CMJ 2006 - Day 3

Quick thoughts today are going to be especially quick.

12 bands. Yesterday was what CMJ is all about.

Forward, Russia! -> Tokyo Police Club -> Dappled Cities Fly (Good call Sean, loved them), Canada -> Tall Hands -> Bound Stems -> Annuals -> Delicious dinner at Lombardi's (where sitting a few tables away was the cop kid from Locke's backstory on Lost, the Lost nerd in me was thrilled) -> Tried to see Stars of Track and Field (stupid Crash Manshion was almost an hour behind) -> Oh No, Oh My! -> Born Ruffians - > THE THERMALS!!!!!! -> The Album Leaf -> The Shins.

Exhaustion and sickness caught up with me this morning and I slept in a bit. Missing the first half of BV's dream-like showcase today, but should get there in time for Oxford Collapse and The Thermals. Bands you should see tonight: Benzos acoustic @ White Rabbit, Aloha, Sam Champion, The Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower, Born Ruffians, and of course, Bound Stems.

nlizdYou didn't miss much w/ Stars of Track and Field. I thought they were pretty boring. The hard rock band before them were surprisingly good though, in a Hollywood Strip kind of way.
