Initial CMJ Lineup Announced

Today CMJ reports the initial line up of their CMJ Marathon. Pretty big names, which leaves me with the double feeling of: "Ooh I get to maybe see Spoon" vs. "Does Spoon really need to be promoted by CMJ as an up-and-coming band"?

If you look at CMJ as a music festival I'd say the list below is pretty awesome. If you see it as a way to discover tons of the best new music you haven't heard yet, then this list of bands is already better than the star-studded one from last year.
