Just under one thousand revelers celebrated CMJ Music Marathon’s opening night with the NZ@CMJ Showcase presented by 42BELOW Vodka. A long line formed outside of SoHo’s Red Bull Space to catch up-and-coming New Zealand rock bands Die! Die! Die!, Surf City, Motocade, Kingston and Bang Bang Eche, along with hip hop acts David Dallas, Kidz In Space and Smashproof. The NZ@CMJ Showcase was organized through the collaborative efforts of New Zealand music promotion agencies NZ On Air and the NZ Music Commission and New York’s Giant Step.
It is that time of year again and CMJ is back in New York City starting tomorrow. This year, the Red Bull Music Space will host a special New Zealand showcase on October 20th, presented by 42BELOW. Free food and complimentary 42BELOW Vodka cocktails, Wild Rock wine and beer will all be served, with performances by NZ artists ranging from hip hop to power pop.
