CMJ Announces First Round Of Artists
    • TUESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2011

    • Posted by: Joe Puglisi

    The CMJ music marathon is New York City's biggest and longest lasting music festival, which also with its scattered nature and endless array of events all over the boroughs, coincidentally best reflects the fact that New York City is a music festival all year round with endless shows happening at all times. BUT. CMJ is an opportunity to wear a badge! They've announced the first round of artists for this year and so far, it's sounding pretty tasty.

    Via the CMJ blog, the Marathon let a few names drop. They include one of our favorite new acts breaking into America, Metronomy, as well as a few tried and true favorites like Neon Indian, Handsome Furs, and CSS. Some Baeble picks already have slots lined up, like GIVERS, Datarock, and EMA, and we're sure that list will grow.

    Check out the full lineup. It's worth noting that some of the acts merely have shows in New York that coincide with CMJ's dates, and aren't necessarily official events (although are sometimes billed as part of the Marathon anyway). Check out the full list below.
