For one week every October, New York City comes together in search of the best new musical acts. The CMJ Music Marathon is full of seemingly nonstop performances, both day and night, transforming the city into its stage. While CMJ celebrated their 35th anniversary as one of the world's most important platforms for the discovery of new music, we hosted our inaugural showcase for them. On the final day of the week we brought together a few of our favorite artists for an afternoon show at Arlene's Grocery. If you couldn't make it out, or you just want to relive the experience again, check out a recap of the afternoon.
