(New York, NY) Attending KCRW's CMJ Music Marathon events is like getting the answer key from your professor's top drawer a month before the final exam. You're guaranteed to ace the test. At this year's CMJ Music Marathon conference, the nation's tastemaker in independent music, 89.9 KCRW - Santa Monica and its 24/7 Internet-exclusive music service, KCRWMusic.com, offer you a cheat sheet on the bands that will be at the head of the class in the coming year. Last year, KCRW's CMJ picks included now-favorites She Wants Revenge, The 88, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Like and The Morning After Girls. This year KCRW's CMJ Music Marathon events will have you taking notes and referring back to them often as you see pick after pick ending up in the spotlight as the breakout bands of 2007!
