CMJ Artists Announced


As if temperatures this summer haven't been hot enough, they are about to get warmer with the announcement of the first round of performers slated to take the stage at the 2007 CMJ Music Marathon. Kicking off October 16, this year's festival is moving downtown and will provide music fans and industry buffs a slew of eclectic and buzz-worthy acts. As previously announced, UNKLE will be making their first instrument-donned show at Webster Hall on October 18. Also, dance-rockers Justice and crowd favorite Dan Deacon are guaranteed to keep you out until the wee hours of the morning. The Brunettes will be coming from a land far far away (i.e. New Zealand), and ditto for the UK's own British Sea Power and Simian Mobile Disco. And let us not forget indie mainstays Spoon, who will close out the festival with a set at Roseland Ballroom on the 20th. Check out the list of additional performers below and stay tuned for more artist announcements in the weeks to come.

Who cares? Probably a bunch of people who are interested in hearing new and different music??? If that doesn't appeal to you, check out
The Brunettes are really good live. Total power pop.
Rodrigo Y Gabriela can blow the doors off any musicians out there cept Solas.
Dirtbombs kill and Mute Math are good too.
As for Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, no idea who they are, but bitchin' name!

yeah kirkbrew - you should definitely check out del with either his hip hop super group hieroglyphics or deltron "Del, kid koala, and dan the auotomater" - they both kill it.

j-bizzle - Too correct! Just checked out Del on-line. I can get behind that. He was on the first Gorillaz album too. I thought that was one of the guys in Blackalicious. Cool. I reckon hip-hop ain't totally dead.
MAy need to go to NYC.

Del is one of the funkiest homosapiens on Earth, and "Deltron 3030" is a killer album. Anyone who raps about computer viruses and makes it sound cool is alright with me. Spoon is also a very good live act.
