The cost of a CMJ Music Marathon badge -- which gets you into the convention floor and the many panel discussions in addition to the nighttime showcases -- has been out of the range of most non-industry music fans. But this year, CMJ is offering a Evening Showcase Pass for $159 via LivingSocial. Compare that to the current $549 pricetag for a full badge. Like with a badge, entry to shows via the Evening Showcase Pass is "first come, first serve based on venue capacities and restrictions."
Invisible Oranges' two night showcase at Saint Vitus (October 17 & 18) is headlined both nights by Pelican. BrooklynVegan will be at CMJ too and stay tuned for details on our showcases and day parties.
