Tumblr CMJ showcase at the knitting factory featuring Doldrums and Mr. MFing Esquire
When I wake up in NYC I feel like doing as much as humanly possible.
I started with a brunch on Wall St. which was unremarkable other than having to send back four hard poached eggs.
After that I hopped the J train and met with some Pittsburgh buddies at the Delancey for the Aussie BBQ (CMJ Showcase). I saw some interesting rockers downstairs - had to kind of dance around the guitarist who was jumping through the crowd and colliding with random people in order to get upstairs. The deck was gorgeous - with free bangers and some magical slaw which I neglected to photograph. The weather and food were delicious but even better than that I got to meet a couple people who were connected with the event wherever I went. Will have a lot of fun checking out business card links and running features on these former strangers!
We walked a short way to Arlene's Grocery for the No Pulp Showcase featuring Deathrow Tull, and bumped into the homies M.O.D from Boston! - The homey and former DUTB interviewee Lil Texas informed us about a show that night at Cameo Art Gallery, which we certainly did not miss. After shooting some photos on a rooftop in alphabet city we hopped in a cab down to Beekman's Beer garden for a private event, on our way down to Williamsburg for the Knitting Factory Tumblr Showcase which we heard about through our connect at Audiofemme.

This is actually the second band I saw at CMJ because the first band was too wild to get a photo of. This band is playing upstairs at the Delancey on Saturday around 3pm.
This is the band I saw at Arlene's. These guys were really tight and high energy.
Longarms - Morning Stretches After killing it in Brooklyn at the secret trap showcase with M.O.D at Cameo Art Gallery I rolled to Wall st. to the Ulysses for some late night drinking activities. Around 5:30 I stumbled into Longarm's Lower East Side apt. (thanks bruv) and had a serious experience with a couch. Viva NYC! Tips
