OrganicArma is one of a handful local bands who won a spot to play an official CMJ showcase through SonicBids. Their CMJ debut took place last Tuesday at the Ace of Clubs, on Great Jones Street in the East-ish Vilage. Here's a quick video probided by the folks at SonicBids, with a few seconds of performance and an interview afterwards. It looks like, for this gig, they eschewed much of their usual costumes and make-up, and performed as just a duo instead of a trio. Still, in the half-minute we get here, it seems like they managed to build up a pretty good groove.
