One of the things we always get excited about in October is the CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival. In just over two weeks, we’ll be covering all sorts of shows for you. This year, we’re looking forward to shows fromThe Blow, Ghostface Killah, GZA, DeVotchKa, Phoenix, and returning guests School of Seven Bells. That’s just to start with. Also, being a lover of all things française, I can’t wait for film screenings of L’Enfant Prodige and Gainsbourg & His Girls. CMJ Festival takes place from the 19th til the 23rd of October in New York City. Are there any bands you’re particularly excited about? Let us know in the comments and we’ll try to hit them up. (The entire schedule is available here).
