Guess what! All my artists are on tour this fall!! Plus I’m having an AMAZING CMJ SHOWCASE. Something awesome is happening this fall wherever you are. If you’re a station rep and near any of these shows, drop me a line for the hookup (tix giveaways? interviews? instudio performances? I can help)!!

Let’s start with the showcase!

The Band Mom official CMJ showcase! (fb RSVP link!) (doNYC RSVP link!)


Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Doors at 7:30, Music from 8pm-2am

Passenger Bar

229 Roebling St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn

(direct walk in between Knitting Factory and Baby’s All Right; also super close to Union Pool & other Bedford/N6th-area venues!)

$5 suggested donation (free to CMJ badge holders)

21+ (sorry kids)


7:30 doors

8:00-8:25 Anna Gordon (Olympia WA, also the MD of KAOS!)

8:35-9:05 Anthonie Tonnon (Misra Records, New Zealand)

9:20-9:50 Prairie Empire (Brooklyn NY)

10:05-10:35 Courtesy Tier (Brooklyn NY)

10:50-11:20 Fred Thomas (Polyvinyl, Saturday Looks Good to Me)

11:35-12:15 Sara Curtin (Washington DC)

12:30-1:00 Matt Bauer (Brooklyn NY)

1:15-1:45 MULTIMAGIC (Cincinnati OH)





Anna Gordon writes ghostly stories and fingerpicks an acoustic guitar, speaking intimate truths through a soft, soulful, and lilting voice. Her home of Olympia, WA has called her “the overlord of creepy songs” and describes her folk tunes as “a less than lethal dose of nightshade.”



Anthonie Tonnon’s reputation as a lyricist and performer has seen him invited to open for Paul Kelly, Okkervil River and Yumi Zouma. His show is part folk, part Krautrock and part performance art, and developed over hundreds of performances in the USA, Australia, and New Zealand.



More sad hits.



Courtesy Tier is a three piece rock group from brooklyn, ny channeling the heavy blues of the past and melding together an edgy sound of the future.



Strange, poetic, lyric-centric songs from former member of Saturday Looks Good To Me, Chain & The Gang. New album “All Are Saved” ranked 8.0 on Pitchfork, among other high praise from international press.



D.C. musician / ex-Brooklyn fishmonger / PopMatters and CMJ.com premiered artist (romantic groove, gossamer melody). Curtin began in the folk scene, but NPRs WAMU Bandwidth compares her solo project more with Sade or Sharon Van Etten than D.C.s long folk tradition. American Songwriter recently featured her as a Daily Discovery.



“Matt Bauer conjures a warm yet slightly eerie mood with his banjo driven alt folk. The Greenpoint-via-Kentucky folkster has a gorgeous whispery way with a song.” – Time Out New York

“Moody folk that’s as much Appalachian as it is apparition. .” – IFC



MULTIMAGIC is an indie pop band from Cincinnati, Ohio. Formed in 2014 by singer/guitarist, Coran Stetter and keyboardist, Brian Davis. The pair was joined in November by guitarist/singer Benjamin Hines, singer/bassist Mia Carruthers and drummer Sebastien Schultz. The band is currently in the studio working on their debut record.

The Band Mom is your favorite boutique college radio promotion company. Based in Seattle since 2014 (Brooklyn 2009-2013), The Band Mom works with a very selective roster to ensure maximum attention to and success with each artist. Although Jenn Misko (as The Band Mom Presents) has put on a number of successful events in NYC and Austin, this is The Band Mom’s first official CMJ showcase! Pop by for a few minutes since it’s an easy walk from all the other Williamsburg venues you know (or end your night here since the show goes late), or make a night of it, because this entire lineup is TOTALLY AMAZING.
