I spent the last week in New York City at the CMJ Music Marathon Festival, venue hopping around Manhattan and Brooklyn as a deliriously happy musical tourist.  So much fun.

CMJ is a four day industry-focused music festival which took place in various venues around NYC from Tuesday the 20th of October right through til Saturday the 24th of October.

As well as watching bands at the millions of blog parties that were taking place over the four day festival, I caught the Irish showcase, put on by Music From Ireland. The bands representing were The Minutes, The Star Department, We Should Be Dead, Dark Room Notes, Valerie Francis, Super Extra Bonus Party, and Subplots.  The showcase was held in The Bowery Poetry Club on the Thursday of CMJ and  I managed to squeeze in interviews with Super Extra Bonus Party and Subplots.

This show was a CMJ special, and featured some of the tops bands I caught while at the festival, as well as some that I didn’t manage to catch but other NY based blogs did and consequently bigged them up on their blogs.

I pre-recorded the show in The Chelsea Hotel where I was staying, hence the photo above.  What a great place.
