Next month bands from all over the world will invade the city for four nights of nonstop music. We know the big names are some must see shows, but don’t let the smaller font fool you. There are some hidden gems you should not overlook. Here are a few of the smaller name you shouldn’t miss at CMW this year.
Making everyone fall in love with the addicting track, Johnny, which dips into the mind of a heartbroken girl in love (which we’ve all been), Basement Revolver has been quickly causing a stir around them. Their debut EP was a strong glimpse at what is to come from the band. Invoking deep emotion when you listen, they’re even more powerful live.
The Australian duo will once again grace CMW stages, but they’ve got a new look and sound. They’ll blow your mind with their oddly sensual set. Try not to fall in love with them as they turn each room into their own private jam session.
For three nights Japanese Breakfast will be climbing on amps and jumping around the Silver Dollar stage. Belting out an enticing rock, the band is a one of a kind gem.
A simple packaged band with an extraordinary sound. Making the long trek from Ireland, Bitch Falcon are a band you need to keep on your radar.
Dropping Dirty from their name didn’t alter anything that we loved about Frigs. They’re still the same grimy alt-rock you love to get wrapped up in. Droning guitar taken from the ’70s and a raspy voiced angel make these guys a must see show.
