CMJ ’08? I didn’t have a badge! by djtanner
Long ago, I was a KWUR DJ. And got to go to CMJ, with a badge and everything. In those days, banks actually had money. This year, I didn’t have a badge. And look at the banks now…Being in New York, however, I had the opportunity to go to some of the events. The actual DJs have already covered all the bands that I saw, but I did get a nice little recap from some other attendees. There were lots of complaints about this year’s festival, but there were a few stand-outs. So, here are some bands that people were talking about at the after party/various other parties:
-Apparently, it’s mind-blowing that they’re only two people.
Lots of people wanted to see them, but no one I talked to actually did. Most people were waiting until Saturday’s planned rooftop show to see them, but the show got rained out.
So Many Dynamos
-Granted, this is from people who already knew the Dynamos very well. But, apparently, the new album is awesome. And doesn’t come out until February. Smarmy bastards.
-Everybody I spoke to saw them. Suprisingly, everyone came out alive.
