The final day of the ultra-endurance event also known as CMJ has Heavier Than Air covering no less than nine bands and probably seeing several more. After reading Ste’s coverage, I’m putting more effort into exploring Young the Giant from Newport Beach, California and Miracles of Modern Science out of Brooklyn, New York. Read Heavier Than Air’s Day 5 coverage of CMJ here.
The fourth day of CMJ is made for the die-hards, those whose stamina (hopefully natural) and planning allow them to keep up with the pace of this intense musical mashup. After reading Heavier Than Air’s coverage, I’m definitely going to take a deeper dive into Dark Dark Dark and possibly Jackpot, Tiger.
