I can’t believe it’s already (almost) that time of the year again.
As in past years, the CMJ Music Marathon brain-trust will host an invite-only artist announcement party tomorrow (8/27) somewhere in downtown Manhattan, where the first round of bands playing this year’s Music Marathon will be announced. There will also be live performances by Juan Wauters and Porches.
While the event is invite only, CMJ are offering a few people (21+) entry to the event if you enter this contest. You’ll also get some Champion swag. Contest winner will be informed of the location of the party prior to the event.
CMJ Music Marathon 2K14 runs from October 21-25 this year and boasts 1,400 artists in 80 venues in our fair city. If you’ve never attended, it’s basically like SXSW for New York City, except with less tech and overt sponsorship. Meaning… five days of live music, ’round the clock and sometimes free drinks. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
