GEMS / Wilsen / John Murry @ Mercury Lounge, 10/17/2013
As one of the biggest "indie" booking agencies, The Windish Agency had a lot of bands at CMJ this year, like usual. Their official showcase at Mercury Lounge on Thursday, 10/17 presented some of their newer talent: the atmospheric, downcast songs of MOJO-approved San Franciscan John Murry; ethereal duo Wilsen (who covered Grimes' "Oblivion"), and DC duo GEMS who were one of the more talked-about bands of the fest. We also caught Dan Croll and Bad Suns, and pictures from their sets are in this post.
