Shannon & the Clams, Drinks, Mild High Club, Whitney, Cloud Castle Lake & more playing Levitation CMJ showcase
Cloud Castle Lake
As mentioned, Ringo Deathstarr’s CMJ schedule includes a show at Rough Trade on October 17 which turns out to be this year’s Levitation Fest showcase. It’s a pretty killer bill that also includes Shannon and the Clams, Drinks (aka Cate Le Bon and Tim Presley), Mild High Club, Whitney (ex-Smith Westerns), Cheatahs, Stealing Sheep, Louisville, KY’s Murals, Irish trio Cloud Castle Lake, and California band Residuals. It’s an early start (5:30 PM doors) and tickets go on sale Wednesday (9/30) at noon.
Cloud Castle Lake released the Dandelion EP in 2014 which drew comparisons to Sigur Ros and Radiohead and you can stream it, and this year’s “Glacier” single, below. Their other CMJ shows include The Flat on October 14 (6:45 PM) with Her Royal Harness, Miya Folick and Avec Sands; and then a free show that same day (10/14) at The Delancey which is an all-Irish lineup with Fang Club, Sleep Thieves, Ham Sandwich and Le Galaxie.
