Pig Destroyer, Eyehategod Now Playing a Suddenly Much More Metal CMJ 2009


CMJ 2009 has just announced another wave of performers: The xx, Pig Destroyer, Eyehategod, Patrick Watson, Z-Trip, Midnight Juggernauts, Saul Williams, Janelle Monae, Superdrag, Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, Bear Hands, and UUVVWWZ will join Japandroids, the Very Best, Das Racist, Pissed Jeans, Pitbull, and a host of others in a slate that’s shaping up to be about as arbitrary and confusing as we expect from CMJ at this point. Points to organizers for pulling sludge veterans Eyehategod–their presence will make an excellent soundtrack to the bewildering trudge of pain and solitude that is our annual experience of this venerable music festival.
