You can catch CEG in a million places this week. They play Oh My Rockness’ CMJ Showcase tonight, Public Assembly w/ Vice tomorrow, Le Poisson Rouge on Friday, Brooklyn Vegan’s party at Pianos on Saturday, and a Showpaper Benefit at Market Hotel later Saturday night.

But we’ll leave it up to you to decide which is which (comment thread, I’m talking to you!). Basically here’s a rundown of the things we wish we had a time machine for, in no particular order, officially and unofficially CMJ.
Sadly, this music editor is only one girl, and I’ll be trying to keep you posted on what’s the shit, and what just smells like it, so follow us on twitter if you’re in a stalking kind of mood and wanna buy me a drink.
