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...

Line & Circle

Los Angeles' Line & Circle will be touring the East Coast this fall, including a stay in NYC during CMJ. No real specifics to speak of but they will play the White Iris showcase on October 18, wherever that ends up happening. More details will surface when we get closer to the fest (which is getting close!).

White Iris is the influential singles-only label that released early 7"s by Best Coast, Fidlar, Electric Guest and No, the latter two being Line & Circle's tourmates for the non-CMJ dates on the tour. The band's sound owes more than a little to jangly '80s American college rock bands like Miracle Legion, Grapes of Wrath (Canadian, I know), The Connells, The Reivers, and other bands who came along in R.E.M.'s wake. It's definitely a sound that hasn't been dug out by very many new bands lately. You can stream both sides of their White Iris single below.

As previously mentioned, Electric Guest and No play Irving Plaza on October 20. Tickets for that show are still on sale, though it looks like Jinja Safari opens that instead of Line & Circle.

A list of all Line & Circle tour dates and those song streams are below.
