Three Occupy CMJ: French, Swedes and New Zealand Bring Their Local Flavor

post image

I am not certain if my information is 100% accurate as to the extent of this scourge but I definitely know that at least 3 countries have taken on an invasion of CMJ this year. As if on their own native soil they’ve setup access to food, their thinkers and musicians and more often than not luring innocent fair goers with free drinks, drinks as in alcoholic booze. I thought music is supposed to be contentious, in the eye of the beholder, for each one their taste, it doesn’t seem like we’re taking this as serious as say if a WTO meeting were to take place in our city. Take it from someone who knows their history this will not end well, first the French will setup two nights of French bands and next they’ll revive monsieur Buonaparte and then it’s good bye Louisiana or *gasp* Texas.

When Ceasar said: “Hey, let’s give the masses bread and entertainment”, as these insolent invaders are seeming to do, what he didn’t expect was the response from Brutus: “Hey, I find this knife in your back really entertaining right now, Ceasar”, and all history’s ever heard from Caesar afterward was “gurgle, gurgle, ooooooh”. So, dear fellows, let’s start misunderstanding more and rush to the venues of the occupants listed below (at the times also provided below).

No, I’m not reviving that old end of the world horse just to ride it up and down a screaming apocalypse speech.

S!CK April 22nd with OoOOo, Nike7up, Butterclock, Blissed Out, Mascara

post image

S!CK, the party that could, is becoming a cultural event that would, now that even the New Yorker has stodgily given some notice, while omitting details and getting some facts wrong, has crowned us with the finest prize: parents calling from all over the world saying, “ahem”, and “very good” and “wow, what fine language”. However, pay no heed to all that “jazz”, it’s still going to be just as weird and sick and whatever you will call an amazing experience. Listen to some of the performers in your private bubble and come join us this Friday at Santo’s.
