CMJ Week! Here’s the Rundown…

I know I should’ve posted this on Monday, but I’m just reading it myself… checked out 3 CMJ shows last night alone! Luckily they were all in the same building, or I would’ve gone crazy. Many thanks to Dee Phunk ( Form) for compiling this list! I’ll throw in flyers for a few more events you should check out as well. Support talented artists who need to be heard!
