If you have the advantage of being free in the afternoons during CMJ week, day parties offer an easy way to catch many of the most talked about bands at the fest, usually for free with maybe some free drinks/food too. Such was the case on Wednesday (10/13) when Pianos (Kanine/Dr. Martens party) and Cake Shop (Breakthru Radio party) — both on the same block of Ludlow St. — offered up Car Seat Headrest, Mothers, Shopping, Windhoney, Yung (all of whom are playing free BV CMJ parties this weekend), as well as UK bands Pinact and Oscar,, Aussie duo Hockey Dad, Baltimore indiepop act Expert Alterations, as well as Eternal Summers, Beverly, Diet Cig, Palehound and more. (Front bar DJs include Kip from Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Kevin of Mercury Girls, and yours truly). If you weren’t able to make it out, chances are most of these bands playing again. It’s CMJ.
