Here comes CMJ07

Every year CMJ takes over NYC for a week.

This year, it's taking the blog over too. Here's the deal: I've gotten a press badge to take in as many shows as I can over the five nights next week, and I'll be blogging it over at imeem's CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival Group. I'll probably cross-post everything here too, so that will make up for my laziness in writing about concerts lately.

I just spent a few minutes unsuccessfully googling this, but I think my first CMJ experience was seeing Elliott Smith in 1998. This year I can see just about any band in the world (for real, the roster is pretty daunting), so I've been spending hours trying to narrow down the options. If you have any suggestions, don't hesitate to send them along.

I'd like to say thanks to imeem for hooking me up. I'm on there as the fairly ominous-sounding "H. L. I. T." It's pretty fun though. And, my very first friend is Justice! [their webmaster, says Amy the spoilsport.] Which gives me an excuse to post this great youtube of D.A.N.C.E. Check it out, and check back tomorrow for Friday's tune.

Since I set this up for you, I know that you are gonna hook me up for a show or two at least. I wanna go to Voxtrot Tuesday nite at Bowery. Much thanks.

If you set it up for me, surely you can set up yourself. I haven't decided yet, but I'm thinking of giving the Tuesday night Bowery showcase a miss, since it seems like most of the blog world is going to be there already.

Well, there were only a few passes to go around and since I don't do a blog...

I did suggest and vote for yours over others though. Also, if you are missing Bowery on Tuesday...
