    Default Music Tapes CMJ Merge Showcase

    Merge Records Showcase on Saturday, October 25th @ Mercury Lounge
    217 E. Houston St. on the corner of Ave. A & Houston
    CMJ Badges welcome and Tickets to our showcase are $15 and available at the door only.

    The Music Tapes : 8 pm
    Wye Oak : 9 pm
    Portastatic : 10 pm
    The Broken West : 11 pm
    The Rosebuds : 12 am
    Oakley Hall : 1 am

    I really want to go to this, but, of course, I don't have a CMJ pass.

    I'm going to try and get tickets at the door. I really hope it works out.

    Is anyone else going who doesn't have a pass?

    Hey, I went. It was great! Scott Spillane, Laura Carter, Nesey Gallons, etc. I'm terrible at remembering setlists, but stand-outs were "Death to Parents," "An Orchestration's Overture," and "Aliens." He also played (at least) two new songs. The only bummer about the show was that I wish there would have been more Music Tapes fans in attendance. Instead, I felt that there were too many "industry insiders," which CMJ shows tend to attract.

    I have pictures and videos that I'll post soon enough.
