    Default Southern Comfort Presents: UNDERcover - Ghostland, Polyphonic, Hold Steady,

    Some bands you’ve probably heard of hit the road to pay tribute to some other bands you’ve probably heard of
    By Alex Young on July 21st, 2009


    Beginning August 20th, Southern Comfort will round up three of music’s biggest acts, Ghostland Observatory, The Polyphonic Spree and The Hold Steady, for something called Southern Comfort Presents: underCOVER. Basically, the 10-date shindig will give “an up close and personal look” into the musical influences of the three acts, with each band “paying tribute to the artists and covering the very songs that helped forge the sounds you hear today.”

    A schedule of who is playing when and where can be found below. To get in, you’ll have to text the name of the market (i.e. “JERSEY SHORE”) to #68405. From there, it’s anyone’s guess…

    Southern Comfort Presents: underCOVER 2009 Tour Dates:
    08/20 - San Diego, CA @ Birch North Park Theatre *&
    08/27 - Asbury Park, NJ @ The Stone Pony ^&
    09/10 - Toronto, ON @ Sound Academy *&
    09/17 - Boston, MA @ Paradise Rock Club ^&
    09/24 - Dallas, TX @ Palladium Ballroom ^&
    10/01 - New York, NY @ Webster Hall ^&
    10/08 - Madison, WI @ Barrymore Theatre *&
    10/15 - St. Louis, MO @ The Pageant *&
    10/22 - Seattle, WA @ Crocodile Cafe #&
    10/29 - Orlando, FL @ Hard Rock Live *&

    * = w/ Ghostland Observatory
    ^ = w/ Polyphonic Spree
    # = w/ The Hold Steady
    & = w/ DJ Lord

    very cool ghostland puts on a fun show. So if i understand this correctly they'll be doing a lot of covers? is that the theme? if so that should be a lot of fun.

    Right? Nobody is that lucky!

    And yes, seems like they will be doing covers. Hmmm so will this show not be a traditional GO show with lasers and all?

    Who is in for the SD show? I got my ticket code and it is leading me to believe that they will be covering Prince.

    I'm getting excited. I looked up the venue and I think this has the potential to be really fucking good, especially for $5 donation.

    Does anyone have any idea how much of a Ghostland show this will be? Should I expect lasers and really good sound? I guess I'm having trouble comprehending what $5 gets me. hah

    shit, i wonder if they can fit all their cool laaaserz on that little stage. ghostland without lasers is kind of worthless.

    yeah for some reason Ghostland really requires lasers for a great show. they played in the daytime at vegoose and it just wasnt the same.

    yeah i just realized how poor i am as well. I just took all my glass and plastic to a recycling plant and got 19 bucks!

    Im down to just hit up a 7-11 and drink tall cans in the parking lot.

    I'm down to drink something in the parking lot. I called and was informed there is parking on North Park Way and 29th behind the Union Bank. I'm gonna grab dinner with my buddy after work then head over. I got some green but I'm still kinda sick and rather just have a couple drinks.

    Josh, I didn't know you were going! I'm gonna PM you my # so text me if you get there early. Doors open at 7 and that will probably be the time I get there since I'm gonna eat first. Since it's a SoCo thing, will they have alcohol there?

    Daftmonkey - sending you my # too even though we haven't met. Whatever, it's fucking Ghostland!!! And yes, lasers will rule but Vegoose was still a fun time - there's gotta be SOME type of lighting considering it's indoors, right?

    Eh, I got my iphone so I will just check the board later and see what's going on for meetups.

    i just called too. doors at 7, opener at 8, then ghostland after that, but she didnt know what time that would be. its also first come first serve for seating.

    i think i'll probably watch some preseason football first, then head over around 7:30-8.

    i'll shoot you a text lillia.

    Josh - you gotta post our awesome UNDERCOVER sunglass flick. 4th time seeing Ghostland and they just bring it harder every single time!

    Good times! Ghostland killed it last night. Wasnt sure what to expect for the whole under cover thing, but it was mostly just their shit with a few covers at the end. I'll post some pics when I have time...

    Which means you've gotten booty once or less?
