looking back on cmj 2009…

today is the first day of cmj, and before i talk about who’s there this year, i want to rewind one year and get nostalgic about the bands that were brought to my attention after cmj 2009. (this is one of those times when i feel the need to reassert my devotion to this industry, in case everyone has forgotten about how certain bands who have exploded this calendar year were, indeed, around this time last year.) not to be rude…i just want some credit, people! welcome to my pity party.

okay, i feel better about myself now.

and bands of note playing this year’s fest:

i think the big question is: WILL THIS FINALLY BE FRENCH HORN REBELLION’S BREAK OUT YEAR? BECAUSE COME ON, THEY REALLY DESERVE IT!

and as always, i will be scouring the blogs after the weekend to hear what everyone what bands are projected to be the next big thing so i can write another self-indulgent post just like this one in a year’s time!
