It’s with pride that I present to you my official BV-BBG CMJ showcase lineup, going down at Union Pool on Saturday, 10/23 at 7pm:

The Body
Cough
Inter Arma
Royal Thunder
+more TBA!

The Body released (to quote myself from June) “one of the most unrelenting, riveting, odd and just plain special records of the year” in All The Waters Of The Earth Turned To Blood. Both, Cough, and Inter Arma hail from the uber-fertile Richmond scene with the former recently signing to Relapse for their new fist-shaking sludgy-doom offering Ritual Abuse and the latter releasing the underrated but excellent Sundown via Forcefield Records. Atlanta’s Royal Thunder deliver blues-y doom riffs fronted by a smokey female voice… think Black Math Horseman or Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde fronting Black Sabbath.

And most importantly, every band on the bill have an INCENDIARY live show, so it’ll be worth the measly $5 it’ll cost you to get in. Limited CMJ badges will also be let in the door. Drink specials TBA.

If you are a fan of heavy music and particularly the heavy underground, I hope to see you there.

If you aren’t a fan of heavy music (or even if you are), check out the other official BrooklynVegan CMJ showcase happening at MHOW two nights earlier. Day parties TBA.
