CMJ Covers Reveal Magnificence
If you're planning a trip to the big apple, do it in October. CMJ has announced their initial lineup for the balls out festival and I can hardly contain myself. It almost makes me want to go back to the nine hour days I was spending in their office last year; free all access passes are pretty bomb. Bands in bold are where you'll find FMLY.

Skipping over the larger names either because I've seen them or I don't want to be in a jam packed crowd, who do you recommend? I'm pretty pumped to see Rumspringa make it out to NY and I couldn't be more excited to hear Beach House's new summer-infused tunes.
