BoldasLIVE CMJ Showcase

Cmj08logo_3

I’m currently in the early stages of putting together a showcase at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon.  It’ll be slightly different from the BoldasLIVE format that I rolled out last year with Nona Hendryx and The Family Stand.  For CMJ, it’ll be a straight showcase: I’m thinking it’ll be 4-5 artists/bands from across the Black rock spectrum.  I’ve got a few people in mind, but am open to suggestions (Hint: Get at me ASAP!)

Deadlines?  I’ve got to present the lineup to CMJ in the next few weeks, so if you’d like to be down, ping me here with some links to you or your band’s site.
