Returning for a 14th edition, The CMJ Music Marathon never fails at gathering the best of all ‘now’ music for a five days heavy frenzy in New York city. Held through Oct 21-25, we count proudly count on Montreal representatives En force, with Montrealers with Solids, Lisa Leblanc, The Posterz, Random Reciepe and The Muscadettes to get the party going. Festival line-up also features The Kills, Wildlife, Cold War Kids, Bombay Bicycle Club, Slowdive and Courtney Barett amongst the 1300 artists performing during the week. Wish us luck, for the survival of the fittest rules apply in such marathon conditions.
