The Daily Shortlist October 20
Its time again for CMJ to take over NYC with five days of music from every up and coming band you can think of playing at every venue in NYC that you can think of. To start this one off, check out the Brooklyn Vegan showcase featuring one of my favorite bands, Midnight Juggernauts plus Fanfarlo, The Antlers, Laura Marling, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Wheel, and Walter Schreifels Band. Just as much fun as any show and just as big a venue, SEA is one BIG Thai restaurant. Big enough to have a pool surrounded by tables as a giant Buddha stands above it. Luckily, the food is really great. Offering traditional Pad Thai ($7) to more involved dishes like the Mummy Fish ($14). On N6th, a street full of bars and restaurants, Zablozki’s is the local bar of the bunch, with a pool table and a friendly atmosphere and 12 beers on tap. What looks like some dark basement with tables and some couches, Hugs will end up being a dance party with an awkward blend of music genres that you will grow to love quickly.
