CBGB Festival To Hold Free Times Square Concert PLUS Music Line-Up Now Announced

Tags: CBGB Festival - My Morning Jacket - The Wallflowers - Grizzly Bear - James Murphy - Atlas Genius - Bell X1

The second CBGB Music & Film Festival is set to take over New York next week as hundreds of artists both old and new flood the streets in nearly 175 venues across the city.

The line-up has now been announced for year two of the CBGB Festival which will almost certainly exceed 2012's set-up. On October 8th - 13th, more than 700 artists will spread out in a celebration of some of the greatest music to have ever come out of New York - we are, of course, talking about the legendary 70s club of the same name that was founded by Hilly Kristal and saw the beginnings of icons such as Ramones, Misfits, the Patti Smith Group, Blondie, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Talking Heads.

Must-see artists this year include Kentucky rockers My Morning Jacket, Californian quartet The Wallflowers and New York's own Grizzly Bear. We will also get to see a special DJ set by LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and all female tribute act Lez Zeppelin will be making an appearance, though with only three songs so make sure you don't miss it! It's not all about Americans either as CBGB happily opens its arms to the likes of Aussie trio Atlas Genius who released their debut album earlier this year and eclectic Irish band Bell X1 who also released an album which reached number one in the Irish charts.

Bell X1, Bloodless Coup Album Review

Football and music share some common themes. They bring people together in an almost tribal fashion, they both stir emotions, they help to confirm or highlight many stereotypical traits and they bring a vast amount of pleasure to each of their fans. Where they differ enormously, certainly now-a-days, is how they get to be as big as they are. Although unlikely, it is now a possibility that one day Manchester City FC could be a bigger club, winning more trophies and topping more leagues than their fellow North-Western giants Manchester United FC. You'd probably still get good odds as the chances remain slim but it is nevertheless theoretically possible. Money can't buy you love, but a lot of it can buy you a football team, and even more of it may just bring you glory. If you were to compare this rather vulgar scenario with that of Bell X1 you still wouldn't place a bet, even if their record company were Universal/Sony/Syco or whatever. Bell X1 are Ireland's second biggest Rock band (The name of the other lot escapes me temporarily!) and alas, despite valiant efforts to alter that statistic that's all they will ever be. It's an unfortunate shame, but you can still celebrate coming second............"it's not the winning, it's the... " .Here's why.

Bell X1-Tongue - Single review
Bell X1 have done a good deed here. For the indie maniac there is a blend of greatness. Bizarre lyrics become intriguing and currently doing well to spread themselves around to the scene. People are talking not just about the biggest names now but the up and coming people that can add a taste of class to what has already been done. Not a major effect but with these you think yes ok they have something here. What's good about it is they are not afraid to by themselves by this song. Singing about a tongue is not your everyday occurrence and a risky

Music - Bell X1-Tongue - Single review

thing if that. So to sum it up there's not much to complain about here. And much like the Darkness are set about having a laugh and enjoying the music they are producing instead of taking themselves to seriously. Unfortunately alot of these less heard of bands only sponge a minimum amount of glory. I hope this can change here. You won't be blown away yet a cold bucket of water moment can't hurt anyone every now and then.
