CMJ 2013

The 2013 CMJ Music Marathon happens from October 15 - 19 at clubs all over New York City. As we've been tweeting about at @BVCMJ, tonight (8/27), the CMJ folks held an announcement party at Bowery Electric with live performances from Weekend and Magic Man.

They also announced their initial line-up for this year's fest, which includes Kevin Drew, The Long Winters, Real Estate, Obits, The Dismemberment Plan (Terminal 5), Pelican (who are playing both of our Invisible Oranges showcases at Saint Vitus), Jacco Gardner, Good Riddance, Godflesh, Eagulls, the Pendu Sound showcase, and many more.

We'll have a set of pics from Weekend and Magic Man soon, but for now peruse the full initial CMJ 2013 line-up below.

While NYC didn't get to experience most of its Halloween events (including the Halloween Parade) this year due to Hurricane Sandy, over in London they celebrated with a Day of the Dead Festival in the Old VIc Tunnels, presented by Wahaca ("mexican market eating).

We caught some of the multi-day festival on Saturday (11/3) where we saw Rodrigo y Gabriela, and VadoInMessico,, some Day of the Dead-themed visual art, photography, and performance art. Pictures from the event are in this post. More below...
