Sub Pop Goes to CMJ : Octrocktober 2012

That’s right folks! Sub Pop is coming to The Big Apple to partake in the College Music Journal musical festivities. We will celebrate this year with a showcase in the vibrant borough of Brooklyn at The Knitting Factory on October 18th. The eclectic lineup for our Octrocktober Celebration is as follows:

Debo Band 8 PM
Daughn Gibson 8:50 PM
Poor Moon 9:40 PM
METZ 10:30 PM
King Tuff 11:20 PM
Pissed Jeans 12:10 AM

*Doors are at 7 PM and this show is 18+ for the first time in years! Young music directors, that means you can finally experience an official Sub Pop showcase. Hooray! Go here to buy tickets.

What people are saying about the bands:

Debo Band:
“The Boston-based band Debo Band gives the psychedelic music heard on the Ethiopiques collections a high-spirited revamp,” -Village Voice (Live review, 2012)

Daughn Gibson:
“All Hell is a subtly clever record that pits one type of music that strongly evokes one era— here, country music— against another, namely this decade’s sample-heavy culture. Gibson does a lot of questioning within that framework, both seriously and tongue-in-cheek. All of that makes for a rewarding record to think about, and to intellectualize, but All Hell wouldn’t be nearly so fun to listen to if it weren’t for Gibson’s ear for melody. His thick baritone breezes confidently over the songs, lassoing hook after hook, redeeming his burnt-out characters through song.” – Pitchfork (Album review of All Hell, 2012)

Poor Moon:
“These songs are gutsier in their arrangements, more surefooted in the songwriting, and more certain of the band’s identity.” – Pitchfork (Album review Poor Moon LP, 2012)

METZ:
“On their debut, Metz roll up the lurch of post-rock, the jagged flicker of post-punk, and the fist-pump chant-alongs of hardcore, into a concentrated clump of chaos.” – Spin (5 Best New Artists for August, 2012)

King Tuff:
King Tuff finds Thomas leaving the garage for soaring, unbridled pop accessibility— the first track, after all, is called “Anthem”. His drawling hooks are variously dedicated to provoking physical movement or singing bratty lines about breaking the rules, bumming around, not giving a shit, and other charming, unapologetic matters of youth. (Overlooked Records, 2012) – Pitchfork

Pissed Jeans:
“There’s a blunt but effective wit at work here, pressed into the service of misanthropy.” – New York Times

Sub Pop:
“Were not the best, but were pretty good.” – Sub Pop Records

“‘Only in Dreams,’ the second Dum Dum Girls album, seethes with a beautiful, raging confidence, louder and fuller than anything they’ve done before, and better than the onetime peers they’re leaving behind. These lush and reverb-thick songs are ambitious and pointed about subjects that often drag: leaving, wasting away, aching.” – New York Times (Only in Dreams album review, 2011)
