CMJ 2008 kicked off on Tuesday. Lots of parties with lots of bands trying to become the next big thing all over New York City's great venues from smally-small to large. This year is going to be light for me unfortunately, dammit stupid life. Won't even be in town for Friday and Saturday (my birthday). Gonna try to fit as much great music in the time I have though.
Night one I took in the Brooklyn Vegan showcase at the Music Hall Of Williamsburg. Only caught the first three bands which was a disappointment but the quality of the first three was outstanding. Favorite set was by the band from North Cakalacki, The Sammies. This band has some really catchy rock tunes and a live set that one just has to see. A few of my pics are below and the rest are on my flickr.
