Some Bands I Would Love To See Breakthrough After Playing CMJ 2009

You don't have to be at CMJ to be in the know about the upcoming buzzworthy bands. Sure CMJ is a pretty epic display of developing to antique artists showcasing themselves to the music industry and like-type folks in New York City for about 5 straight days of non-stop back-to-back shows. It is undeniably a really fun time, a drunken time, a time for networking over a cheers and a time to collect as many business cards as you can to impress your co-workers.

Anyway, I am sad to say that this year I am not at CMJ, but that certainly did not stop my mailbox from overflowing the last few weeks with the need-to-knows about CMJ parties, first time shows and baby bands about to burst.

So here it goes, in no particular order, a list that is not only bands I wish I was seeing live this week at CMJ, but bands that I think you (whoever you are) outta check out. Just google these bands, a myspace page or a hypem free mp3 is bound to show up. Bands ...

Buzznet caught up with Leighton Meester in honor of the release of her new danceable single 'Somebody To Love', a collab with singer/songwriter Robin Thicke. The Gossip Girl's previous foray into music, you probably remember, was guest vocals for Cobra Starship's radio hit 'Good Girls Go Bad'. Teaming up was fun, but the TV actress has been in and out of the studio, writing and recording her own stuff. Find out what Leighton has to say about boys and love, Behind Closed Doors. It's no suprise that she believes in "undeniable chemistry"--how else would she nail the part of Queen B and Chuck Bass' lover on the CW's best show? XOXO, listen to what Leighton has to say ...
