The CMJ 2014 Music Marathon will land in The Big Apple on October 21st and run until the 25th and with it shall come more musical events than you can easily count on five pairs of hands. Yes it is that involved. Among the numerous highlights that happen over these few days are the special showcases that are sometimes only open to the CMJ Badge holders while others let the general public in with the purchase of a ticket. One of the events that PiercingMetal.com has enjoyed since its inception is the Skateboard Marketing Showcase that is spearheaded by the company’s founder Munsey Ricci. I’ve embedded the official press copy below the poster so do please read on.
