Before the city loses itself to CMJ's swaths, the festival's 1,000+ bands need to prepare accordingly, so we thought we’d show you how one band preps for one of their most hectic weeks of the year. We spent some time with local "weird pop" band Emil & Friends at Ultra Sound Rehearsal Studios as they polished their live show, which will be chock full of new songs off their recently released debut full-length, Lo & Behold (Cantora Records). Here, they perform a new track, "Endless Waves," and talk festival highlights. [blip]video2[/blip]
