Welcome to Part 1 of our 2011 CMJ picks. We teamed with My Social List (The Most Blogged About Shows this Week) to give you the rundown of some of the best shows of the fest. First off, a quick tip: This year CMJ show-only badges are $150; in years past (unless you were a student), trying to get an all-access pass could cost you three times that much. Meanwhile, we’ll try to help you save a few bucks by recommending primarily cheap and free shows.
This list includes official CMJ shows & unofficial shows alike. We tried to throw in some counter-programming so that those who don’t partake in music (losers!) or those sick of it can still be entertained.
