Local artists play CMJ Music Marathon in New York

The Jacob Jeffries Band, Beach Day and Millionyoung have made it to one of the biggest annual music events this year: New York city's CMJ Music Marathon.

For five days, clubs in Brooklyn and Manhattan are taken over by musicians from across the country, while industry professionals attend sessions on how to succeed in the music business. The festival was started as a conference of sorts, for bookers to find new artists for the college demographic.

Tuesday, Oct. 16 is the first day of this year's Music Marathon, but our locals won't play a show until this weekend. Check out the schedule at CMJ.com.
