The 2011 CMJ Music Festival just ended this weekend, and on Sunday I was thrilled to perform at uber-cool Wrap Party at The Ariel Publicity Cyber PR Offices in Brooklyn.
There were 3-floors of awesome going on, and I "Crashed The Party" with a few thousand friends via Google+! We set up an official "Google+ Hangout Room" on the top floor and played and chatted all day with people from The UK, US, Portugal, South Africa, Ukraine and more...
Including of course the invite-only crowd of bands, music industry insiders, the wonderful staff and hostess-with-the-mostess, Ariel Hyatt herself.
There were more bands playing downstairs (by the end of the night we were pulled on for a "main stage" set as well!) and they would pop up to say hi and meet our global entourage as the day wore on...
Mid-afternoon up the stairs came the guys from a gorgeous bluegrassy BK band called Jones Street Station (http://www.jonesstreetstation.net)
... And the next thing we knew, their harmonica player, Jonathan was sitting in on a cover of Jackson 5's "Want You Back" with us! ;-)
It was a fantasticly fun day that ran well into the night. Thank you to everyone who joined the Hangout, watched the livestream and who we met at the party!
LET'S BE FRIENDS!
MORE MUSIC & MERCH!

Ps. I've seen Ariel speak at SXSW and CMJ in the past, and was recently interviewed for her Sound Advice Video Series, where I talked all about my life-changing / career-sky-rocketing experience on Google+. I'll post that here when it comes out too! :-)
