Line 6 + NYC = CMJ 2008!

The excitement is palpable. Line 6 is proudly co-sponsoring a few choice events at the 28th-annual CMJ Music Marathon.

This October 21-25, 100,000 music fans, artists, filmmakers, and industry pros from around the globe will descend upon New York City with their hopes of either becoming the next big thing or finding the next big thing. Line 6 will be on-hand to make sure many of them sound good.

Our co-sponsored events include Serious Business Records’ label showcase (October 21 at Pianos) and Planetary Group’s Skewer party (October 25 at Pianos). We will be supplying each event with Spider Valve™ and LowDown® amps, providing plenty of giveaways and trying our hardest to deliver up-to-the-minute reports of the festivities.

Serious Business Records, a division of Serious Business Music, expanded monstrously from a labor of love into one of New York City’s most robust indie labels. Performing at the showcase will be the Unsacred Hearts, Higgins, the Two Man Gentleman Band, Rocketship Park, Benji Cossa and other great bands. Serious Business label head Travis Harrison certainly has golden ears.

Anybody who remembers Planetary Group’s Skewer BBQ at South-by-Southwest earlier this year knows that these guys can throw a party. On two stages, these aces of artist development will be hosting an event featuring performances by Koufax, Passion Pit, Blackmarket, Michael Zapruder and many others.
