CMJ Announcement!

The CMJ Music Marathon is five days of non-stop music featuring rising national talent rocking out across New York City. This year also marks the first-ever "Portland, Maine Official CMJ Showcase". On Saturday, October 23rd, 7 bands from Maine will play at Trash Bar in Brooklyn, NY. The show starts at 8 pm, the cover is $7 or free with a CMJ badge, and features Foam Castles, Marie Stella, The Class Machine, Dead Man’s Clothes, The Lucid, Holy Boys Danger Club, and Good Kids Sprouting Horns!. Open bar for the first hour and cheap drinks plus karaoke after the show.

If that wasn't enough, Portland's preeminent music blog, Hillytown, will also be presenting an unofficial day party in conjunction with New York's The Battering Room. This "Portland vs New York" showcase takes place on Friday, October 22nd at Park Slope's Rock Shop with Phantom Buffalo, Jesse Pilgrim, and Brenda representing Maine. They will square off against New Numbers, Mussels, and Milagres. Recent Maine-transplant/New York ex-pat Greg Jamie (o'Death, Blood Warrior) will straddle the divide.

Eternal Otter Records is thrilled to announce that we will be joining the list of sponsors for this event, which also includes SPACE Gallery and Maine Magazine.
