I SAY: And CMJ goes out with a whimper with the weakest night of the fest… apart from Justice, which will be near impossible to get into. There’s also the Sub Pop show at Bowery Ballroom and Spoon at Roseland, and but those are going to be almost as difficult. My suggestions… the BV day party (again) to see Foals, Maccabees, Tiny Masters of Today and Georgie James. OR go to the Sound Fix Merge party to see Imperial Teen, Broken West, etc… plus "special guest" (I’m guessing his initials are BD). I will probably head to Mercury Lounge that night for Professor Murder and Tigercity (aka indie Hall & Oates), and hang out in the bar during Harlem Shakes (not my thing). Then maybe the BV afterparty. Though I have a feeling I’ll be dead tired by that point.
