We showed up with tons of energy and excitement about five days of indie music splendor in New York and left with more friends, less money, and a ridiculous amount of evidence as to why this is better than your typical festival.
QRO finally made it out to Brooklyn on the last day of CMJ for a limited, but high-quality, night.
Recap
 
After starting late on Day Three, QRO hit Day Four as early as possible – and still rocked well into the A.M.
Recap
 
Day Three started late and ended late with QRO leaving The Bowery for the first time at CMJ.
Recap
 
After an amazing day one, QRO returned to the CMJ trail on day two, focusing Los Angeles bands in the Bowery.
Recap
 
CMJ started off with a bang on Tuesday, October 16th, as the Puck Building turned into indie-kid central during the day, only to migrate to Bowery Ballroom that night.
