and it also includes DIIV, Joey Bada$$, Holy Other, METZ, Merchandise, Daughn Gibson, Hundred Waters, and Angel Haze. The show goes from 8PM to 3 AM and is totally free to the public, but there will also be 200 priority tickets being given away at the Topman store (478 Broadway in SoHo) "on Wednesday and Thursday between 10 AM and 9 PM."

Pitchfork is also teaming up with MoMA PS1 to present a show in the VW Performance Dome on October 20 (22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City) with Andy Stott, Chairlift, and Doldrums, which runs from 3-6 PM. That show is free with museum admission.

Pitchfork's metal column, Show No Mercy, is also presenting an unofficial showcase during CMJ.

The fliers for both Pitchfork shows are below...

So this is the current flavor-of-the-month "indie" token rap artist that all the nerdy white scarves (and their "look at me! I'm diverse!" best-bud girls who act like they're in the know about everything complete with a patronizing "hello!?" in a Californiyyyaaaahhh accent) are supposed to eat up, and act like they're the hottest thing around right now, eh?

got in right at 1045 and got a confirmation but there's this part in the body of the email.....

Note from the producer of NPR Music + Soundcheck Present: Live From CMJ:

What the fuck is this?

Posted by Anonymous | October 9, 2012 10:59 AM

Yeah 10:56 both of you. That is just a stupid error message on the confirmations i am assuming. I got the same thing with my confirmation. If you got the tickets and it says you are on the will call you are in. Let em try at the door to say something different.

10:56, I think everyone was sent that with their email. I got in at 10:45 also.

Hey recheck your orders. That message is now gone and it just says thank you.

This band is even worse than Friends.

Can't remember a new band in a while that I've been excited about. 3 years ago, I was dying to get into all the CMJ Parties. This year I honestly couldn't give a shit.

RSVP just opened again!

Posted by dudebro | October 9, 2012 12:50 PM

I just got 2 tix on new rsvp after i saw the NPR music tweet the event. I too have the "sorry it's sold out" text at bottom of email. Even though it says that I'm confirmed. o.0

closed again

Posted by Anonymous | October 9, 2012 1:05 PM

12:55 yeah I got the message too even though NPR clearly is controlling when the rsvp is open so I think we're good. They just tweeted again saying that it's now sold out.
