Stereogum Does CMJ: Islands/Professor Murder/Muscles/Flosstradamus/Datarock @ Various Venues, Various Times, NYC

Afterpartying on the last night of CMJ was sort of a doomed enterprise; after catching the Forms, we made our way out to Williamsburg, arriving well in advance of the Black Kids/Peter & Bjorn (no John) Almost Gold party at Galapagos. With time to kill, we caught Flosstradamus (that’s them above) and tried to stick out ’til Matt & Kim but felt it wise to get into P&B as early as possible. After watching a few songs of Black Kids, the not-great crowd began to wear us down, and being in no fit state to handle much of anything, we hopped a cab to see Professor Murder for a sec at BV’s thing, and then went home. So here you’ll find a couple of pics from afterpartying, along with other assorted odds ‘n’ ends we’ve accumulated over the week, both via our big cams and that of Abbey Braden. Plus, video of the mighty Islands, of Datarock doing the worm, and of Muscles performing “Ice Cream.”

We’ll get it started with some vid of Islands…
