It’s been quite a year for the three members of We Have Band, having only played their debut gig a year ago, the wonderful trio are now regarded as one of the most exciting bands coming out of the UK. Their rise started last summer when word of mouth took over and a string of much loved and talked about small gigs in London were noticed by a lucky few including NME, Dazed & Confused and XFM who all signed up early for more.
Oh CMJ, CMJ, CMJ. I bow my head at you. New York is always full of endless options for a good night out, but come CMJ, the possibilities are truly infinite. The actual marathon, unofficial parties, showcases, and panels are enough to make anyone’s head spin, and boy is my head still spinning!
Both the syndicate and myself started CMJ off a night early, cause you know, five days of nonstop gigging isn’t enough! Held at midtown’s Rebel, the syndicate’s pre-CMJ showcase was the place to be. All three floors of Rebel were packed shortly after doors opened as there were free drinks up until ten, and four, very blogger-friendly bands to see: The Union Line, The Cringe, White Denim, and the band I came to see, Fanfarlo.
