NMFL has been gaining support since their indie star-studded first national release, Sing For Your Meat: A Tribute to Guided By Voices, The No More Fake Labels showcase boasts some pretty impressive artists and guests too, including Kelley Deal of the Breeders amongst others, and New Town Drunks are honored to have been invited to participate.  Here’s the lineup for the full showcase:

  • 10:45 – Saint Lips (Rome, Italy) https://www.facebook.com/pages/Saint-Lips/88072270823

Keeping with the spirit of No More Fake Labels as an “artist first” resource, there will also be artwork contributed by NYC fixture, Anton Perich (founder of Night magazine, NYC’s first nightlife photo mag, contributing photographer to Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine and creator of the painting machine which later led to the first inkjet printers), and spoken word and storytelling between bands by musician and writer of all things sex, drugs and rock-n-roll, Mike Edison (former publisher of High Times magazine, author of rock-n-roll bios and books and scribe to Penthouse, Hustler and more.)

The first 50 CMJ badge holders in the door will receive goody bags filled with music and other goodies from No More Fake Labels, New Town Drunks, and several other artists that were not able to attend CMJ this year. Including a copy of the NMFL Guided By Voices tribute album which includes tracks from The Flaming Lips, Thurston Moore, Crooked Fingers, Western Civ, Kelley Deal and Buffalo Killers, Blitzen Trapper, La Sera and more!!
