The CMJ Music & Movie Marathon in New York can feel like exactly that - a gruelling, traipse through Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn in search of the best shows from emerging artists.

To make your life a little easier, we've already put together our guide to the best music publishing panels, and now it's time to turn our attention to the fun stuff.

There's a bunch of awesome music showcases to check out, including a couple of Songtrust clients in the mix: Charlene Kaye (pictured above) and My Pet Dragon. Good luck out there!
