Spread out across venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn, this year’s CMJ Music Marathon provided a glimpse at some of the year’s best emerging artists in addition to a healthy lineup of veteran performers. With five days of showcases and concerts to attend, the festival offered something for everyone, with bands representing a variety of genres.
Mysterious hip-hop artist (MF) Doom (aka Daniel Dumile) is to tour the UK, Ireland, mainland Europe, and the majority of Scandinavia starting in October of 2010.
The idiosyncratic MC is a favorite of many, as are his collaborations as Danger Doom (with Danger Mouse) and Madvillain (with Madlib).
Known for sending impersonators to wear his mask and lip-sync on tour, Doom is as much a character as a performer, so what happens on his newest tour is anyone’s guess. He’ll be touring in support of Expektoration, a live album planned for release on September 14, 2010 on Gold Dust Media.
