Now, as many artists as I just listed, that's not even a 1/4 of who's going to be there. For the complete artist list, check out the official CMJ Artists list here.
I also wanted to give a big pat on the back to the whole East Coast Overdose team and it's community of supporters. Yesterday's post - 3 A.M. With Little Boots - was officially our 100th post. WOOT WOOT!!!
