Born Ruffians @ CMJ

Toronto's Born Ruffians are coming to NYC for CMJ. Musebox (here's the old site, Myspace) are having a party at Lit on Thurs Nov 2 and they've invited Born Ruffians and Whitey. Surely there will be more. This date is in the middle of Born Ruffians tour with Hot Chip and Shy Child, who are playing at Webster Hall on the 2nd, so....?

Canada continues to impress. Born Ruffians are one of the best bands I've stumbled upon in a while. Highly recommended for fans of Of Montreal. Take Of Montreal's dancier tunes and sprinkle in some surf rock and off you go. They also kinda remind me of CYHSY (read: Hi-pitch vocals, "jangly" rock). Listen to the songs from their Piecing It Together 7" at their Myspace. So good. Their self-titled 6-song EP is being released by Warp on Oct 17.

As if there weren't already enough to do on Nov 2. Man oh man.

On the list.
