I still haven’t made it out this festival but tons of indie rockers cut their teeth in NYC around this time of year and around the CMJ events. Plus it’s a solid way for tons of folks in the industry to get together and finally meet each other face to face as opposed to electronic correspondence only. Maybe I’ll make it out to NYC this year after all…
Artists playing CMJ 2011:
Portugal. The Man
Dum Dum Girls
Art Vs. Science
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sea of Bees
…and many more to be announced soon!
