One Night Stand // CyCy Sanders

The 600 or so Arcade Players who flocked to the Bowery Hotel for our inaugural CMJ-week bash weren’t the only ones inspired by the sounds of Motel Motel, Millionyoung, Evan Voytas, and Brahms. “The fresh sounds of the bands reminded me that it’s most fun to keep reinventing my work,” says filmmaker CyCy Sanders, who flitted about the crowd capturing the excitement of an evening we billed as “One Night Stand”. With beats by Austin’s DJ Mike Swing between sets, a bombastic sound system by In Concert Audio smoothing the tunes, and four of the most exciting new bands of the moment onstage, it was a one night stand we’ll never forget.
