Marnie Stern , U.N.K.L.E., British Sea Power, Xiu Xiu In For CMJ Marathon

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff

The College Music Journal, a.k.a. CMJ, has announced the initial set of acts for its 2007 CMJ Marathon, a culmination of who's who and who's gonna be who over the next year. It's set to go down from October 16-20 at various venues in New York.

Some of the band names confirmed so far include Spoon, U.N.K.L.E. (the return!), British Sea Power, Xiu Xiu, Vietnam, and Mates of State, to name a few. There'll be thoudands of acts before they're done naming names, so this is just a small slice of what's to come.

Panels incude titles like "The Almighty Blog," "College Radio 2.0," and "Major Label Dilemma: Get In or Get Out of the Way." Heady topics indeed, with peeps from all over the industry gathering at NYU to talk big ideas.

And you now MUST have a film festival if you do a music festival. There must be some indie stone tablets somewhere that dictate this as a rule, because most festivals these days seem to think music=film. CMJ is no different, but they're still taking submissions at this point and haven't announced any finalists.
