Last year, we caught Brooklyn’s Black Taxi at CMJ Music Marathon and this year, the band will again be a part of CMJ with spots on at least three showcases, the No Shame event on October 18th at 2 pm at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn, then in Manhattan for two gigs on the 19th, at Madison House event in the morning at Rockwood and to the Mercury Lounge again that night. From the way the band’s sound has developed in the past year (listen to the Chiaroscuro EP stream below), I’d be eager to catch them again. Astheir shows are already explosive, this stronger and more confident core of songs will allow for a larger presence on stage.
