CMJ 2012

Every October the CMJ music festival takes over New York City. It is one of the world's most important showcases for discovering new music, and this year Gemma Gracewood enters the fray for Music 101. She seeks advice on how to attend the festival, checks the pulse of the Kiwi bands including Lawrence Arabia, Kody Nielson of Opossum, Matiu from Six60's Dad and manager Teresa Patterson; as well as talking to publicists and talent bookers at the NZ showcase, and meets surprising guests at the New Zealand CMJ party.
