The Annex: Apache Beat (let me down)

Spent the day at my very own day show! Women killed it, only 12 more chances to see them this week! Went to catch some Kiwi action at The Delancey courtesy of Rhys Darby (Murray, from Flight of the Conchords) and The Naked and Famous. It was as hot as New Zealand in there so I booked it over to Red Bull/KCRW space for Wild Light (meh), Cheeseburger (they’re messy), and Vivian Girls (could somebody in the crowd please encourage these girls to show some oomph in their set???). Then went to the debacle that was the Stereogum after party at Webster without seeing a single band!
Bryan (aka the busiest man at CMJ – ed.) says:
Pianos for Holy Moly, the Shackeltons, Au, and Emmy the Great, with a quick stop into Pat’s show at Cake Shop for the Secret Life of Sofia (yes, I really did break my boycott and go in there, oh well). Then Marnie Stern studio performance at WNYU before listening to random people play around with the Korg gear at Red Bull Space while enjoying tacos and beer and trying to steal Tigers. The Serious Business showcase at Pianos (of course) where I saw Benji Cossa, Rocketship Park, Two Man Gentlemen Band, (missed Higgins), Unsacred Hearts, Looker, the Octagon, and the Homosexuals. In there somehow I managed to run to Rehab to catch half of Tim Williams and Mason Proper’s sets. then I ended the night at the Stereogum party at the Studio at Webster Hall where I saw Ponytail, Marnie Stern (much sleepier this time), and finally Crystal Stilts.
