CMJ Announces Initial Lineup and We’re Not Saying a Word

Now that we’re in the throes of the longest heat wave of the summer, the timing couldn’t have been better for CMJ to come along and offer a glimpse of what’s in store for us this fall, at the their annual Music Marathon, being held October 20-24. The initial lineup is below—but don’t look to us for any bitchy commentary. If we learned anything from organizing Northside, it’s that it sucks when people say mean things about you before you’re even done booking things. So we’re keeping quiet, at least for a few more weeks.

Here’s the list:

Broadcast, School Of Seven Bells, Zac Brown Band, Múm, Atlas Sound, Japandroids, Margaret Cho, the Budos Band, Pitbull, the Very Best, the Temper Trap, Crystal Antlers, Portugal. The Man, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Malajube, Local Natives, Wild Light, the Antlers, Das Racist, Suckers, Pissed Jeans and Screaming Females.

Man, if hadn’t already said there’d be no bitchy commentary, I definitely would have made a joke about Margaret Cho. Instead, I’ll just say this: there’s no way you’re getting into the Das Racist show.
