Square Zeros Show Listings, CMJ Edition, Tuesday–Saturday, October 21–25

If the event name bears out, this might be the first and last CMJ show you attend. Ginger Core Kills CMJ presents our favorite psychic slack rockers Chimes (Win Scarlett, SZ #18) via a staggered pricing system that pays you in pizza to come early and charges you not unfairly to come later. Show up fashionably early to get down w/ Dream Police, Survival, Psychic Blood, Natural Velvet, Sediment Club at Silent Barn 5:30pm FREE before 8pm/$5 8-10pm/$10 10pm-2am LINK


If you've got no cash and need somewhere to go after your free pizza, Motown punks Sunset Guns (Derek Hawkins and Jon Mann, SZ #10) will be warming up CMJ with some out-of-town rockers for a post-party party w/ Faux Ferocious (Knoxville), iVamanos!, Fine Peduncle (Nashville), The Unders at Legion 9pm FREE LINK
