CMJ - Day 1

And so it begins.

Dozens of venues across the city (well, Manhattan and Brooklyn) will be opening their stages to CMJ starting tonight.

The organizers have a handy schedule that you can peruse by venue and date. Here are also our picks again for what's going on tonight in Brooklyn:

Also that day at the Williamsburg venue are Brooklyn twee rockers Tiny Masters of Today. At 7 p.m. Tickets $10 in advance $12 DOS.

Over at the Charleston (174 Bedford Ave.) in Williamsburg, New Jersey quartet Carlon, fresh off their debut album "Johari Window," executive produced by Dispatch's Pete Francis, will play a CMJ showcase with NYCSmoke, Gold Streets and Hammer No More The Fingers. Starting at 8 p.m.
