Well, it’s that time of year again: the CMJ Music Marathon, now in its 31st year, is set to take place here in the city from October 18-22, and today comes the first announcement of scheduled performers. It’s looking good so far, with indie-rock supergroup Wild Flag at the top of the list, followed by big, or big-ish, names like EMA, Talib Kweli, Neon Indian, Jean Grae, Pharoahe Monche, Handsome Furs and Zola Jesus. The rest of the list is here.
