Yesterday we posted about our first CMJ show of 2012, the day party on Thursday October 18, 2012 at Cake Shop. We revealed two artists for this amazing bill, with clues about the other five acts. Today, we’re filling in another name — the inimitable Hans Chew. A little bio about Hans:
“Hans Chew’s 2010 debut album, Tennessee and Other Stories…, received four-stars from Rolling Stone Magazine who called it “fantastic… timeless…”. Uncut Magazine included the record in their Top 50 Albums of the Year and their list of the 20 Best Americana Albums, while also nominating Hans for their highest honor, The Uncut Music Award. Hans Chew is alive and kicking in New York City. He is currently working on his next record, due in 2012.”

Yesterday, Hans revealed his appearance at our show with this tumblr post:

We’re all set to play the @nyctaper @cmj 2012 day party at @cakeshopnyc !!!
This show is sure to be a highlight of CMJ 2012 in October…our band is like a bunch of rabid thoroughbreds kicking in their stalls raring to rock and roll a New York City crowd after a long local hiatus…not to be missed… Also on the bill are New Orleans’ own Hurray For the Riff Raff, who recently appeared on HBO’s Treme, and have been touring Europe extensively, and recently played a spectacular show in Brighton, UK promoted by our European management company Brighthelmstone Promotions. Plus Merge Records’ act Mount Moriah, and more TBA…
