Summerfest has progressed into a legit festival over the last few years, major headliners and the price is right. I’m anxious to see the production and how it compares to major festivals. Tickets are still available and they are only $45 for two day pass. Beirut who’s sold out show at ACL Live next week will be there in addition to Weezer, Ween, Chromeo, Bun B, and Cut Copy. Cut Copy is also playing a DJ set Sunday night at Fitzgeralds but if you have to get back to Austin skip it as their DJ set a while back at Malverde wasn’t that great.

UPDATE- GO TO HOMEPAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SHOW IS AT SPEAKEASY
Well Shit in the middle of writing this I went to the Bacardi website and it looks like MSTRKRFT and Santigold are not going to be at this show FUCK!!!!!!! but anyways check out my vids from SXSW and realize ONLY Matt and Kim, Major Lazer, and A-Trak have been announced for the Austin show. Which is still great I love Matt and Kim. Looks like show will be at the Austin Music Hall (Pollstar) or maybe just a Matt and Kim Spoon aftershow at Stubbs (Their Myspace).
(I just came across this today look who’s coming to the July 10th. If you were lucky enough to be at MSTRKFRFT’s SXSW showcase outside at Radio Room or had the balls to jump the fence and then later break it down. It was my favorite of SX check out my video of the Mounties clearing the alley next to the entrance. Also Matt and Kim’s showcase was probably my number 2 of SX. Come on Santogold is on this bill, now I don’t feel bad about skipping her Stubb’s show for Camera Oscura at Antone’s.)
So now I must choose Santogold or Camera Obscura…..
