Even though FABBro seems as though he may be on the verge of a breakdown with all the CMJ-related logistic madness that comes with his profession, FAB is more than a little jealous to be missing one of the most musically funnest weeks in New York ever. While we're normally more than a little, uh, bitchy and unenthused about most things, FAB loves CMJ because it is a balls out phenomenal opportunity to discover all kinds of new music you never knew you couldn't live without. And it looks like the Dim Mak afterparties ain't half bad either. So if you're in New York, hit up the shows and pour one out for FAB. A few suggestions: Nouvelle Vague, mewithoutyou, De Novo Dahl, Asobi Seksu, A Fir-Ju Well, Kaki King, Oxford Collapse, Mixel Pixel, the Octopus Project, the Fatales (FAB on the Fatales), the New Pornographers, Nightmare of You, Arcade Fire, Bravo Silva, the Fame, Of Montreal, Monsters are Waiting, the Jim Yoshi Pile Up, Blackalicious, Surefire, Five O'Clock Heroes, World Leader Pretend, Aesop Rock, the Sun (FAB on the Sun), the Hold Steady, the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ambulance LTD, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, the Spinto Band (FAB on the Spinto Band), CocoRosie, Psychic Hearts, Hello Nurse (FAB on Hello Nurse), Coheed and Cambria, the Julius Airwave, Le Tigre, and oh my God so much more but I gotta run to class.
