CMJ always gives us a good excuse to pack up and head to NYC for an extended weekend spent in dark, cavernous rooms with loud music and stank bands. This year we hope to squeeze ourselves into the one of New York’s most notoriously dank rooms and we couldn’t be more thrilled. On Saturday October 16th we will be hosting our 2004 showcase at CBGB and the line up couldn’t be tighter. Punk hotshots FROM ASHES RISE are coming out specially to headline the nights festivities, joining them will be Seattle bad boys THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES, PAINT IT BLACK, BREATHER RESIST and Canada’s freshest export DESPISTADO.

Also making their Jade Tree debut, opening the show, will be THE LOVED ONES. Featuring members of The Curse, Kid Dynamite and Trial by Fire, the three piece has been around since May and already have played with the best and brightest in the scene including The Bouncing Souls, Hot Water Music, Alkaline Trio, The Explosion and None More Black. The band is an explosive mix of punk sensibilities, rock riffs, and raspy vocals. Brian Mcternan (Thrice, Hot Water Music, Strike Anywhere) is slated to produce their CD EP for an early 2005 release.

Expect big things, as earnest, heart-felt sing-alongs simply don’t get any better than this.
