When the CMJ Music Marathon arrives in New York City this month and rockers of every stripe begin unpacking their guitars, synths and snare drums, you can bet the city will look a little cooler than usual. For five days and nights (Oct. 15–19), this industry showcase will see more than 1,400 emerging pop acts from around the world playing at more than 80 music venues across Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. If you plan to attend, you’ll need more than just a laminate; you’ll want to make sure you have the right clothes and accessories, too.
