Insound 10th Anniversary Party at Brooklyn Bowl TONIGHT!

Tonight at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg, Insound, who is  known for being the BEST indie retailer online, is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary! The doors open early at 6, and there is free beer until 8pm.  Amongst the bands playing are The Drums, Real Estate, These are Powers and Cymbals Eat Guitars. There is also a special ‘TBA’ band on the bill that still hasn’t leaked. Who can it be? I’m not sure but if the announced lineup is that good, the TBA band is going to blow your mind. Tickets are 10 dollars at the door to get in. Arrive early and stay late. Who doesn’t like to party?

CMJ Marathon Leaks the News on (Some) Bands

CMJ 2009 is just around the corner. It’s so close we can smell it in the air. Even though the artists aren’t supposed to be revealed until late next week the earliest, CMJ managed to spill the beans on a few. And by few we mean 70 out of about 1,200 bands. No huge names have been released yet but CMJ always holds out on us. The festival will take place from October 20th to the 24th this year in New York City as always. Is there any other place to hold such an event? Going strong for 28 years it’s always one of the most anticipated music festivals of the year. Some of the bands that have been confirmed so far are The Antlers, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Action Painters, These United States, Otter Petter, and Woodpigeon.

Discounted passes are available at CMJ.com until Tuesday August 18th. Act fast to avoid paying the regular price.
