Pissed Jeans @ Knitting Factory – 10/18/12

Between Pissed Jeans, METZ, and King Tuff, half of this year’s Sub Pop CMJ showcase was basically a punk show, a pretty awesome move in 2012 for the label that over two decades ago brought us Mudhoney and a pre-major label Nirvana. The lineup was rounded out by the less punk but still great Daughn Gibson (who we also caught at Villain), Poor Moon and Debo Band. It went down on the Thursday (10/18) of CMJ at Knitting Factory, and we stopped by for headliners Pissed Jeans, who you can see pictures of in this post.

METZ, who we missed at that show but saw when they slayed at our Friday day party, are continuing to tour (they play Chicago this weekend) and will be back in NYC for amazingly-not-sold-out shows on November 19 at Mercury Lounge with Hunters and November 20 at Knitting Factory. Tickets for the Mercury Lounge show and the Knitting Factory show are still available. If you missed these guys during CMJ (and even if you didn’t), these shows are highly recommended.
