Lily and the Parlour Tricks, The Mercies, Socratic, The Ugly Club and others light up Sullivan Hall at CMJ
As you might expect, this year’s CMJ Festival in New York was packed full of bands, some talented, others. . . less so.
With multiple shows, events, and showcases happening constantly over a period of just a few days, CMJ can be hit or miss of experience. However one gig at this year’s festival we definitely didn’t want to miss, was the Big Picture Media Showcase. Big Picture is a progressive PR and digital marketing agency in New York, that’s typically got its ear to the ground when it comes to cool, emerging new bands.
As expected, this year’s showcase, which took place at Sullivan Hall, did not disappoint. We were introduced as to a whole crop of great bands, some we’d hear of, some we hadn’t; including The Mercies, Socratic, The Jacob Jeffries Band, The Ugly Club, and Lily and the Parlour Tricks.
