The 32nd annual CMJ MUSIC MARATHON has crept up on us all but that’s a poor excuse not to pack your favourite snapback or fuzzy sweater for a trip to the East Coast. From October 16th-20th in the heart of New York, hordes of bands, bloggers and music junkies will scour the city for their favourite acts and while notables such as Dum Dum Girls, Killer Mike and Com Truise will be beating ears to death, there’s a lot more to sample. 1,300+ artists means a new addiction worth taking back to your parents/roommates and here are 30 different acts worth clinging onto.
