CMJ has announced the initial lineup for the 2012 Music Marathon. The CMJ Music Marathon, taking place between October 16-20, will feature The Walkmen, The Presets, Mountain Goats, Kimbra and a slew of other great acts. Check out the lineup here.
To celebrate the announcement, CMJ threw a little party at Mercury Lounge that let attendees get to know who will be playing the festival. In addition to getting to know who will play, Tanlines and Sinkane played live sets. I enjoyed Sinkane’s rhythmic set that had some interesting diversion and some pretty interesting songs, be sure to catch them when they hit CMJ in October. Tanlines was the best way to end the night. Playing songs off of Mixed Emotions, Tanlines hit the right groove to the revelers.
