CMJ announces dates for 2007

The New York music marathon is moving downtown

The dates of this year’s CMJ music marathon have been revealed, and it has been announced that the conference’s base will move to downtown Manhattan.

The industry showcases will take place between October 16 and 20, and will be based at the city’s Puck Building as opposed to its recent home at Lincoln Centre in midtown. Events will take place at various New York University locations, with showcases as usual taking place across a variety of the city’s venues and clubs.

Last year’s CMJ highlights included a performance from The Horrors during which Faris Rotter was involved in a bloody fight with an audience member.
