My Crazy Conflicted CMJ Sched and Some Tuesday Picks

CMJ 2009

You can view my full CMJ 2009 over here (though its so crazy and conflicted, it’s not really of that much use).

The “CMJ Flickr Flyer Set” is now well over a hundred items, you can check the whole thing out over here.

Here are some of my top CMJ picks for Tuesday night (Oct 20):

Beat Radio – Glasslands Gallery
Care Bears On Fire – Bowery Ballroom
Black Swan Green – Delancey
Surfer Blood – Santos Party House
Laura Marling – MHOW
Atlas Sound – LPR
The Western States Motel – Local 269
The Antlers – MHOW
Fanfarlo – MHOW
Here We Go Magic – Webster Hall (free w/ iPhone app or RSVP here)
Jukebox The Ghost – Bowery
Lovvers – Santos Party House
Heavy Trash – Santos Party House

Also going on today (Oct 20), during the day, and worth checking out:

The Music Slut/Sneak Attack Day Party – Cake Shop
Pop Tarts Suck Toasted CMJ Day Party – Pianos

On a final note, a lot of these bands, have many CMJ shows lined up and/or visit NYC often, the one exception being The Western States Motel, whose EP Painted Birds Flying In The Orange Mirror Sun was one of the great unsung short players of 2008. Catch them tonight for their one and only CMJ appearance at the Local 269 (269 E. Houston at Suffolk).
