September 12, 2008, ALBANY, NY - Southern Comfort learned late Friday that MGMT drummer Will Berman injured his foot this week and the band has cancelled their performance at Saturday's SoCo Music Experience at Altamont Fairgrounds near Albany, NY. Brooklyn popsters Matt and Kim have been confirmed as replacements.

The festival main stage will feature Justice, Lotus, The Whigs and Heartless Bastards, while the Metroland EQXposure Stage will feature The Erotics, Ska Dee, Disasters of Hollywood, Severe Severe and The Crayons - all for no charge. Doors open at 2:00 p.m. The festival is open to people 21 and over and valid ID is required.

Justice rocked. Matt & Kim and Lotus were also really good. Thanks for the info on the Albany-area show, BV - you have readers up here too.

I was disappointed that MGMT canceled, but my friends and I went early, and happened to catch Severe Severe's set, and they are AWESOME! Anyone who is into good post-punk should check them out ASAP!
