Oxford Collapse closed the outstanding Pop Tarts CMJ Afternoon Party yesterday at Cake Shop with a raging set featuring material from their 2008 release on Sub Pop called BITS. As the trio performed their full bodied guitar-bass-drums power pop with equal parts manic energy and irreverence, the enthusiastic crowd voiced their obvious pleasure. Oxford Collapse performs three more CMJ shows, all evening events:
Oct 22 New York, NY @ Crash Mansion
Oct 23 New York, NY @ Red Bull Space (40 Thompson St.)
Oct 24 New York, NY @ Piano’s w/Death Vessel, Ruby Suns (Sub Pop CMJ Show)

We recorded from our standard upfront position at Cake Shop and the sound quality is outstanding. Thanks to Pat and to the band for their courtesies and permission. Enjoy!
