Official apparel sponsor of CMJ Music Marathon to host night at Bowery Ballroom on October 18. Champion Athleticwear announces The Long Winters will headline its Champion Showcase at this year's CMJ Music Marathon. As Champion was born on a college campus, a partnership with CMJ Music Marathon is a perfect fit.
The Champion Showcase will rock New York's legendary Bowery Ballroom on Friday, October 18 beginning at 7:30 p.m. This year marks the ten year anniversary of The Long Winters' "When I Pretend to Fall," which they will be performing in its entirety. It will also be the first NYC show by the full band in since 2004.
Rising artists Eleanor Friedberger, Reuben and the Dark, Kan Wakan, Promised Land Sound, and Okta Logue will play in support.
Being a go-to source for authentic apparel for more than 90 years and the official apparel sponsor of CMJ, Champion has created the exclusive CMJ Music Marathon festival tee. The first 50 attendees at the Showcase will receive the custom designed event T-shirt for free. Also, the first five attendees to retweet a showcase photo posted on Champion's Twitter handle (@ChampionUSA) that night will walk away with an event T-shirt.
Those unable to attend the event in person will be able to access a live-stream featuring select performances at CMJ.com/Champion-Live. The show will be broadcast live from the Bowery Ballroom by Radionomy.com.
