METAL LIVES IN NYC THIS WEEK; VINCE’S CMJ SHOW PICKS
It’s the first day of CMJ and I already want to punch every swept-hair indie rock snob that I see on the street in the face. Picking up my badge this morning was a nightmare; aside from having to deal with said indie snob fuckwads from Idaho or wherever the hell they come from, registration opened a half hour late and was completely disorganized.
ANYWAY, since everyone is asking me what shows I’m going to this week, here it is, laid out plain and simple, after the jump. These are the shows I’ll be at, so come along if you so choose and we will drink heartily together! Most of ‘em are metal, but not all. See you there.
