Forts and Concerts

A couple good ones coming up that require advance RSVPs:

1) Purevolume Smartlounge CMJ Showcase, 1p. This is going on both 10.19 and 10.20 at the Thompson Hotel (190 Allen St.), with two stages both days. Live acts include, but are not limited to, DOM and Small Black on Wednesday, and Dum Dum Girls, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and The Stepkids on Thursday. Keep in mind that even the DJ stage will host big names like Talib Kweli, Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem), Ayad Al Adhamy (Passion Pit), and Andy Rourke (The Smiths). Oh, and did I mention that there will be a 2-hour open bar both days with Absolut, Jameson, and Chivas, plus tons of giveaways? RSVP here (you don't actually need to have a smartphone).

DOM- Living in America
Small Black- Photojournalist
Dum Dum Girls- Bedroom Eyes (love this song)
Unknown Mortal Orchestra- How Can U Luv Me?
The Stepkids- Shadows on Behalf

2) The Fader Fort 2-9p, both 10.20 and 10.21 at Drive-In Studios (443 W. 18th St). This sounds great: more bands will probably be added, but already the lineup includes Purity Ring and Metronomy. There will also be free Bushmills, Budweiser, Pepsi, and espressos (presumably not the street name for a rave drug) galore. Get on that RSVP.

Like I said not too long ago, I can't cover all of the CMJ goodness next week, but RSVP-ing to these extravaganzas is a good idea. Here's a post-CMJ one:

3) Local x Local free concert series at Brooklyn Bowl 11.2, this time it's Caveman. Great if you miss them over CMJ. Doors at 6p, show at 8p. RSVP here.
