Some venues will be operating in NYC, Brooklyn, and Hoboken and holding some of the previously scheduled CMJ New Music Showcase shows. However, both Jetenderpaul and The Trouble With Sweeney will not be playing. More information will be given once their showcases are re-scheduled.

In light of yesterday’s tragedy, the CMJ New Music Showcase has been postponed in NYC until October 10-13. More details regarding appearances by Jetenderpaul and The Trouble with Sweeney will be made shortly. Our thoughts, hopes, and prayers are with those in NYC and DC.

The Denison Witmer performance this evening, Wednesday, 12 September 2001, will take place in Philadelphia at The Fire as originally planned.
