Yup, it’s a Marathon alright. Between all the bands, daytime programming, official parties, non-official glom-ons, late night pop-up soirees, and—oh yeah, it’s all in New York City—the options are endless. But here is just a smattering of suggestions to kick your day into gear during CMJ Music Marathon 2015.
Breakfast, Lunch and Bands Presented By Sounds Australia – The Gallery @ Dream Downtown
Is there any better way to wake up than coffee and Australian noise? Pop in by 10 a.m. to see British India and Gordi; then come lunchtime (12:30), there’ll be more grub and groups like Northeast Party Horse, Harts and more throughout the afternoon. All brought to you by Sounds Australia.
College Day – The Gallery @ Dream Downtown
Of course we have college radio programming buzzing all through the Marathon. But Wednesday is the official College Day, and is always a highlight of the whole festival. Check the whole college radio schedule here
