Savages @ BV CMJ 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
UK post punk act Savages came to CMJ on a deafening wave of hype that they not only managed to meet but exceed with their intense, blisteringly awesome live performances (and absolutely killer rhythm section). The quartet are currently wrapping up sessions for their debut album but will be coming back to America to take on another festival: SXSW. After their visit to Austin, Savages will hit NYC for two shows: Bowery Ballroom on March 18 and Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 19. Tickets to both shows go on AmEx presale on Wednesday (1/16) at noon with the regular on-sale happening Friday (1/18).
