A CMJ '07 Post

Anyone still out there? Needless to say, VERY VERY VERY busy recently. Although, I did get to see Nada Surf (Maybe my fav Nada show to date! New songs were solid.) and The Jealous Girlfriends (liked them much more than the last time I saw them at Mercury) at Union Hall last week. So while I have a second to get a post up, here's where you can go see some past KNOCKOUT bands this week:

Mussels - Midway on Sat @ 8. *Highly Recommended

The Aeroplane Pageant show at Union Hall is with two other KO bands, The Mugs and Beat Radio. Hey out-of-towners, if you want to experience the best in NYC rock, it doesn't get much better than that. Also *Highly Recommended.

Beat Radio, Sure Juror, and The Diggs are among the many Underrated/Indaba/This Side Up loft bands. Info here.

The Diggs are also playing @ Pat's showcase with Bridges & Powerlines.

You can also catch The Mugs at Gothamist/WOXY @ White Rabbit. Info here. Quick sidenote - White Rabbit was amazing last year. Spent almost as much time there as I spent at Fader.

Other KOers that are playing at White Rabbit - The Muggabears and Charles Bissell.

More info on Sound Fix/CMJ here.

You can go see The Party Faithful (formerly Lolita Bras) at my favorite NYC hangout, Matchless on Thurs.

The Lisps are playing @ the After The Jump show @ The Yard.

Info on all of the ATJ shows, including the one that The Antlers are playing at, can be found here.
