WOW CMJ was out of control this year. We had the pleasure of streaming 50+ bands that were part of the NYC festival, providing you with the most extensive live coverage anywhere around. But wait there’s more! This week is another show stopper with 20+ more bands streaming right to your computer, we’ve got our highlights below but as always keep an eye on our concerts page for more updates as they come in.
Tonight we’ve got Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy playing live from the Viper Room in LA. His Solo album Soul Punk just came out last week and we’re so excited to hear these new songs live. Make sure you RSVP for the show so you don’t miss it live.
Next we have another great show this time it’s singer songwriter Andrew Belle playing from his hometown of Nashville TN. We can’t wait to for a chance to see how his home crowd welcomes him back from a long US tour. RSVP here
Finally we have MC Lars live from The Knitting Factory Brooklyn. He calls himself the originator of “post-punk laptop rap”, and has pretty unbelievable list of acts he’s supported on tour including Nas, Lupe Fiasco, T-Pain and so many more.
