CMJ has rolled into town and luckily for some of our friends, the Jersey City Hotel has a late check out. On Tuesday Night, Jupiter One plays MercuryLounge, Higgins is at the Serious Business Showcase around the corner at Piano's, and The Golden Filter (Steve and Penny's from Lismore's new band) has just returned from Iceland and are playing the Stereogum Showcase at Webster Hall tonight and then play Santos Party House on Saturday Night. The Subway Surfers are battling the Badgers on Friday Night at Ottos, while Stuyvesant and The Neutron Drivers play the Trash Bar in Williamsburg. The overly full CMJ line-up is here.

Melissa is away so Ralph Santiago hosts. Your own stardom and free shots are at York Street Tavern's Tuesday Night Karaoke hosted by Freddy Fingers.

In addition, to this Tuesday at Lucky's, I am also picking up Cootah's alternating Thursdays at the Lamp Post.
