Restless People led off the night with their second show of the day for the True Panther showcase at Piano’s. Restless People killed it, followed by equally amazing sets by Janka Nabay, Glasser, Delorean, and Lemonade, respectively. I’m not really a fan of live performance photographs but if anything, it’s a good exercise. Josh Haner, a staff photographer for the New York Times, was also there at the show, and he does it much better. Check out his CMJ portfolios on the New York Times website. His photo of Delorean is below. Lastly, I’d like to thank Dean for curating one of the best shows of the week.

Restless People

Post K-town BBQ and a great set at the Levi’s Fader Fort in the Ace Hotel, my homies Restless People head to Piano’s for the True Panther showcase with Lemonade, Delorean, and Glasser tonight starting at 9. Big up to BBQ spot for the fantastic luncheon. Really proud of these guys.

The CMJ Music Marathon descends upon New York once again. Last night, Glasser and Cold Cave played incredible sets at the Stereogum / Believer Party at the Webster Hall Studio. The evening started with Glasser, accompanied by Tanlines who will be performing throughout the week. If you missed it, check out the video of Glasser performing “Apply” which is posted below. I’d like to big-up Jesse for the great show and for listing me. Also, I’d like to quickly mention that Cold Cave is %$#*!@ amazing.
This year’s festivities had an epic start with the debut show by my good friends Restless People followed by a late night set by Washed Out at Santos. More photos and videos to come. Shouts to Tony Blankets for the auxiliary position which I shall try and make the most out of this week and Electric E for playing darts.
