CMJ Adds Phoenix, Ghostface, UNKLE, Vanderslice
Word from BrooklynVegan that CMJ, the week-long music and media extravaganza, has added a few high-profile acts to its annually ginormous roster, including Phoenix, Ghostface, UNKLE and John Vanderslice. The way the festival works is sort of weird - instead of being an enclosed series, most CMJ showcases are also normal shows, with fans having the option of either buying a ticket normally and being guaranteed entry, or getting an (expensive) badge and getting in on a first-come, first-served basis.
For especially hyped shows, getting in can be challenging for badges, and there's always a bit of uncertainty. The Pheonix show, at Madison Square Garden, is probably going to be really tough to get into.
CMJ runs from Oct. 19 to 23
