Remember CMJ? That awesome thing you went to a few weeks ago where you saw all those cool shows, went to a bunch of panels and only got two hours of sleep every night? Well, in case things are a little hazy, we’ve rounded up some cool videos to help jog your memory. Yesterday we posted Wild Nothing’s dreamy performance at CMJ Union for KEXP, and now we’ve unearthed some footage from the wild Cinematic/XXL showcase at S.O.B.’s which featured Brooklyn revivalist Joey Bada$$, D.C. mainstay Fat Trel and more.
 
Mixing backstage interviews with some intense live footage, this video does an effective job of capturing the sweaty, chaotic atmosphere of the show, but without people elbowing and spilling drinks on you. Also, at the end Fat Trel takes his shirt off, which is always a good thing. Check it out, below.
