Saul Williams, The Dismemberment Plan, F**k Buttons, Speedy Ortiz and Savages are among the first wave of artists set to perform during the 2013 CMJ Music Marathon.

Among the highlights include Menomena, The Long Winters, and Kevin Drew, as well as Lee Fields & The Expressions, Nick Waterhouse, The Griswolds, Helio Sequence, Glasser, Empress Of and HAERTS.
Over 100 other bands have also been unveiled for this year’s New York festivities, which will take place across Manhattan and Brooklyn from 15 to 19 October.
