Besides the killer Coalesce show at Europa, and the upcoming Shrinebuilder @ Le Poisson Rouge, you can mark you calendar with ANOTHER important day before the year is up.

RelapseI am proud to announce my FIRST OFFICIAL CMJ SHOWCASE (BrooklynVegan – BBG) which we are co-presenting with the good folks at Relapse Records. It’s scheduled to go down on Friday October 23rd as part of an all day extravaganza at Fontana’s on the Lower East Side!

CMJThe “official” part of the party kicks off at 7:30pm. That’s the part of the night that costs money and will be listed in the CMJ guide (and is open to a limited number of CMJ badgeholders for free). Earlier in the day we’ll be hosting the “unofficial” part, a 100% free day party at the same venue.

The shows will feature guitar cabinets courtesy of our good friends at Main Drag Music, stiff drinks by Hornitos, as well as FREE Miller Lite and High Life and Vitamin Water while supplies last! (more sponsors TBA if we get them)

The daytime lineup (one of three BrooklynVegan day parties during CMJ this year) will be announced in full soon, but will focus on the heavy side of things (and is partly revealed below). The official show lineup (one of two BrooklynVegan official showcases this year) has a little bit of everything for the heavy music fan: thundering political deathgrind, rumbling doom, crusty grindcore, and even thrashy-ska performed by a man with a prosthetic leg! It goes like this….

That’s seven bands for only $12 (a limited number of CMJ badges also get in), and doors open at 7PM, just 30 minutes after the day party in the same room. Upstairs, (heavy) drinkers will be treated to the soothing sounds of Bloodbath & Beyond (aka Brandon Stosuy and DJ Shark) on the 1’s and 2’s, as well as a cast of “celebrity” DJs, who will rotate in and out throughout the night.

Again, full lineup on the early part is TBD, but block off that afternoon (21+). Here’s a preview of who’s playing so far…
