The highly anticipated CMJ 2013 music marathon kicks off today! It won't be long before you'll spot crowds of marathon attendees roaming the streets of New York City attending the wide array of special music events. This year's lineup is sure to leave attendees with many showcase options to fit their music appetite. Let's face it, it would be unrealistic to think you can attend all of the 1400 or so shows in store this season and to catch all the top notch performances.
CMJ 2013 music marathon lineup includes many talented established and on the rise artists and bands, however, we would like to present the top 12 artists/bands to watch.
