Once again, Panache Booking steals CMJ with a wonderful, comically overstuffed lineup of emerging art-fucks and avant-weirdos. Leading the fray is headliners Heavy Trash, the fuckabilly bear-cat of a band starring original wild man Jon Spencer and Speedball Baby’s Matt Verta-Ray. But the real treat is seeing as many of the openers as possible. We recommend one-woman loop-pedal choir Juliana Barwick, Lynchian motorcycle bar nightmare Golden Triangle, electro flutterpunx Dinowalrus and dance-clanger cheer team Screens. But there’s enough to choose your own adventure. With the Stalkers, Unnatural Helpers, Lovvers, and more.
