CMJ Music Festival
Well over 1,000 bands will take over New York City's rock clubs during this massive annual celebration of indie music. Also on tap: the usual assortment of seminars, parties, meet-and-greets and panels. The event is famously cutting-edge, having showcased U2, Lady Gaga and R.E.M. before they were stars. This year's lineup includes performances by Savages, The Dismemberment Plan, Eleanor Friedberger and many more.
