Yeah, I know its some pretty silly hyperbole, but really. This show is amazing. We’ve done a bunch of CMJ shows over the years and they’ve all been special in their own way (Sharon Van Etten solo in 2008), some were even just downright great (White Fence and Widowspeak back to back in 2011), some just crazy fun (She Keeps Bees and Diamond Rings back to back 2010), but this year’s show is just truly superb from start to finish.

If you don’t believe me, at least believe our press. This is by far the best press an NYCTaper CMJ has ever received — this is head-spinning stuff:

Flavorpill calls Purling Hiss a “choicest pick”

The Guardian lists Amanda X as one of “19 Bands To See”
Deli Magazine is psyched to see The Kickback

Oh yeah, and beer. We’re happy that Sixpoint Brewery is again sponsoring our show. That basically means that our guests can consume large quantities of Sixpoint for free if you get there early, or for half-price ($3) if you slack off and get to Cake Shop late.
