CMJ ’08: Friendy Fires, Little Boots, Amazing Baby Get This Party Started

We can’t catch all the hot CMJ show shows on our own, so Stereogum asked Abbey Braden to send in pics and video of notable sets from days one and two. According to this post title, her itinerary favors bands with Adjective Noun names. On Tuesday evening, before our laaaate night shinding, Abbey caught Violens and Amazing Baby at The Annex in the LES, and Lissy Trullie opening for Lykke Li at the V party. The next day A Sunny Day In Glasgow, Motel Motel, and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart were highlights at After The Jump at Knitting Factory. Back in Tribeca, Friendly Fires and Little Boots rocked the GrandLife/Fixed shindig.
