With the official CMJ schedule posted, here are another batch of updates. There are frequently different times listed between the websites of CMJ, the club and the performer. I’ve gone with the CMJ times whenever possible as they seem to be the earliest. Most CMJ sets are short, in some cases, as short as 20 minutes. When in doubt, check with the club before you leave. I’d like this to be the last CMJ update, but there may be some more.
October is a busy month from what schedules have already been posted. CMJ comes around in the later part of the month and many, but not all CMJ shows have been trickling out in the past few days. There’s going to be some more to come, so check back here to see what’s going to be happening.

You have musical choices almost every day this week, and I’ve listed 13 worthwhile shows below for your consideration. But you can’t see every one of these shows and too many good ones conflict. So get out your calendar and figure out what you are going to do in this much too bountiful week.
These seven bands make up my final recommendations for the last day of the CMJ 2010 Music Marathon.
