what to see during CMJ

It’s that time of year again…the CMJ Music Marathon comes to NYC and we’ll be covering it with photographer Helen Pearson who’s shot bands for pretty much every major music publication there is (you can see a bit of her work to the left). We always look forward to CMJ because of the new bands that break plus we’re obsess over what’s coming next. Last year we did a weekend of shows with our friends at FIXED, and this year promises to be even better. Read on.
