KEXP Video of the Week: A Place to Bury Strangers live @ CMJ

There were some really loud performances during KEXP’s live broadcast from Gibson Showroom during the 2008 CMJ Music Marathon — from bands like All The Saints, Johnny Foreigner, and Freshkills — but undoubtedly the loudest of all came from A Place to Bury Strangers, a group whose extreme decibel level had even caused the NYC police to shut down a CMJ club show earlier in the week! While the Brooklyn trio of Oliver Ackermann (guitar & vocals), Jono MOFO (bass), and Jay Space (drums) didn’t call the cops this time around, the sonic shredding was intense enough to make host John Richards exclaim, “Times like that I wish I could swear on the radio.”
