The Friday Five: CMJ Artists To Watch

CMJ Music Marathon is a week long festival that literally takes over any and every music venue in NYC.  It’s an entire week filled with seminars on the music industry, concerts, and new emerging artists playing pop up shows all around the 5 boroughs.   It’s worth checking out a showcase or two, and we suggest staying to catch all of the artists – you never know, you might just find your new favorite band!  One of us worked the festival last year and it was one of the most fun experiences we’ve ever had!  Here are our top five picks for bands to catch at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon.

1. Born Cages
Coming back for round two at CMJ, Born Cages are ready to hit the ground running with their latest single “Rolling Down The Hill”.  The band are playing a few shows for CMJ this year so be sure to catch them this year.

2. We Are Stations
Playing their first CMJ festival this year, We Are Stations aren’t afraid to give it their all.  Armed with a Foo Fighters sound and positive songs that can turn that frown upside down, this is a show you don’t want to miss at CMJ this year.  When we spoke with the band over the summer, they teased each other as well as a possible EP!

3. The Ugly Club
If you like Walk The Moon, there’s a chance you might like The Ugly Club.  Despite their name, the band is actually really easy on the eyes but that’s just an added bonus.   Spot one of their stickers around the five boroughs and tweet a picture of it- there could be a surprise in store for you!

4. The Rare Occasions
Continuing the grunge trend in 2014, The Rare Occasions are here and they’re going to take over your playlists one song at a time. The bands latest single is huge and we will definitely have this in heavy rotation in the fangirl offices!

5. Bailen
Bailen (previously The Bailen Brothers), is made up of twin brothers, their sister, and a family friend and honorary Bailen.   They first caught our attention when they opened for CMJ alumni AJR earlier this year.   If you like infectious melodies and harmonizing siblings, Bailen is definitely worth checking out.

Nick & Knight Live At The Best Buy Theater in NYC

Nick Carter and Jordan Knight brought their duet project, Nick & Knight, to the Best Buy Theater in New York City on Friday night and it was everything we could have imagined and more for two boy band members teaming up for an album and tour.

P1020515

During the concert, Jordan kept picking on Nick for being a trooper and powering through the concert even though Nick had almost lost his voice and was having a hard time singing.  That didn’t slow down his dance moves though, which he showcased in their terrific 90s medley mid-concert.  We might be biased but the best part of the concert might have been that cover of Ginuwine’s “Pony” that had the audience screaming with delight – like it was 1996 all over again! Watch their 90s medley below, which on its own is worth the price of admission.

P1020072

Nick and Jordan slowed things down a little when they broke out an acoustic guitar and keyboard to sing one of the most heartfelt songs on the album – “Halfway There.”  Making sure to give their larger than life fans the right stuff, Nick and Jordan also covered their boy band hits “I Want It That Way” and “Step By Step.”

P1020180

While we’re sad Jordan didn’t sing “Stingy” (Donnie was busy filming his TV show on Friday night), the sold out audience was treated to “Give It To You” and “Larger Than Life” featuring Nick Carter on the electric guitar.

Watch Nick & Knight sing “Paper” live below.

Catch Nick & Knight when they roll through your town.  You won’t forget it!    Check out the rest of the tour dates HERE.

Pick up a copy of their album on iTunes or Amazon now.

5SOS Release Official Video For “Good Girls”

After teasing us with clips and stills from their latest video, Australian punk rockers 5 Seconds Of Summer finally released the full video for their new single “Good Girls”.

The video shows Calum, Michael, Luke, and Ashton as a classically trained orchestral band in a flyer but they turn up to the “Reform School For Bad Girls” looking like Angus Young from AC/DC.

If anyone’s confused whether 5SOS are a boy band or not (hint: they’re NOT) this video should prove that these guys are poised to bring guitar driven rock music back to the masses!

Watch the official video for “Good Girls” below.

Pick up a copy of the “Good Girls EP” on iTunes or Amazon now.

Get your tickets to 5 Seconds Of Summer’s massive headlining “Rock Out With Your Socks Out” Summer 2015 tour HERE!

Catch the band at Jingle Ball concerts hosted by KDWB in Minneapolis, Z100 in NYC, and KIIS FM in LA this winter.

The Friday Five: 5 Songs Currently On Repeat

Whether we hit “replay” on our AppleTV to rewatch Sam Hunt’s live performance videos, or someone catches us humming 5SOS’s new single, we all have those songs that we can’t stop listening to.   This week’s Friday Five is a short playlist of the songs we just can’t seem to get enough of!

1. Jake Miller – First Flight Home
On the heels of his new single “First Flight Home”, Jake Miller announced that he would be playing at Miami’s Y100 Jingle Ball 2014 – something he says has been on his bucket list for a long time! Watch the official video for “First Flight Home” below.

2. Sam Hunt – Break Up In A Small Town
Sam Hunt is being billed as a “soon to be superstar”, and when we caught him opening for Kip Moore on the CMT “Up In Smoke Tour” we fully agreed.  Sam is set to play Emporium on Long Island in November and he’s one artist we will gladly go to “almost the Hamptons” for because he’s THAT good!

3. 5 Seconds Of Summer – Good Girls
Jingle Ball is the perfect exposure for the Australian pop punk band to potential fans that might not realize they actually do like guitar driven music!  5SOS are scheduled to perform at a bunch of annual jingle ball festivities around the United States in anticipation of their huge summer 2015 headlining tour!

4. North Of Nine – We Ride
Jackson Guthy’s new band North Of Nine hit the ground running with a single and a video for “We Ride”.  While the band aren’t touring just yet, they’re looking to the future and something big could be on the horizon for them.

5. Born Cages – Rolling Down The Hill
Local indie band, Born Cages are a fangirl favorite and not just because of their sleek sound, churning out catchy song after catchy song. Their latest single “Rolling Down The Hill” is getting added to a bunch of radio stations and it’s definitely a fun song during live shows!  Born Cages are slated to play two showcases at CMJ in New York this October.

We are all fangirls at heart.
