CMJ 2011 has officially kicked off with over 1,200 artists set to take over New York City this week. Electric Panda Music featured artist My Pet Dragon is playing a showcase this Saturday at Mercury Lounge along with today’s artist – Fresh Millions. Where My Pet Dragon leans toward the spiritual, these guys make up for it in pure sleaze.
In some ways, Fresh Millions’ “Control Freak” reminds me of my favorite song of 2010, Staygold’s “Backseat”, in that it’s funked up to the max and covered in references to casual sex. Is there a better way to spend your Saturday night?
Saturday, October 22nd – Mercury Lounge
My Pet Dragon 8pm
Fresh Millions 1am
