CMJ is quickly approaching us folks-

On one hand a lot of the shows during CMJ are free- on the other hand you have to have special invites, passwords, and sometimes a little bit of luck to gain passage into some of the best engagements this city has to offer during one of it's most hectic music-loving weeks. PHEEW! i am so excited though. Somehow your body just finds the energy to carry you through that week and when it is over you feel like no show you go to see will ever top what you just experienced. Or at least that was me last year. (The Rapture, The Knife, Girl Talk, Cold War Kids, Elvis Perkins...!!!) One of my favorite experiences was the free in studio sessions that KEXP hosts. Not only do you get to see your favorite DJs up close and personal but the bands were fantastic. (Forward Russia! kicked all kinds of fantastic'ness-Tokyo Police Club-Hot Chip-Rosewood Thieves) HURRY AND SIGN UP NOW! Spots are already filling up-Band of Horses for example on Friday is already full. A lot of acts have yet to be announced but that shouldn't stop you, each and every one is sure to be worth it. Plus it is FREE....and KEXP! Bring it CMJ! And in the meantime you can keep yourself pre-occupied with their latest edition of KEXP instudio sessions:
