The FIRST EVER BAND MOM CMJ SHOW is here!!

The Band Mom, your favorite boutique college radio promotion company, is thrilled to announce its first-ever CMJ showcase! It’s a free show in Brooklyn this afternoon (Saturday, 10/22/11) with a great lineup and a dangerous drink special. Come on by!!

(designed by Tyrel Stendahl, a designer for the Cheezburger Network [LOLcats, Failblog!] by day and Terrordactyl by the rest of the time!!)

Here’s the facebook invite. Here’s some more stuff about it!!

FREE (no badges, RSVP, or cover charge required!!)

DRINK SPECIAL: $3 Maker’s Mark all day!!!

21+ (sorry babies!)

Union Hall is located at 702 Union Street near the corner of 5th ave, in Park Slope Brooklyn. Take the R train to the Union stop, or it’s a short cab ride or one train transfer from Williamsburg (to the R from the G or the L – I’ll be happy to give more detailed directions to out-of-towners upon request – jenn [at] thebandmom.com)

there are 2 great comedy shows in a row following this showcase at Union Hall, so stick around!

 

info on artists!

12:45 SOFT PUNCH:

Soft Punch is the brand new solo project by Ryan Little of Tereu Tereu, from Washington DC. Ryan is also a great music journalist in DC and an all-around solid dude. His description of the music is “Intimate, queer vibrations.” I think this might be his first show as Soft Punch? Come be a part of history!

1:30 MIGHTY MOON:

Jay Giampietro (Daylight’s for the birds) and Leah Evans make sweet, sun-soaked acoustic pop with faint hints of foreboding as Mighty Moon. Their debut EP “Breezes” was recorded at Black Dirt Studios and has been called “like Chairlift on a hilltop or George Harrison on a date” by Gill Mills of New Music Matters.

2:15 BRIGHT BROWN:

Bright Brown, led by Alex Nahas, plays Pink Floyd-influenced psychedelia with an organic/folk sensibility. As they put it, “Bittersweet layers and textures abound, and beautifully crafted songs exist at the core.” They’ve currently got a Pledge Music campaign going to release their latest album on vinyl (check it from that fb link!)

3:00 PRAIRIE EMPIRE:

Brittain Ashford makes beautiful celebratory folk music with her band, Prairie Empire. I met her in Brooklyn through recent client/current friend Shenandoah Davis, then promptly ran into her in Portland two weeks later and found out that she knows a bunch of my other friends as well, like the next artist on the roster! The world is a tiny place and it is filled with beautiful people.

3:45 MELAENA CADIZ:

Melaena Cadiz is one of the sweetest, most good-hearted and genuinely and effortlessly creative spirits I know. Her music has a country twang and a broken heart. When I did a radio campaign with her in June 2010 her album reached #1 on Earshot’s Folk/Roots/Blues chart, and it deserved it.

4:30 GIRLS IN TROUBLE:

Girls In Trouble is a labor of love spearheaded by Alicia Jo Rabins, violinist, lyricist, and Torah scholar extraordinaire, and also includes Aaron Hartman of Old Time Relijun. This band owns a big chunk of my heart. The music is a totally arresting indie-folk/art-pop song cycle about the complicated lives of women in Torah. Or more simply, a series of songs about what it feels like to be alive.

 

SEE YOU THERE!!!
