Quotation: Blogs on blogs

At these CMJ shows there sometimes was as much documentation going on as partying, with audience members taking notes and constantly shooting digital images, probably destined for blogs on blogs. Even Gang Gang Dance, playing pulsating electronic dance beats topped with echoey vocals and glints of African and Caribbean music, had a hard time putting bodies into motion. On Tuesday afternoon Oxford Collapse, a Brooklyn band whose burly songs try to bridge post-punk and arena-rock, looked into its audience between songs and asked, “Anybody need time out to blog?”
