The CMJ Music Marathon takes over the New York City music scene every fall with panels, workshops and week-long events, but some people are really just there to dig the new tunes.
Living Social is offering a golden ticket, a coveted CMJ badge for five nights of showcases with access to more than 1,400 bands. Living Social's showcase-only deal is a small fraction of the full badge price.
The fine print: venues limit the number of CMJ badges, so get your pass and get to the venues in the early evening next week.
CMJ Music Marathon is from October 15-19. Check out the full CMJ Music Marathon 2013 schedule, and follow Kate Spalla for Examiner.com for CMJ tips, guides and coverage.
