Phoenix-based melodic rock group Runaway Diamonds has been asked to perform at the CMJ Music Marathon next month in New York. We've long been fans of the band's quirky indie rock (we wrote a music feature about 'em earlier this year), and are glad to have them representing the PHX in NYC.
As part of the CMJ fest, Runaway Diamonds will perform on Tuesday, October 16 at the Trash Bar in Brooklyn. The band also has a track on the free CD that comes with this month's issue of CMJ New Music Monthly.
In the meantime, check out Runaway Diamonds' video for "Enormous."
