One of the best parts about CMJ is the day shows that are often free and give you a chance to see live music and grab a bev on your lunch break (or call in sick). To give you a chance to plan your early afternoon ahead of time, we're giving you tomorrow's (Thursday's) daytime picks today (Wednesday). You can browse our full NYC show calendar for all shows, and here are some highlights...

The Bots, TV Girl, Gems, The Preatures, Wild Club, Holychild, The Everywheres, School of Night, J Fernandez, The Range @ Pianos
Fellow music blog I Guess I'm Floating is back with its Floatingfest CMJ party on both floors of Pianos. A good chance to check out Australian CMJ buzz-band The Preatures and LA's TV Girl (one of our CMJ picks).

Satellite, The Darcys, Keren Ann, Mood Rings, Kan Wakan @ Ace Hotel (FREE)
If you like your day parties somewhere a bit fancier, you can catch Atlanta's atmospheric Mood Rings, Canadians The Darcys, Keren Ann and more for free in the lobby of the posh Ace Hotel. Music starts early here (11 AM).

Caged Animals, Echo Friendly, School of Night, Julia Weldon, Bent Shapes, The Moondoggies, J Fernandez, Slow Down Molasses @ Cake Shop (FREE)
This is NYC Taper's annual day party and he's always got a lot of good bands playing, including Boston's Bent Shapes and locals Caged Animals. Can't make the show? He'll have downloadable recordings sometime after.

Ski Lodge, Au Revoir Simone, Saint Rich, Wild Club @ Judson Memorial Church (FREE)
Broadcasting from Judson Memorial Church (part of CMJ Fest HQ), KEXP brings in some of the week's biggest bands for live on-air performances that you can attend too.

Half Moon Run, Ghost Wave, Traumahelikopter, Birth of Joy, Prata Vetra, Instrumenti @ Knitting Factory (FREE)
Filter Magazine brings its Culture Collide festival to NYC in day party form with a pretty good line-up, including Montreal's Half Moon Run and New Zealand's Ghost Wave who are better than their name may have led to to believe.

Jacco Gardner, Ghost Wave, Tweens, Doug Keith, Casual Sex, John Murry, Ski Lodge @ Mission Sound Recording (FREE)
This is a pretty killer line-up, playing at Williamsburg recording studio Mission Sound Recording. Jacco Gardner and Tweens both made our list of 30 Artists to Check Out and we dig Ski Lodge and Ghost Wave as well.

Ratking, Ava Luna, Jamaican Queens, Krill, Calvin Love, Crispy Hexx, Young Oprah Winfrey @ Muchmore's (FREE)
This free My Social List day party features indie rappers Ratking, funk-punk collective Ava Luna, nasally indie rockers Krill, lo-fi pop dude Calvin Love and more. Noon-6.

Kirin J Callinan, TOPS, Pegasus Warning, Shy Hunters, Weeknight @ Bowery Electric ($5)
Sam Mickens is throwing this $5 day party at Bowery Electric (or free with CMJ badge), that's being headlined at 5 PM by crazy weird one-man band Kirin J Callinan, who is sure to put the "party" in "day party." Arbutus-signed Montreal band TOPS is on right before him at 4:15 and they're worth catching too.

Psychic Twin, Diamond Bones, Manicanparty, Palehound, Dark North, Clementine and the Galaxy, And the Kids
The band we most want to see at this one is Palehound, who is about to release her Bent Nail EP (stream it on Stereogum) on Exploding In Sound Records (the former home of her friends Speedy Ortiz). It's an excellent EP, pulling equally from quiet anti-folk and abrasive noise rock. She's on at 4 PM.

School of Night @ Mercury Lounge - 10/11/13
School of Night

The Antlers have been pretty quiet lately because they're in the studio working on a new album, but one of the members, Darby Cicci, has been less quiet with his new side project, School of Night. His debut self-titled EP just came out this week (10/15) via Minus Green, and if you're a fan of the airy, layered indie pop that The Antlers make (or Grizzly Bear), you'll probably dig this EP too. The whole thing can be streamed, along with the video for its track "Fire Escape" (directed by Darby himself), below.

Just ahead of the EP's release, School of Night played a Mercury Lounge show last Friday (10/11), where Antlers singer Peter Silberman made a guest appearance during his set. Pictures from that show are in this post. Grand Resort opened, but we missed them.

School of Night also has more shows scheduled, including two this week for CMJ. Both shows happen on Thursday (10/17). First, he plays the I Guess I'm Floating party at Pianos (he's on upstairs at 2:30), and then he heads next door to the NYCTaper party at Cake Shop, which he plays at 4:30. Both of those shows are totally free.

All dates are listed, along with full lineups for those shows, more Mercury Lounge pics, EP stream and video, below...

Rose Windows
Rose Windows

As mentioned, Seattle psych band Rose Windows are in NYC this week with Montreal's Suuns, playing Le Poisson Rouge on Wednesday (9/4) (tickets). The band, whose album is out now via Sub Pop (listen via Spotify), will soon be on tour with their Pacific Northwest neighbors, The Moondoggies, which will include a stop in NYC during CMJ. While both band's CMJ schedules are still being worked out, they'll play Death by Audio on October 17 as part of Sub Pop little brother label Hardly Art's "Non CMJ CMJ Showcase" that will also include Portland's Hausu, Australia's Lost Animal and locals, The Beets (who are playing shows too).

No word on advance tickets (most DbA shows don't have them anyway) but all Rose Windows and Moondoggies dates are listed below.

Cymbals Eat Guitars @ Brooklyn Bowl in August (more by Oren Loloi)
Cymbals Eat Guitars

By the time Saturday, October 24th gets here, six BrooklynVegan shows will have come and gone. The first is on Tuesday. Then there are two on Thursday (night and day), and three on Friday (day, night, and night). Finally, the seventh and final BV party of CMJ 2009 (which is not technically part of CMJ) is happening Saturday at Pianos, and the 2-stage lineup is:

DOWNSTAIRS @ Pianos on the afternoon of 10/24/2009

1:15 Surf City
2:00 The Moondoggies (Hardly Art)
2:45 Local Natives
3:30 Still Life Still
4:15 Deastro
5:00 Cymbals Eat Guitars
UPSTAIRS @ Pianos on the afternoon of 10/24/2009
1:00 Dave Godowsky
1:45 Sharon Van Etten
2:30 The Smith Westerns
3:15 Pete & The Pirates
4:00 JBM
4:45 Dent May
5:30 Nathaniel Rateliff and The Wheel
Those times are all P.M. It's an afternoon show and it's 100% free. Come hang out.

Not only is this show 100% free, there will be free Miller beer (High Life and Lite) and free Vitamin Water (first come, first served). Same free stuff at all three BrooklynVegan day parties this year (Thursday @ Pianos, Friday @ Fontana's, and Saturday @ Pianos aka this party). Flyer for this party, which was put together in conjunction with Bowery Presents who wanted the same space on the same day (Double Booked!), below.

We talked about Surf City who are from New Zealand, and a bunch about Pete & The Pirates from the UK.

For the Moondoggies, this is one of only two CMJ-time shows. Their other is the official Sub Pop / Hardly Art showcase at Mercury Lounge.

Two bands on this bill are playing two BV parties. LA's Local Natives are also in the loft. Denver's The Wheel are also Tuesday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Still Life Still are that band that new Arts & Crafts band that just came through town. You know Dent May from the roster of Animal Collective's label Paw Tracks.

Dave Godowsky and Sharon Van Etten are both singer-songwriters making their second appearances at BV parties in the upstairs room of Pianos. You may have caught Dave when he opened for Dave Bazan at Bowery Ballroom on Sunday night. You may remember Sharon's voice from the new Antlers record (The Antlers are another band playing the BV show at MHOW).

Ghostly International artist Deastro has a tour coming up with Max Tundra in 2010. Don't wait that long to see him.

The Smith Westerns. You remember them. JBM too. And Cymbals Eat Guitars. Maybe another band TBA (probably). I'm too tired to keep writing. Flyer below!

Hardly Art

Hardly Art is an independent record label based in Seattle, WA. Founded in early 2007 by Sub Pop Records, Hardly Art is run by two full-time employees and is distributed by the Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA) and Sub Pop. The label's name comes from a lyric the song "No Culture Icons" by [ex-Sub Pop band] the Thermals [who are in town], and the unofficial motto for the label is: Quality records for quality people since very recently. [Wikipedia]
The Hardly Art roster is now up to nine bands, the latest addition to which is Brooklyn Band Golden Triangle.

Golden Triangle @ NYU Strawberry Festival 2009 (more by Lauren Monaco)
Golden Triangle

Golden Triangle's upcoming shows include a gig on Saturday, May 9th at Rubulad with the Homosexuals. The band then plays a free show on Tuesday, May 12th at Southpaw with the Phenomenal Handclap Band. They're also scheduled to perform June 12th as part of the Northside Festival (again with The Homosexuals). All tour dates below.

Earlier this year when Golden Triangle were still unsigned, the group won the Dickies Battle of the Bands down at SXSW. The judges for that included Black Bubblegum, GZA, and Randy & Dean of No Age (who, being signed to Sub Pop, are now label cousins with the winning band).

Hardly Art intends to release Golden Triangle's debut full-length in early 2010. Other new signings by Hardly Art include Seattle bands Talbot Tagora and Unnatural Helpers.

Unnatural Helpers are a pretty righteous Seattle punk band with two former members of The Catheters, an ex-Sub Pop band of which I was especially fond and whose presence on the musical scene I miss dearly. Unnatural Helpers is ex-Catheters guitarists Brian Standeford (also of Idle Times and Tall Birds) and Leo Gephardt (Tall Birds), The Dutchess and the Duke's Kimberley Morrison on bass, though the band is the brain child of Dean Whitmore, who drums and sings. [Seattle Weekly]
A new track by Talbot Tagora (who named themselves after a type of car), "Internet Fixture," is currently posted at The Fader (and above). Their album Lessons in the Woods or a City will be released July 21st on CD and LP. From the label's more established acts, new discs are also planned for Le Loup and the Dutchess & the Duke by the end of this year.

Only one other Hardly Art band has an NYC date coming up: indie-pop trio Pretty & Nice play Union Hall on May 14th with the Dig and Middle Distance Runner. Tickets are on sale.

All upcoming Hardly Art tour dates below...
