CMJ 2008 Wrap Up

I enjoyed CMJ quite a bit this year. I think it’s because I was able to spend some time with some pretty spectacular people.

Thanks especially to Bryan Bruchman. CMJ wouldn’t have been the same without you!

New finds (they were sooooo good – you need to listen for yourselves):
Wye Oak
The Muslims

I wish I had seen more of this band and found out what they were going to do with all those pedals:
The Depreciation Guild

My favorites (always!)
Pela – They NEVER disappoint. Love these boys 🙂

Drink Up Buttercup – So much energy, so much fun!
Hopewell. Impressive – they played so loud I could hear them through the wall of the venue after I had turned the corner outside – YES!

These are some wonderful people that support Indie Music – check them out!
