CMJ 2006 – Badges?! We don’t need no steenking badges!!

Post a Comment

Okay, so everyone’s making their list and checkin’ it twice for the annual CMJ
indie music marathon here in NYC coming up at the end of this month. If you’ve already sprung for a badge it’s worth it since there’s tons of excellent badges only shows going on. Some good resources are the CMJ site, Stereogum, and the Battering Room. But if for whatever reason you don’t have a badge, no worries - there’s still plenty of action to take in with no passes required!

This FWYB posting will be listing all of the CMJ related showcases, parties and after parties that come in over the next few weeks that are either Free or less than $12. We’ll be doing updates throughout the Fest so stay tuned and feel free to post in the comments anything going on we may have overlooked.

So far it doesn’t seem like there’s as many day parties as last couple of years (the Fader party is normally interesting during the day) Brooklyn Vegan is throwing a few day parties that look like good bets.

If you're coming in from outside the city a good resource for getting from one point to another is HopStop.

How can i find out more information about the flavorpill halloween party?

Good question Chartrue - there's not much details so far but looks like the flavorpill Halloween party is going to be Kudu, CSS & Spank Rock live with DJs Pink Skull, Bvllets, James Friedman, Tommie Sunshine, Bassnectar (according to Kudu's mySpace). I'll post more info as it comes in but it's definitely going to be a fun party.

Nice list dude, what's the best show to check out during CMJ?

It depends on what you're into but there's alot going on & it's too early. I'm going to wait 'till it's closer to the fest to make a schedule.

The Team Clermont Party (Friday at Arlene's) is also sponsored by Sub Pop, Pulse, and Astralwerks and features Tall Hands, Loney Dear, and The Little Ones. Thanks!

Nice lineup Lucas!
