CMJ 2011

Contest: Win a five-day pass to CMJ 2011

From October 18 – 22, New York City’s finest venues, nightclubs, and theaters will be taken over by musicians, music-industry professionals, college-radio nerds, filmmakers, and critics. Yes, it’s back: the CMJ Music Marathon and Film Festival.

Notable bands scheduled to perform include: Trash Talk, Parts & Labor, Davila 666, A Place to Bury Strangers, the Doomtree crew, Talkdemonic, Mexicans with Guns, and Kylesa. Seeing so many concerts, screenings, and panels normally comes at a pretty steep price, but we’ve teamed up with CMJ to give away two five-day passes. Total retail value of one pass alone is $495 and will give its bearer access to any event, provided that it’s not sold out or at capacity.

To enter to win, fill out the form below by the end of Thursday, October 13. By entering your information, you’ll also be signed up to receive ALARM’s weekly E-mail newsletter, The ALARMIST.

Contest: Tickets to Miike Snow DJ set for Lollapalooza after-party

Assuming that you still have enough left in your tank after a weekend full of hot Lollapalooza action, you can get your groove on Sunday night at the official after-party at The Mid. We’re giving away four pairs of tickets to what promises to be a dance-party extravaganza.

The lineup comprises a worldly bunch. Swedes Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg of Miike Snow will be playing a headlining DJ set, with support from Australian house duo Bag Raiders, UK-based DJ Jackmaster, California-based The M Machine, and Chicago’s own DJ Trentino.
