NYU MEISA CMJ Battle of the Bands! Coat Sale!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


I remember Battle of the Bands happening a lot in TV shows–there were at least seven on Saved by the Bell throughout the series. They make for a good plot point for shows that unrealistically depict high school, but they’re more fun to go to in real life. If you’re getting antsy waiting for CMJ to start, go to NYU-MEISA’s Battle of the Bands tonight. Unlike on fictional battle of the bands, the NYU-MEISA battle will cover a wide range of genres, from metal to electro-pop to neo-soul. The winning band gets a pretty badass prize: a spot on the NYU CMJ showcase at the end of marathon. And if the bands tie, maybe they’ll pick a winner by having a cage match.

NYU-MEISA Battle of the Bands, with MEM, The Brothers Frank, Kevin Haden, Amadeus, Analogue Transit, Ben and Adam and Natti Vogel
Kimmel Center Eisner and Lubin Auditorium
60 Washington Square South [Manhattan]
Friday, October 9 doors at 7pm, show at 8pm
$8 at the door, $6 in advance from Ticket Central

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
