CMJ Music Marathon 2012

Now until Oct 20th, hundreds of bands and music fans will take over New York City for the annual CMJ Music Marathon.  While CMJ may lack the “big names” you find at Coachella and Lollapalooza, it totally makes up for it with shear volume.  There are soooo many bands and artists playing, it’s actually a bit nerve wrecking, trying to decide which acts to see.  But what really makes CMJ rad, is the music discovery aspect.  This is where you’ll see the next “big name” and it will be in a random Manhattan basement with 10 other lucky people.  Personally, this is the music festival I want to attend most.  One of these days my dream will become a reality, but until then I am happy writing about it.  And hopefully helping this year’s attendees deal with the daunting task of combing through all the music they have at their fingertips.  So if you’re having a tough time deciding who to see this week, consider these artists/bands.  And last but not least, have fun discovering your new favorite band.

CMJ 2012

CMJ Music Marathon is set to take over New York City this year, from Oct. 16 – 20.  This is one of my bucket list festivals and though i’ve never been, I highly recommend it.  CMJ may lack the “big names” you find at Coachella and Lollapalooza, but totally makes up for it with shear volume.  There are soooo many bands and artists playing, it’s actually a bit nerve wrecking, trying to decide which acts to see.  But what really makes CMJ rad, is the music discovery aspect.  This is where you’ll see the next “big name” and it will be in a random Manhattan basement with 10 other lucky people.

With that said, the initial music lineup was recently announced and it includes some of my favorites, including Exitmusic, GenerationalsGeographerGZAThe LuyasMNDRThe Mountain GoatsTalib Kweli, and The Walkmen.  Check out the complete list below and be sure to check in often with CMJ for more updates.
