It’s day two of CMJ Music Marathon, meaning there’s still a long road ahead for badgeholders looking to cram in as much as possible over the next four days. Fortunately, CMJ is here to lend a helping hand, with some expert advice on which artists to see throughout the day. Remember, it’s a Marathon not a sprint, although you may need to quicken your pace when you see what we’ve got in store for you across the city.

Make sure you check back in with us over the coming days for more tips on artists to see, panels to attend, parties to be seen at, and much more.


01. Local Natives @ Bowery Ballroom

The headliners of this Champion-sponsored showcase have received plenty of accolades for their 2009 debut, Gorilla Manor, which combined psychedelic rock with folkier stylings. This show rounds out a line-up that includes SKATERS, San Cisco, Pacific Air and Solid Gold.

02. Dum Dum Girls @ Glasslands Gallery

Dum Dum Girls started by interlacing retro pop with the beautiful darkness of the Jesus And Mary Chain. This year’s End Of Daze EP suggests their songwriting skills are improving at a furious pace, making this a must-see show in the tiny surroundings of Glasslands.
