CMJ Fundraising Party in Portland Tonight

Tonight at the Bayside Bowl in Portland, our friends at HillyTown are hosting a fundraising party for the Maine-based bands making the trek down to NYC for this year's CMJ festival.  The party will feature some of the musicians spinning DJ sets, playing solo sets and covers, and, of course, drinks and bowling.  HillyTown is shooting for $1,500; the first $1,000 will go to travel expenses for the bands, while the remainder will help to pay for sound engineering and other expenses for the "Maine vs. New York Day Party" HillyTown is hosting at CMJ in conjunction with the New York-based Battering Room.  

The Maine-based bands that will perform at CMJ are all fantastic and are deserving of every bit of help.  The Maine vs. New York Day Party is a free, afternoon showcase on Saturday, 10/23, at Brooklyn's The Rock Shop.  It will feature three Maine-based bands and four New York-based bands.  For a complete list of the bands performing at the Day Party, and for a list of the other Maine bands performing at CMJ, head over to HillyTown's Kickstarter page.  While you're at it, throw in a few bucks.

The fundraising party is tonight at 7pm, so get a move on!  But, in case you can't make it to the party (we're late on reporting this to you, we understand)... did we mention their Kickstarter page?
