The 1st day of CMJ and I was super excited to go see bands! I had wanted to head over to the showcase at Red Bull Space but I wasn’t able to make it there until after 7pm.
To my disappointment there was a huge line which didn’t surprise me considering the event was free. After waiting 40 minutes we decided to go over to the Pure Volume House and hang with our friends from GOOM radio.
While at the Pure Volume House we had two celebrity sightings: first Jeffree Star walked through the room and past everyone with a cold stare to the bar and then walked back to the lounge area hosted by PASTE magazine. We later saw the Aaron Gillespie, lead vocalist from The Almost.
We left Pure Volume House around 10:15 to catch the 10:30 show of The Lights Out at the Alphabet Lounge. They played a rocking set.
Although I did not get to see as much money as I wanted to on the first day, I had fun traisping through the city.
Stayed tuned for more, CMJ runs for 5 days!
