Seven auspicious acts ranging from indie upstarts to progressive pop amalgamators hit the stage at Arlene’s Grocery for the 2011 BMI-presented, Lewitt-sponsored CMJ Music Marathon Festival showcase, held on October 20 in New York City. The 31st Annual CMJ Music Marathon Festival took over Greenwich Village from October 18-22, providing emerging artists an opportunity to play in New York’s renowned venues.

Attendees at the BMI-sponsored showcase were treated to performances from hook-laden Ambassadors, intelligent indie-rockers The Pernikoff Brothers, and crowd-rousers Nightmare and the Cat, among others. BMI also sponsored a day party with MCT Management and Tortoise & Blonde at the downtown haunt Bowery Electric.
