So this was me dipping my toes into the deep sea of indie / alt rock at CMJ. This show was a showcase organized by Relix magazine and DoNYC. The "headliner" was a new group called Alexander F, which includes the lead singer from Rubblebucket. They were intense. So intense that they played for only 25 minutes.
Catey Shaw was definitely my favorite from this roundup. Apparently discovered playing her ukulele on the New York subway, she actually has a fantastic voice. Her band, though, was just OK. All in all, a fun little show. 3/5 stars
