CMJ badges look much more modern these days. They also cost much more these days - $495 to be exact (at today's non-student rate). Now one can be yours for free, courtesy of Yep Roc Records, home of Mercury Rev, Robyn Hitchcock, Loudon Wainwright III, Billy Bragg and many others. CMJ runs in NYC from October 21-25. To win this badge...

To win: Email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: CMJ). Include your first and last name and age. One winner will be contacted randomly. As always, your email will not be shared with anyone. Good luck.
