With October in full-bloom, CMJ season is here. And with our party with Berklee College of Music just 18 days away, it’s high time to start getting to know the participating bands filling Carroll Place with sound come Friday, October 24 in New York City.
Last week we spilled the basic details, and today we offer up an exclusive playlist mix that shows off the varied sounds of Boston & Beyond, the party series christened earlier this year when we first teamed with Berklee for SXSW.
Check out the Soundcloud mix below, which features current cuts from rootsy electronic pop act Smoke Season, infectious indie-pop collective Amy & The Engine, and the late-night Americana of Tumbleweed Company. There are also new tunes from Drunken Logic, Kate Diaz, the Western Den, and Boston & Beyond SXSW performers Los Rumberos de Massachusetts.
Flyer deets after the jump. Our event is open to all CMJ badge holders and there’s a $10 cover for the general public.
