Only in New York would there be a reputable music venue inside a bowling alley.
This is not a sketchy looking bowling ally either, each lane has a large leather plush couch, huge beer selection, and a pit for the concert. Pitchfork had the right idea charging only $10 for an 12 hr festival. Not having been to CMJ before, I didn’t realize how inconvenient it would be to catch multiple shows all over the city in one day. #Offline could not have made it any easier.

Lowlight: Avey Tare’s sleepy DJ set
Unexpected highlights- Sun Airway, and Baths
