Next week, NYC’s streets will be teeming with a mix of earnest collegiate indie rock aficionados and grizzled music biz veterans. There will be wonderful lineups at all sorts of venues, and if you pick the right show you may just see a band that will be written about on a blog the next day. Very exciting!
Incidentally, that will happen this week, and every week before and after until The Reckoning, but only next week will be called CMJ. And so, it is next week that Stereogum — in conjunction with our friends at Domino/Ribbon Music, PopGun, Todd P, et al — will help present you with an early-week kick-off and your best possible options for music and life enjoyment.
This year we’re basing our operations at our base of operations, here in the south side of Williamsburg. We’ve renewed our vows with Jake and Rami at PopGun to bring you Titus Andronicus, Delicate Steve, Chelsea Wolfe, Mr. Dream, Cuckoo Chaos, and Hollerado at Glasslands on Tuesday 10/18, and on Wednesday 10/19 we are joining forces with Domino/Ribbon Music, Todd P, and Software, for a very special event at 285 Kent: featuring Twin Sister, Deradoorian (Dirty Projectors), DJ sets from Animal Collective’s Deakin and Geologist, and two SPECIAL GUESTS we’ll tell you more about when are are legally allowed to do so.
The events’ ticket prices are $15 and $10 respectively, and both have reduced prices for badge-holders. On Wednesday night we’re giving you free vodka from 8-9PM (and reduced price on it the rest of the night) compliments of Titos. These venues are next door to one another, they are one night after the next, they are at the beginning of the week, there will be free drinks, and it would be improper not to join us for this. Hope to see you:
