Justice @ SXSW Playboy Party, 2008 (more by Ryan Muir)

Southern Comfort has announced Altamont Fairgrounds near Albany, NY will be the new venue for the SoCo Music Experience on Saturday, September 13. The festival will feature Justice, MGMT, Lotus, The Whigs and Heartless Bastards. Doors open at 2:00 p.m.

This is the last of five markets for the SoCo Music Experience festival with each event showcasing five national performers with five top local acts on two stages all for no charge. Altamont Fairgrounds will be transformed into the complete festival experience - food and beverage vendors, a designated driver program, poster and t-shirt shop, the local record shop, merch tent, cornhole games, photobooths and the SoCo & Lime Dome, among other areas. The festival is open to people 21 and over and valid ID is required.

That free show is this Saturday in Albany. From there Justice fly to Denver to play ("live") at the Monolith Festival followed by Street Scene in San Diego followed by Treasure Island in San Francisco.. They then return to the U.S. in October to DJ some more. That includes a gig at Webster Hall one day before Halloween. Tickets are now on sale. All dates below...

cornhole games?

Cornhole is fun but I know it as Baggo. Just a barbeque game, rules like horseshoes but you throw bean bags onto a board with a hole in the middle.

Doors don't open til 11 so you can theoretically catch the Last Shadow Puppets, and then make it over to Webster Hall and dance your ass off...I face the same dilemma

Danger is at Webster Hall on Halloween, but it hasn't been on Webster's site or priced OR promoted (only on his myspacw)...maybe there's a surprise here?

I heard their DJ set is actually better than their live show. Can someone confirm?
By the way BV, how come you haven't posted about the CAfe Tacvba Halloween show?

DJ set is in no way as good as their live show, which is in fact a DJ. They just use different mixers and beat mixers.
