Joanna Gruesome / Eagulls @ Pianos 10/16/2013

The biggest surprise for me at CMJ so far had to be Welsh band Joanna Gruesome, who I caught yesterday (10/16) at the Kanine Records/SESAC party at Pianos (one of many CMJ shows the band has). I arrived a few more minutes before they started, and the crowd was already packed in all the way back to the door. And once they came on, the buzz for this band became pretty clear. From the sounds of their noise pop debut Weird Sister (out now on Slumberland), I expected something a bit more restrained and stripped down, but Joanna Gruesome are a beast of a live band. – [Andrew Sacher]

For those looking to catch some of the more hotly-tipped 2013 CMJ acts on the early side, the Kanine Records / SEASAC day party at Pianos on Wednesday was the place to do it, with sets from UK acts Joanna Gruesome, Eagulls, The History of Apple Pie, and Atlanta’s Mood Rings, plus CMJ vets Eternal Summers, Bleeding Rainbow and Beach Day. Pictures from the Kanine party are in this post.

You can catch Eagulls today (10/18) at the free BrooklynVegan day party at brand new Williamsburg venue, Baby’s All Right (the venue’s first-ever show). Eagulls play at 1:30 PM, so come if you can. I caught them Wednesday night and thought they were really good angsty, postpunk-y rock.

As for Joanna Gruesome, they’re definitely one of the Bands to See this week and you’ve still got a few chances to do so — including the just-announced midnight slot at our takeover of Baby’s All Right on Saturday (10/19), playing in between Drowners and Public Service Broadcasting. The whole day is free for anyone 21 and over, no RSVP or CMJ badge needed.
