CMJ Showcase Spotlight: Genre-spinning indie rock gents Drunken Logic get the party started

This is the third in a week-long series of spotlights on the bands and artists performing at our CMJ party with Berklee College of Music this Friday, October 24 at Carroll Place in New York City. Seven Berklee-affiliated acts will participate in Boston & Beyond, an official CMJ Music Marathon showcase that is free to badgeholders and open to the general public (RSVP here). Doors are at 8 p.m. and the show runs until after 1 a.m. More info can be found here and here. To listen to all the participating bands, fire up our Soundcloud playlist.


Drunken Logic, 8 p.m. set time

By the time Drunken Logic rolls up to Carroll Place to kick off our CMJ party, the indie band will be a well-oiled machine, in the midst of eight shows over nine nights along the East Coast. The band’s show in New York (and the others, of course) help cap off a busy year for the Drunken Logic crew, who since forming in 2012 have already played everywhere from Fanueil Hall to San Francisco’s AT&T Park (these days they’re hotter than Hunter Pence).

In the same year they were RAW:Boston’s 2013 Musicians of the Year, the Logic crew dropped debut album Something New To Burn, which blended more genres and styles than we have room to list, all in the name of creating an eclectic fast-forward sound that’s shaken up after each track. By their very nature, CMJ showcase lineups are varied and genre-spanning, but rarely is a performing act so varied in style and substance, a notion perhaps best found on sing-along standout track “Empty Room.”

Drunken Logic is the brainchild of Jake Cassman (vocals, piano/keyboards), runner-up in Berklee College of Music’s Songs for Social Change competition in 2011, and messages of hope, despair, and the permanent place we reside in daily are reflected in the band’s lyrics.
