CMJ Music Marathon also wrapped up this weekend. It is the pop music event of the fall season in New York City. The College Music Journal established the showcase for up-and-coming bands in 1980.
One trio that played CMJ is considered very up-and-coming.
In fact, the group Revolver landed on an MTV list of top ten buzz-bands of the five-day festival.
The most surprising thing about that is that Revolver is from France, a country still not often associated with good pop music exports.
