It took us a minute to fully realize it, but since losing Webster Hall, Bowery Presents has been booking shows at the similarly sized Manhattan venue Stage 48. You may already realize this. You may not care. Regardless, it's happening. Is it temporary? We don't know. Have you been to the venue? What do you think?
We actually have a pair of tickets to give away for the 9/9 Justin Townes Earle show. Want them? Details on how to enter to win below...

Takka Takka, Dave Godowsky & Kaiju @ Pianos (BV CMJ) Oct 20, 2007 (CRED)
Characters from Kaiju Big Battel were on hand at two of the three BrooklynVegan day parties during CMJ this year. You already saw a photo featuring the bouncer at the Friday R Bar party (where Yeasayer & Black Kids & many others played). Now this post is full of pictures that were taken the next day at Pianos - some featuring members of Takka Takka, and two with (their friend) singer-songwriter Dave Godowsky (who played upstairs at noon at that party).
Kaiju Big Battel are also featured in the new Bloc Party video. That video, and more photos (including one with Jaime of Islands), below....

As you know, I'm throwing a total of five shows during CMJ this year. The first is Tuesday night October 16th - an official showcase that you can buy tickets for. The second is the very next day - a 2-floor (whole club) FREE day party at Pianos on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
The third party is Friday October 19th at R Bar - a new-ish bar & venue on the Lower East Side that features fancy red decor, large photos of Debbie Harry on the wall, and stripper poles. It's going to be awesome.
