Tonight is probably the apex for CMJ, with no shortage of shows to choose from. If you didn’t see Savages at our day party today, they play Mercury Lounge tonight (midnight), which is sold out but will be accepting a few badges… go early.

BrooklynVegan is throwing a free party tonight at Saint Vitus with awesome Canadian krautrock-lovers Absolutely Free (ex-DD/MM/YYYY, incredible live), Kirin J Callinan and punk rock karaoke band Infinity Spaceship, plus complimentary PBRSailor Jerry and Mercy Drink while supplies last. Fun starts at 7:30 PM.

There is also a full night of Canadian bands (including another chance to see Absolutely Free) at the M for Montreal showcase at Arlene’s Grocery. Come early (6 PM) for their free poutine party with Tops, Karim Ouellet and Ariane Moffatt, and then stick around ($10, or CMJ badge) for Royal Canoe, Mozart’s Sister, Doldrums, Moon King, Plaster, and Blue Hawaii.

Of course, tonight’s toughest ticket is probably Pitchfork’s party at new Williamsburg venue Villain, with Death Grips, DIIV, Joey Bada$$, Holy Other, METZ, Merchandise, Daughn Gibson, Hundred Waters, and Angel Haze. It’s totally free and open to the public. You know the drill, get there early (doors at 8 PM). Expect madness for Merchandise and Death Grips at the very least.
