CMJ Guide for October 18, 2007: Spoon, Islands, and Le Castle Vania

culture spoon CMJ Guide for October 18, 2007: Spoon, Islands, and Le Castle Vania

We’re tired just looking at tomorrow’s CMJ schedule, but here are the most festive of the festivities.

At 7 p.m., Montreal sonic masters Islands (of Unicorns fame) will join Brooklyn’s own Enon and former Pitchfork darlings, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead at the Highline Ballroom. Yo Majesty, a (excuse us) fierce trio of Tampa ladies who make club rap sound fresh, will also be performing. Check out Yo Majesty’s “Kryptonite Pussy” on their MySpace page for some ear candy.

The much-buzzed about blippy noise band Holy Fuck will make their CMJ appearance at Glasslands with The Warlocks and Black Acid starting at 9 p.m.

At 10 p.m., Deerhunter is having another huge blow-out show with Le Castle Vania, The Toxic Avenger, Blake Miller, Dynamite Walls, Klever, Frankie Chan, and Roxy Cottontail at Rebel. Roxy made a mixtape called Endless Summer for her friends at Hellz Bellz. Listen to it with the windows rolled down and pretend it’s still August before heading to the party.

At midnight, Spoon, your favorite Austin indie rock transplants, will turn it out at the Gramercy Theatre with Glasgow rockers 1990s and piano-infused UK quartet Air Traffic.
