Parties to RSVP for during or around the week of the CMJ Music Marathon. Some might cost a few dollars, some might be free. NOTE: Most of these are unofficial CMJ related events that you won't find on their website. Adding every show would be kinda overwhelming, don't ya think? Sorry if I repeat anything twice or a link dies in here. We would suggest figuring out which ones you wanna go to like a few days before, maybe. It's kinda intense... A lot to keep track of in a very limited amount of time. Please send tips to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will heart you. Enjoy!
