The College Music Journal (CMJ) kicked off their annual Music Marathon and Film Festival last night. For the 28th year in a row, indie artists from April Smith to Zimbabwe Legit have invaded the big apple, taking over the city's hottest music venues.
Much like the Latin Alternative Music Conference, the CMJ Music Marathon and Film Festival brings together fans, artists, filmmakers, and industry pros the world over through panels, events, and, of course, performances.
Though the artists span a variety of genres, Latin Alternative acts are not in short supply. Zigmat, Monareta, Cuchillo, Maniqui Lazer, Los Fancy Free, and Todosantos are just some of the artists bringing the LA flavor to this year's marathon.
