The best part of CMJ isn’t the festival itself, but all the free stuff that goes around it. Much like SXSW, the free gigs are what bring in the noise, and often times, the most interesting names. Some of these are official, some not — but you can bet that all of them will be awesome. Word to the wise — get to the door early on all of these shows, cause you aren’t the only one in town itching to take advantage of some badass free music.
