CMJ is officially over, but if you've still got any energy left, there are tons of good shows today. A handful of bigger bands are making their way through town like Divine Fits (who play with Cold Cave), The Darkness, Justice and Chromeo (DJ), WHY?, Psychedelic Furs and Lemonheads feat. Juliana Hatfield, The Sea and Cake, and A-Trak (who plays with Flosstradamus like he did in Brooklyn last night).

Plus, a bunch of the artists who were here for CMJ are sticking around. Most notably, there's the Wild Nothing, Merchandise, and Mac DeMarco show, but other good ones include Austin's Ringo Deathstarr, local faves Parquet Courts, Juan Wauters (of The Beets), and Son of Salami at Shea Stadium, and if you're up early, the free day party at 285 Kent with Hilly Eye, Blanche Blanche Blanche, Ava Luna, and more should be a great time.

We threw a few events during CMJ, including day parties at Public Assembly on Friday and Saturday. One of the highlights of those parties was London post-punk newcomers Savages tearing up the front room on Friday, followed by an unrelenting set by Toronto punks METZ. If you missed it, you can check out videos of both bands from that party below, via (((unartig))).

Where is Hundred Waters playing?

Dear Darkness,

I watched DLR do that with Van Halen in the '80s. Thanks for being original.

The Darkness can go suck a bag-a-dicks

no new bands are "original". Just young bodies replacing the old worn ones doing the old shit for new people.

Wish I could be at the darkness tonight, they're fun as hell

People who can't spell "definitely" should all drown in a massive vat of hummus.

A blessing or a curse?

Looks like he's doing some kind of organic craze-bounce.

Some dude just fall off the third side balcony at the justice show and landed on some girl. No bullshit! One of the craziest sites I've ever seen!

"Witnesses at the West 34th Street site said the man was gripping the ledge for dear life before plummeting at around 10:30 p.m."

This is an awesome description. Made my day.

I hope that they clean it up before Cat Power on Tuesday, don't want to be wading through human debris on my way to the stage.

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2012 10:17 AM

can't believe no one died, between the dude falling and the people he likely landed on. crazy
