KEXP is always good for some intimate & live-broadcasted CMJ performances, and this year is no different, except for the venue:

CMJ Union | 27 Union Square West | New York, NY

CMJ presents its own venue and social hub as part of CMJ Music Marathon 2012. CMJ Union is a bustling meeting point designed to bring together the festival's many different strands, providing space for badgeholders to mingle with press, panelists and artists. It's a place where ideas and information can be exchanged through exclusive mixers and parties, where guests can experience artist performances broadcast live by KEXP, and where tips on where to go and who to see ping back and forth across the room.


As part of the festivities at CMJ Union, CMJ and Seattle radio station KEXP have teamed up for an exclusive broadcast event. KEXP returns to the festival to host a live transmission. KEXP DJ's John Richards and Cheryl Waters will spin in between sets.

All KEXP events are free and open to the public. Only non-CMJ badgeholders are required to RSVP, though RSVP does not guarantee entry. All entry will be on a first come, first serve basis. 18+ only. Check out the schedule below...

Kind of a shame how KEXP has moved from a trend setter/chance taker to a trend follower/no risk taker.

Get your CMJ badge if you haven't already! It's going to be such a great week!
