It would appear that everyone in the music business has decided to defer to Axl Rose and not make any news today, so I’ve spent the last hour or so trying to figure out who I’m going to see during my own personal CMJ Day One. (See, last night I saw this awesome act called The Insides Of My Eyelids–they performed for 11 1/2 hours straight, and had all these whacked-out conceptual pieces about the protagonist, who looked a lot like me, wearing wide-brimmed ceramic hats while trying not to embarrass herself in front of people she wanted to impress. Fun times!) I’m working off the official schedule, although I’ll probably peruse some no-badge-required listings on the subway downtown. Here are five acts I’m interested in tonight–feel free to add your own recommendations!
A UK act whose live show looks pretty good.
Old faves. Plus they’re playing late, so it’ll be good for coming down.
German disco that I mysteriously acquired sometime before I got kicked off OiNK. The album’s serviceable enough to make them a decent 7 p.m. option.
Also, there’s one band I’m interested in because of the utter awfulness of their name: Tiger! Shit! Tiger! Tiger! With a name like that, they’d better be parodying something, right?
Also also, I will be checking the comments on this post via mobile device, so don’t worry about your recommendations getting lost in the shuffle.
