VT Bands @ CMJ

Casey at Seven Days has a brief piece this week about the VT bands that are heading down to NYC for this week's CMJ festival. Four area bands are playing the festival on Thursday and Friday nights. It's a fairly diverse representation of VT music. Alt-country to indie rock to hippie chick to retro new wave. The most successful local act is Grace Potter who seems to be everywhere these days and will probably sound the most different from the rest of the CMJ line-up. However, I think Andrew Smith Disaster is my favorite.

Buffalo Springsteen - Rodeo Bar - Thursday @ 9pm (alt-country)
Andrew Smith Disaster - Rockwood Music Hall - Thursday @ midnight (indie rock)
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals - Lion's Den - Friday @ 9:30pm (hippie chick music)
The Static Age - Delancey - Friday @ 10pm (retro new wave)

If anyone catches any of these shows, I'd be curious to hear about it.
