Polyphonic Spree...
Polyphonic Spree

Southern Comfort will host a series of free shows beginning this August. The tour's two main headliners will be Ghostland Observatory and the Polyphonic Spree. DJ Lord of Public Enemy is set to open. The tour will bring the Polyphonic Spree to NYC's Webster Hall on October 1st.

What's the catch? You'll have to sign up for Soco's text messaging list to receive a ticket code.

SoCo is also involved in a new video series on called "Uncovered." That features musicians performing acoustic covers of their favorite artists -- the first edition, up now, is Dinosaur Jr. playing The Cure's "Just Like Heaven." Upcoming acts include Black Lips, A Camp, The Dears, Patterson Hood and Phosphorescent (who just announced a Brooklyn show). A partial list of who's playing what, with the SoCo tour's schedule and all upcoming Ghostland Observatory dates, below...

Isn't drinking against Polyphonic Spree's weird religion?

"Ghostland = seriously the gayest band ever."

"gay" is supposed to be some kind of insult here?

Boy your really love promoting NY music. It is as if you don't have an open mind to better music just because it is from outside of NY. I ought to send you a fart in the mail.

That was some pretty funny banter from DJr. before the video, but just how much are they getting paid to schill for porn and alchohol? That is some sadass shit right there.
