CMJ just ended. And now CMJ is here again.
Well, you can at least now submit your music for consideration by the the CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival's panel of experts, who will then decide whether or not you are good enough to play the festival next year and possibly become a buzz band.
All the fame and backlash could be yours! Good luck!
It's $25 to submit your music right now, and after Jan. 6 the price goes up. If you register on June 26 you are cutting it close, because that's the last day to register.
Speaking of early-bird savings (transitions!), CMJ is currently offering badges to attend the marathon next year at the lowest possible discount they will offer for them. Seriously. You can get a badge for 45 percent off the regular rate, or 70 percent off the regular rate with a student ID. You should jump on that, as the price will only go up as the year goes on.
A badge costs $300.
The 2012 CMJ Music Marathon & Film Festival will take place at various New York venues from Oct. 16 through Oct. 20. Math The Band will headline.
