Summer is over and its time to whip out that leather jacket thats been agin in the back of your closet. Do your gritty album cover pose. Its time for the annual CMJ Music Marathon. I’ve personally seen many indie artists and bands blossom into crowd pleasing festival performers. This year will give birth to another round of music new comers. Who will catch our eyes and who will we root for? Stay tuned for CMJ highlights and reviews. In the meantime get familiar with a few of the promising artists which are part of the lineup this year.
