Another Year, Another CMJ Music Marathon. File under SUCCESS!Credit: Chad Batka for The New York Times
The CMJ Music Marathon has come to a close for another year, and as we symptomatically withdraw from nine Conveyor shows, 3 Pree shows, 2 showcases and a lot of free alcohol, we rejoice and reflect on our most successful CMJ to date *Happy Sigh*.
Let us brag… so did you see Conveyor in The New York Times, not once but thrice!? Jon Pareles took an early liking to the band with his opening article ‘CMJ: A Promising Start‘ setting the stage for praise upon praise from some of our favorite outlets such as Nylon, Bonnaroo, Grooveshark, Prefix Magazine, QRO Magazine, Verbicide and a ton more. They made two more appearances in the times, firstly on Mr Pareles’ CMJ Spotify Playlist and secondly with a couple of snaps taken at their Fontana’s Showcase!
While we may have provided the music, our lovely sponsors are to thank for turning the party-knotch up to 11 with free beer flowing from Speakeasy Beers, free wine from HobNob, and of course 4 bicycles given away thanks to Schwinn!
Oh, and you know even though CMJ is over, our engines are still running and there is plenty more chances coming up to see our bands in NYC and beyond. Here’s a few excuses to see us again..
