01. Com Truise @ The Gramercy Theater
That name hasn’t stopped new Jersey-based musician Seth Haley from reaching a huge audience with his electronic sound. Expect to hear plenty of tracks from the recent In Decay at this show.
02. The Stepkids @ Webster Hall
Expect punk, jazz, soul and a whole lot more from this three-piece band of singer-songwriters, who open up for Kimbra at Webster Hall tonight.
03. Electric Guest @ Irving Plaza
Mondo by the multifaceted Los Angeles group Electric Guest has gained plenty of momentum this year, landing them a prime spot at CMJ for this show at Irving Plaza.
04. Emma Louise @ The Delancey
The electro-infused folk pop of Australian singer Emma Louise is sure to make a splash at the multiple shows she is playing at CMJ, with this one set to close out the festival.
05. Maria Minerva @ 92Y Tribeca
Maria Minerva just dodged a robbery when we spoke to her ahead of this CMJ appearance. Let’s hope her set of quietly infectious art pop doesn’t incur such difficulties tonight at 92Y Tribeca.
06. Theophilus London @ The Gramercy Theater
Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London is famed for his Morrissey worship, although his music is so eclectic that he could spin off on multiple tangents at any moment. Expect the unexpected from him at this Windish Agency showcase.
07. Doldrums @ Glasslands Gallery
Doldrums’ electronic sounds are self-described as “music for staying up all night, just thinking,” which tired minds at CMJ will adapt to at this Ratking/PopGun showcase.
08. RüFüS @ The Delancey
Those umlauts help differentiate RüFüS from other bands of the same name, but their mix of folk, deep house and math rock should leave no one in any doubt about what they sound like here.
09. High Highs @ Cameo Gallery
Jack Milas & Oli Chang fuse electronic and acoustic instruments as High Highs, making them beguiling openers at this second Windish showcase of the night at the Cameo Gallery.
