IMG_8929

Highlights:
Drink Up Buttercup at Brooklyn Brewery and The Delancey (it was also really nice to have dinner with you on Friday).
Japandroids – What a night at The Bell House – there was so much stage diving that I had to go and stand on a bench at the side of the venue – fun, fun, fun!
Dinowalrus at Cake Shop
Kria Brekken at Cameo
Peasant and Blood Warrior at Bruar Falls
Zaza at Cake Shop
Screaming Females at Mercury Lounge
Sian Alice Group at Knitting Factory
Hanging with Bryan and Jenna – you Mainers are a blast 🙂
Running into Chris La Putt at the Marie Stella show at The Delancey – it was good to see you 🙂

Lowlights:
Being trapped in the Mercury Lounge on Wednesday night and missing DUB’s showcase 😦
Running into a friend that I hadn’t seen for months and he was rather hostile to me – hope things get better for you.
One broken laptop
Disrupted F Train service
Being shut out of a few shows that I would have liked to shoot

All in all a pretty good time was had.

Many thanks to Prefix for letting me cover CMJ for them!

  1. This list sounds spot on. Sorry to hear ’bout your laptop. And yes the F train is the devil >> L train is no better.

    Was good to see you at The Studio at Webster Hall Maryanne for those brief moments.
