Panache announces ALL CMJ Events and Set Times

Congrats to Jonathan Toubin Village Voice's Readers Choice BEST DJ IN NEW YORK to New York Night Train’s DJ Jonathan Toubin who was named BEST DJ IN NY by the VILLAGE VOICE. “With most DJs doing their best Steve Aoki impressions in the club, DJ Jonathan Toubin’s “New York Night Train” has felt more refreshing than ever. At his Home Sweet Home residency (beginning at 10:30 p.m. every Friday), Toubin and a slew of special guests spin 45s of the best and most obscure soul and early rock ‘n’ roll. You can do the mashed potato or you can do the twist in this underground cave of a club, where you’ll be surrounded by taxidermy and some serious fans of old-school tunes, or you can catch him at Brooklyn Bowl one Saturday out of every month. Who doesn’t want Sam Cooke to soundtrack their night out?” - VILLAGE VOICE

Brooklyn Vegan

Ultimate Painting is here in NYC for CMJ and they’ve got a lot of shows. The band’s debut album is out next week and is a great listen: minimal guitar pop in the VU tradition that’s mellow but not boring.

Just in time for their new album I’m in Your Mind Fuzz, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will be touting their psychedelic, flute-driven garage rock to what have to be unassuming CMJ audiences.

Alt Citizen

Alt Citizen puts White Fence on the list of must-sees at CMJ

Singer songwriter Tim Presley, aka White Fence, is prolific, to say the least. His sound mixes the carefree attitude of ’60s psych-pop with the raw sensibilities of garage rock — meaning, get ready to dance, sway, and freak out.


Flavorpill puts Dune Rats atop the list of bands to see at CMJ

Brooklynite Juan Wauters first rose to prominence as the frontman of lo-fi favorites The Beets, and his solo material on label Captured Tracks expands his particularly enjoyable brand of lovable slacker stoner rock a la Mac Demarco with the freewheeling folky bent of Syd Barrett.


Flavorpill adds Meatbodies to list of bands to catch at CMJ

Fronted by Chad Ubovich of Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin’s backing bands, Meatbodies don’t necessarily fall far from the tree.


Flavorpill puts Purling Hiss on the list of bands you shouldn't miss at CMJ

Like Dinosaur Jr. before them, Purling Hiss are all about solos and long hair, a winning combination for most and especially so if you can shred like frontman Mike Polizze.


Flavorpill reminds us to catch OBM IIIs at CMJ

Rock n’ roll should be nothing if not fun. Few bands take this sentiment to heart as earnestly as the OBN IIIs of Austin, Texas, strutting across the stage with the bravado of Iggy Pop and a freight train of sound tearing out their speakers.
