First off, a shout-out and thanks to the FeelingAnxious crew who put on one hell of a CMJ event last night. They kept us full with whiskey and pickel-backs, our ears ringing with fantastic music, and surrounded us with a solid crowd of people.
Our friends Little Anchor eased everyone in with some feel good pop with tight and effortless transitions between songs. Chris Cubeta and the Liars Club immediately displayed a comfortable yet seasoned presence on stage, bringing modesty in the form of incredible alt-folk rock to Brooklyn.
Other notable acts like Elizabeth the Catapult wowed me and really kept the show going up until Last Good Tooth (sort of like an american Noah and the Whale) who closed the event. Hey, I’m proud of Philly and our little music scene (Kurt Vile, War on Drugs, etc. etc. etc.) but man this crowd had some serious energy.
It may have been a bit of struggle this morning to get out of bed (when will they invent coffee IV’s?) but between covering CSS Friday night in Philly and CMJ-ing last night in New York, I’m obviously pretty spent. And in these moments I look to nice, relaxing music to keep me going..much like what Lewis & Clarke create.
We hope to be back soon Brooklyn, right-click and enjoy.
