​CMJ is in the full swing in New York and reports are already coming back from our sister paper, the Village Voice. Zach Baron, in particular, reports on Surfer Blood's performance at Cake Shop. Unfortunately, the West Palm Beach band seems to be getting some heat for accepting so many invitations to perform during the week. Barson muses, "By Saturday, they'll be an entirely different band, if they don't break up before then." Good luck, guys! Prove 'em wrong.
