CMJ 2012 begins this week


CMJ’s 32nd year of its “Music Marathon” begins tomorrow night (October 16th) in New York City. The marathon is mostly about discovering new music, but also offers seminars, Q&A’s, meet and greets, among other things for ticket holders that you can purchase here.

The full schedule for this years festival is listed here, but My Free Concert put together a slightly less intimidating list of unofficial shows, as well as cheap/free CMJ showcases. Since this festival is about discovering new artists, most scheduled performers are on the unknown side, though skimming through the artists page we saw a few familiar names: Alexz Johnson (remember Instant Star?), Asher Roth, Q-Tip, and Teddy Geiger. If you’re looking for a fun show to discover new bands, head to Mercury Lounge on Saturday. We’ve seen Black Taxi perform numerous times, and they never disappoint.
