The Metal Lungies Guide to CMJ 2011, NYC.

We’re accustomed to having the best of everything in New York, but the CMJ Music Marathon is basically a baby version of South by Southwest. But that’s not to say there aren’t shows to see. We’ve listed our picks below and will update with more as we find them. In fact, if you notice my swagged out visage at the Tastemakers Lounge on Thursday, greet me as KNOBBZXL the Knobbzfather and you’ll get a free Metal Lungies keychain. I look like this.
