Baeble's CMJ Breakdown
  • MONDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2012

  • Posted by: Matt Howard

Catching the best acts at CMJ is a cumbersome task. It's even tough for us to keep track of what's going on and where. Luckily, Baeblemusic's ground correspondent Ilana Kaplan was kind enough to share the where's and when's of CMJ 2012. We received the following breakdown in an email from Ilana late Friday afternoon. I broke down a list of the shows you should attend/RSVP to/pay $5 to see (trust me, you'll be happy you did so). If I didn't list a dollar amount, the event is free. Most require an online RSVP, but are accessible on a "first come, first serve" basis. The best bands are in bold. If you have a CMJ badge, you can get into any show. I put a (*) next to the shows that I'm tentatively planning to attend. I RSVP'd to the Fader Fort and I have a +1, so if anyone wants to come with me one of the days just let me know. :) (I don't think this is for the readers, but give it a shot!) Without further ado, here are my top picks (tweet at me which ones you're attending):
