Band We Like
October 13, 2013

Right now, I’m going to talk about the OH MY ROCKNESS OFFICIAL CMJ PARTY! I put it in ALL CAPS AND I hyperlinked it, man. That’s how important it is for us to get in some major chill time in together on Tuesday.
The 6 bands playing the party we made (all by ourselves!) are really loud and punk and we think they’re super great. These are the 6 bands you should really try to see during CMJ... and they are therefore excluded from my forthcoming list of 10 bands you should really try to see during CMJ... because we can’t make that list and just put in every band playing our own party... that would be lame.
So here’s how this party planning went down. I said, “Hunters, I really like you. And I wrote about you on my dynamic muzik blob. Do you want to play our CMJ show?” And they said YES! And then I asked PUP and Kirin J Callinan and Ovlov and Greys and Big Ups the same thing. And they all said YES!
The bands playing our party (not just for CMJ - we turn 9 years old this month too - which is totally true and totally insane) were picked because we really like them and we believe in their goodness and we’ve been writing nice things about them on our site for most of this year. We’re not just throwing our name on something for the sake of throwing our name on something. You know what I mean? Yeah. You know. Because you and I get each other.
And thus, to make a not-even-really-a-story short, you should come hang with us at Cameo Gallery on Tuesday, October 15th and enjoy Hunters + Kirin J Callinan + PUP + Ovlov+ Greys + Big Ups with us. Stream this playlist I made for you.
