Next year I’ll get more photos, but for NOW, big thanks to Kelly from CJLO for sharing these! From left, actually, there’s Kelly (CJLO World Music Director), Joni (CKUT Music Director), Beansie (CJLO Station Manager), and yours truly (fuck, I miss having a radio show). Hey, Montreal: way to represent.
That’s Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls DJing (right), and her friend Tamaryn, who swapped boots with me. I feel totally okay/good about all of this. Wish I had a picture of Stasia from THEESatisfaction, who’s DJ skills were jawdroppingly perfect.
This picture is questionable because in reality I’m straddling Kelly (the photographer), but it just looks like I’m spreading my legs. Pinky out, duh.
Well isn’t my co-host cute? I call this Wet Hot American Sasha; major Janeane Garofalo vibes.
Pondering so hard, the important pressing questions of CMJ: “Wine? Or, more wine? Maybe a beer?” Thanks again to all that came out and congrats to the Dr. Martens winners!
Thanks again to all who came out to GET UPs & GET DOWN on Wednesday! We’ll draw the raffle for a pair of Dr. Martens today, so if you attended the event, be sure to keep an eye on your inbox…
We’re stoked to announce our CMJ party on Friday October 18 at Union Pool, featuring The Can’t Tells, Bad Cop, Heliotropes, Diane Coffee, Cub Sport, Sunwolf, and DJ Neal Sugarman (of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings). Party kicks off at 5:30 with a DJ set from Neal Sugarman (Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, The Sugarman 3) and FREE BEER c/o Brooklyn Brewery. Come hang early with us to preview the new Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings record, swill Brooklyn lager, and dance to Daptone Records jams. You’re welcome. RSVP HERE!
It has been really nice to meet some of you this week, and tonight is my other party. My day job party? My CMJ party for Distiller! Come hang out and I will give you a taco and a beer and a hug.
I am excited to swap my clothes with you and hang out and drink stuff and dance. Don’t forget to come to Good Co on Wednesday 10/16 for a FREE CMJ MIXER with Broadist, Sub Pop, and Dr. Martens. DJ sets by THEESatisfaction and Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls. Only great things can come of this.
hocket asked: Hey there! With the Doc. Martens comp do we choose the shoes if we win? Thank you!! Hope you're doing well!
Hi! Yes, you may select any pair of shoes from the site with the exception of “For Life” product and collaboration product. Good luck! Hope to see you at our party, too.

Ahhhh I enjoy this photo and my boots a little too much. The last post didn’t divulge all the necessary details so I thought I’d spell CMJ out for you here.
I work in college/non-comm radio promo, so the CMJ (college music journal) festival in NY each October is like, the height of busy and fun for me. Last year I decided that I could fester in the music industry bromance no longer, and wanted to host a lady-organized/run CMJ party. SO I am doing that (in the name of Broadist), and y’all are invited. Save the date for Wednesday October 16. THEESatisfaction and Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls will DJ. Sub Pop and Dr Martens will give stuff away. We shall dance, swap clothes, and swill beverages. RSVP HERE!
I’m also stoked to announce the Distiller Promo showcase on Friday October 18. That’ll be free and full of great times as well, with the full lineup announcement happening on Monday. RSVP here!
In case you can’t make it to CMJ, don’t forget to enter our giveaway with Dr. Martens here on Broadist. <3

Hey, you know what’s cool? Realizing something that matters to you.
For me what this means is partnering with Sub Pop and Dr. Martens for a lady-hosted lady-run CMJ party. For you, what this means is a Dr. Martens giveaway in anticipation of said party.
As usual, all you need to do is reblog this post. The winner will be selected at random on Monday October 14, and all countries are eligible. We have your back, and wanted to make sure that EVERYONE (CMJ-festival-attending or not) has a chance to win. Oh, and did we mention we’ll be giving away ANOTHER pair at the party?
Kindly anticipate drinks, hugs, vinyl, dancing, boots, and all your wildest dreams coming true… save the date for Wednesday, October 16. Details to be announced. Follow Broadist (twitter / facebook), Sub Pop (twitter / facebook), and Dr. Martens (twitter / facebook) for more details.
