CMW 2016

CMW

 

We’ve reached that time of year when everyone and their dad decides to put on a music festival, each one boasting a list of about a million live bands. Always one for a challenge, I listened to (almost) every band on the 2016 CMW roster to root out which ones are worth your time, and money. (Note: if I had to go on a wild goose chase throughout the internet just to hear one of your band’s songs, you probably didn’t make the cut). Don’t let my ear fatigue be all for naught—grab a wristband and check out some of these shows!
