Welcome to Part 2 of our 2011 CMJ picks. We teamed up with My Social List (of The Most Blogged About Shows of the Week) to give you the rundown of some of the best music of the fest. Last time we covered the first two days of CMJ; today we finish up with Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Hopefully you already have your CMJ pass — or maybe you’ve been occupying Wall Street and want to enjoy some free music and booze. Regardless, we hope to have you covered.
