cmj finale

so, for the last day of cmj, i intended on seeing starfucker at noon, but failed to do so because there was no way in hell that i was gonna wake up that early.
instead i woke up late and moped around the house until like 7, then headed over to music hall for the iheartcomix showcase.
it was basically deja vu of last year's cmj finale. i ended my week at music hall with matt and kim.
but sadly, matt and kim weren't actually playing this year, matt was just hosting the event. without kim ... and btw, he was 2 hours late.

anywayssss...the night started out with shout out out out out ... five keyboards, four synths, two drum sets, two basses, and high kicks for days. they were exciting for a little bit, then i started to get bored. i have a short attention span, don't make your songs 85 minutes long!!

next up was juiceboxxx. everyone favorite white boy rapper from milwaukee. some girl was basically trying to rape him, and he was getting really fucking mad at her. before he even played, she tried to kiss him. he was completely and utterly disgusted. and while he played, she kept pulling on his microphone cord and it kept unplugging. eventually by the end of his set, he got so pissed that he threw the mic on the floor and said to just fuck it, but thankfully he had two mics, and he finished his song.
he was still great, even though he was so upset. it was almost as heartbreaking as when we saw yannis philipakkis from foals drop all of his change on the floor at maxwell's.

around 11, matt johnson of matt and kim finally showed up to introduce totally michael.
he said that he might have tape worm or something horrible like that and that pieces of his feet were falling off.
oh matt ... you never make sense.

totally michael was fabulous as usual.
he was totally on point, even though the crowd was wack as hell and made the drillteam look bad during "cheerleaders vs. the drillteam." come on guyzzzzzz ... the drillteam obvz has the better disses. i was one of three people chanting. whatevz.
he's amazing. and still tight. like spandex. bahahahaaa.

next were team robes. super fun. super sweaty. super nasty. i wouldn't expect anything less from them.
ty's shirt looked like termites ate it. ew.
no pictures. i never take any pictures of them. hahahaa.

kind of last were hearts revolution.
like a mix between crystal castles and css, only not as good.
they were fun though. i don't know if i really care for the girl's voice, but the instrumentals are to dieeeee for.
pink strobe lights and bedazzled microphones aren't a bad thing either.

we stayed for like 5 minutes of ninjasonik, but left because people were getting a little too drunk for our taste.
oh, and we were tired anyway.

matt and kim on halloween! get PUMPEDDDD!
