On UKNY tonight at 11, a quick look back at a few of the bands that made a very good impression at the CMJ Music Marathon this week, like the ferociously fun Joanna Gruesome and New Zealand's Ghost Wave, this week's Commonwealth Cut.
Expect an "Ode to Banksy," the provocative British artist who has been in residence in New York City this month, plus new releases from Kwes, Femme, Peggy Sue and more.
Join me on UKNY, Saturday nights at 11p.m. EDT following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
Running around to CMJ shows tonight? You can find UKNY in the FUV archives up to two weeks after broadcast.
