i’ve been having so much fun being a stay-at-home mom to my cat isabel, i forgot that it’s my fave holiday (after my bday) this week…cmj!
a few posts ago i said that nyc is over, but cmj is one thing keeping the rotten apple alive. besides having every indie artist from every music genre possible that isnt in rehab in concert, cmj is also packed with really awesome workshops and panels for us music geeks, plus partiiiiiiiiies. i’m usually more prepared when cmj rolls around with a physical roster and one in my phone, but FUNemployment has riddled me down to a blob that just sits at home watching “unsung” episodes. as a yogi master, i’m all about acknowledging your shortcomings and immediately changing your situation, so as of today, i’m taking to the cmj skreets and you should too. i’m most excited about the internet show on thursday and kelela and ryan hemsworth on saturday. peep the official cmj schedule here.
i’m not being bossy, but you should prob check these folks out too:
lynette williams (one of the most beautiful voices i’ve ever heard)
res (if you weren’t in her stan club in the early 00s, you missed out on life)
just blaze (legend!)
real estate (for nostalgic purposes)
sweater beats (he dj’d my friend’s party this summer and we all left sweaty and almost nude…thats a good thing)
*editor’s note: if you consider yourself a music fiend, hipster, blipster, indie insider, whatever and don’t have an account with oh my rockness, you’re lying to me and yourself…and i don’t like liars!
