The CMJ Music Marathon is coming up; tune into this week’s Metropolitan Ave. as DJ Lady DM gives the scoop on the NYC festival. Emily White of Readymade Records and Whitesmith Entertainment joins the program to give her networking tips for CMJ. Find out how Emily got involved in the music business after working for The Dresden Dolls, and how she built her own management company in a few short weeks. Later, Bushwick-by-New Zealand band Streets of Laredo join the program and play some of their songs live in-studio. Hear why Streets of Laredo keep it “all in the family”, and how they have learned to adjust from life in New Zealand. Thanks to our sponsor, Brooklyn Slate.

“A lot of people in the city rag on CMJ, but CMJ is a very powerful brand internationally.” [5:35]
