Greenpointers CMJ Showcase at Matchless Friday (10/18)

© Raymond Forbes & Lorraine Rodriguez

CMJ starts today! Last week, I shared a brief, North Brooklyn-centric preview of some bands and shows I’m looking forward to checking out. One must-see is the showcase that Greenpointers is proudly co-sponsoring along with Supercrush Studios and CaraBella Presents. It takes place Friday, October 18 at Matchless (557 Manhattan Avenue), it starts at 8:00 PM, and it costs $5 – unless you have a CMJ pass. Then it’s free.

The showcase features six great bands, three from Brooklyn and three from out of town. They are Shark Week, Invisible Days, Shy Hunters, Andre Obin, Rarechild, and Ra Ra Rasputin. There will be three DJ sets to follow, with Dead_Beat_Dad, Spiritual Abuse, and Post-Paint Boy ready to spin late into the night. It’s going to be a lot of fun. You can RSVP here at the Facebook event page.

Lest you think we are biased and tooting our own horn, here’s a chance to get to know each band better. I was able to talk with several of them, so check out a few interesting facts plus links to their latest music.
