CMJ 2009: Boys Who Make Dancey Music

Catching up from last weekend — so many activities!

OCTOBER 22nd

Started the evening at the SPIN offices for a special rooftop performance by Portland, Oregon’s Hockey. Like The Rapture and The Virgins before them, these boys know how to get girls dancing. Love love love them. Find songs like “Work,” totally irresistible.

The Answering Machine, a Manchester-based quartet freshly flown in from London, England, totally rocked the After the Jump showcase at Pianos. They kinda sound like a young version of The Cribs.

Finished off the night with an eardrum popping performance by Priestess at Arlene’s Grocery. Yowzah!
