Lets face it, we're barely into CMJ 2012 and already in overload. So, we've decided to add a healthy alternative to the glut of Friday night showcases...Welcome The un-CMJ party at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn on Friday (10/19)!
Sure we have some of the same things at our party that makes CMJ great- complimentary PBR, Sailor Jerry and Mercy Drink while supplies last, as well as some buzzy bands, but The un-CMJ has something else to offer as well... a chance for YOU get in on the action! Infinity Spaceship, which features current & former members of Primitive Weapons, Nakatomi Plaza, Ludlow Lions, On The Might of Princes, Ghost Robot Ninja Bear and The Judas Knife, will headline the evening with one of their signature punk/hardcore/indie karaoke sets!
Sign-up to get in on the action - the Infinity Spaceship karaoke shows are always an amazing time. Check out some video of Infinity Spaceship in action below. What song are you going to sing?
Absolutely Free is the new project from 80% of the band known as DD/MM/YYYY, and the band is preparing to release their debut 12" via One Big Silence, the label run by Mike of Fucked Up. Stream half of that release, the song "UFO", which recently got 'best new track' at Pitchfork, below.
As recently discussed, Aussie guitarist Kirin J. Callinan is in town for CMJ and we can't wait to check out his gothic soundscapes in one of a very few select appearances the show.
This event goes down TOMORROW NIGHT (10/19) and will cost you absolutely nothing (it's absolutely free) to get in! So head to Saint Vitus for the 7:30PM opening ad grab a free drink at the bar. Prepare by streaming some material from both bands and checking out Infinity Spaceship below.
