As if I won't be seeing enough bands this week during CMJ, at the last minute I decided to drive down to NYC on Saturday to see The Kooks, a show that definitey made up for the eight hour round trip drive. To make matters worse, the wind and rain was horrible until I was almost in the city, but the weather eventually cleared up and it turned out to be a great night. The best thing about the show was how The Kooks' album is filled with hits -- all of the songs were great, so the show was a non-stop singalong. As for Boston shows this week, I am leaving for NYC this afternoon and I get back on Sunday, but the good news is that there are a ton of great shows in town, it really is impossible for me to pick a show to preview. In addition, I'll have updates from CMJ throughout the week.
