Attention NYC, here comes the 2010 CMJ Music Marathon and Film Festival. The ‘Stache will be attending this year to cover the wide array of films the festival is showcasing. I have to keep a little hush-hush right now in terms of the special treats they have for everyone to see. However, I will also be covering a lot of the musical acts this year for my friends over at the Art and Music web magazine, I Paint My Mind and some other fantastic publications.
This years popular guests include: Phoenix, GZA, U.N.K.L.E., Black Sheep, Four Tet, Helmet, Ghostface Killah, Kristen Schall and Friends (Mel from “Flight of the Conchords”) and Good Old War. There are close to 700 artists that will be performing people!
The festival will also offer panels and round table discussions for those trying to make their name in the industry or those just curious to know more about the world of music; even a seminar on Entertainment Law will be offered.
The CMJ festival does hold a special place in my heart, as it was at their festival that I first got the chance to see, The Mars Volta, live. So make sure you stay up to date if you want to catch your favorite act or check out one of the new up and comers out there. CMJ always showcases a handful of acts that blow up in the near future. Click here to make sure you know what is going on before it is too late and clear the calendar from October 19th through the 23rd.
