CMJ has come and gone, and judging by the half hazy and dead feeling afflicting many in the office this morning, I’m not sure if that is entirely a bad thing. In past years, the annual blitz of bands on NYC have sent us jettisoning from club to club, taking queues from perfectly timed schedules in order to slam down the perfect kind of rock cocktail night after never-ending night. From the Mercury Lounge, down to the Knitting Factory, to hot damn…got to haul it over to Brooklyn by midnight! As Baeble contributor Jason Newman put it, “CMJ can be a Sisyphean task of frustration. For many, the festival is marked as much by what they missed as to what they saw.”

That’s why we decided to stay put, so to speak, for this year’s event, and let the talent find us. Teaming up with our friends over at The Fader, we set our cameras up in an empty storefront in the Lower East Side for a four day run of performances by the likes of Cut Off Your Hands, Cool Kids, HEALTH, Dragons of Zynth, Atlas Sound, White Denim, Drug Rug, Yeasayer, Wild Light, and The Checks (to name only a few).

In addition, we also hustled over to the Bowery Ballroom Thursday evening in time to catch the sold out World’s Fair Showcase, featuring performances by British Sea Power, Pela, 1990s, Tiny Masters of Today, The Grey Race, and Stardeath and the White Dwarves. Stay tuned to Baeble over the next coming weeks for exclusive footage from these CMJ showcases. – David Pitz
