set times are at the bottom of this post...

Okay, so we might be a little late with this announcement (and someone cancelled while I was writing this post), but we are now very excited (and relieved) to finally announce most of the lineups for our 2013 BrooklynVegan CMJ parties. UNFORTUNATELY THOUGH, we still can't say the venue yet. Stay tuned for that announcement coming Thursday, but we promise it will be fairly convenient.

THE VENUE IS ANNOUNCED: It's Baby's All Right! (146 Broadway in Williamsburg)

here we go...


On FRIDAY (10/18) we're going from noon to 6 PM and kicking things off huge with an acoustic set from The Head and the Heart at noon (the same Sub Pop-signed band whose upcoming shows at Terminal 5, Webster Hall and MHOW are all sold out).

Kirin J Callinan under Yamantaka // Sonic Titan (by Tim Griffin)

From there we change the energy drastically with a set by Kirin J Callinan (who is with a full band this year, unlike last year), Leeds band Eagulls who are followed by Leeds rockers Hookworms, who are followed by theatrical indie-metal-pop-prog band Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, Syrian pop singer Omar Souleyman (!), and finally indie rockers Speedy Ortiz!

Then, on SATURDAY (10/19), we're going 10 straight hours, from noon to 10 PM, with local psych band Spires, followed by the emo-shoegaze of Pity Sex, Australian singer/songwriter Courtney Barnett, the new incarnation of Yuck, goth/noir country balladeer King Dude, Relapse-signed shoegazers Nothing, a SPECIAL heavy GUEST that will be announced Friday night, alt-folk singer Torres, folk-y emo-y rockers Hop Along, a solo set from Superchunk's Mac McCaughn, and the NYC debut of Ex Hex -- the new band of Mary Timony (Wild Flag, Helium, Autoclave)!

UPDATE: Joanna Gruesome, Public Service Broadcasting, Drowners & more added! Party now goes till 2am.

Both of these shows are 100% FREE, no RSVP necessary. No Arcade Fire. No Banksy. There is free food and drink and ink though.

Come by and pick up a free Raw Revolution bar to snack on and a complimentary Sailor Jerry rum drink, AND A FREE TATTOO. Sailor Jerry is bringing in Three Kings Tattoo artists who will be giving out complimentary tattoos right there in our venue (again)! Tattoos are first come, first served, as is admission to the shows.

To recap:
1) One late announcement
2) Two free shows
3) 18 artists
4) Free drinks
5) Free tattoos till 6pm each day (designs pictured above)
6) A venue to be announced Thursday Baby's All right
7) A special guest playing Friday to be announced Thursday night Omar Souleyman

9) JUST ADDED: four more bands Saturday!

And thanks to Vinny's Music for the gear!

Terrible lineups. The Head and the Heart, really?

pathetic lineups. who are these people anyway?

I'm guessing that the free shows 4:37 and 4:39 are putting on will be a lot better.

"These people" are some pretty excellent bands, most of whom are well known to readers of this site.

Pretty cool, if you're in the neighborhood you could just pop in, hang out, leave, whatever! Unless these fill up immediately and people just sit there all day, either way I'm going to a corn maze this weekend so I won't be going, but have fun to those who do!

Obviously, only one stage this year wherever it is. Too bad about Friday, would take the afternoon off but have to sit through Syrian music to get from Yamantaka to Speedy Ortiz.

I was waiting for this type article and I have gained some useful information from this site. Thanks for sharing this information

This comment is about as mediocre as it gets. just because the comment has sarcasm and a rhetorical twist doesn't make this any less of a sad attempt at criticism. You sought to highlight a gimmick and all the obnoxious bullsh*t and name-calling in the world couldn't make this comment less boring than it already is. :)
