The Best Shows of CMJ 2014

{

Someone needed to get Type A about these scheduling conflicts.

}

Impose Automaton | October 20, 2014

Hope you slept well this weekend because CMJ 2014 is about to wreak havoc on your REM cycle for the next week. We already know you’re coming to Palisades on Thursday for our showcase with Princess Nokia, Open Mike Eagle, Heems, Malportado Kids and Chris Gethard, among others, but there are five more relentless days of stacked line ups all over New York City.

We waded through the tidal wave of Facebook events, press releases, and off-the-record tips to bring you our choice shows, official or not, for CMJ 2014.

Get your ear plugs, Advil, and day planner ready because scheduling conflicts are getting real A-F.
