Other Nights of the Week: CMJ Cheat Sheet


CMJ kicks off today, promising hundreds of bands, dozens of venues and countless industry flacks wielding their badges like swords to cut the line. Although we tend to think that paying $500 for a week’s worth of live music is pretty steep, we’re more than happy to crash the marathon’s best showcases – for an average of ten bucks a pop.

Here are our picks for each day of CMJ… and a couple of options for those seeking sweet relief from the madness.
