And somehow I found myself commenting today on the Drumadics page "Hey Drumadics, I'll be playing buckets today at 42nd Street Times Square if you want to come by and check me out", as if it is some sort of New York City subway musician battle of the bucket bands or something. Though I really do not think I will be playing buckets today at 42nd Street times Square. And that CMJ Music Festival must be happening soon. I know because The Village Voice , New York Press , L Magazine and a bunch of other publications says so. And as usual this CMJ music event seems as if it is the end all to be all of the music world when it comes to all indie rock music and more. And some of the scheduled performers for this years CMJ Music Marathon are:
