The official LouFest after party, to be held on Saturday, August 27th at the Gramophone, will feature DJ sets from the Roots' Questlove and members of Deerhunter. Advance tickets are $17 and on sale now. St. Louis' DJ Needles and 18andCounting will open the party -- doors open at 9 p.m.
Questlove, in particular, needs no introduction -- as one of the most respected people in modern music, he lends an unparalleled depth of knowledge and enthusiasm to his DJ sets. Deerhunter's Bradford Cox is as compelling a figure in his own right, albiet to a somewhat smaller audience. Regardless, this will be incredible.
Both the Roots and Deerhunter will play proper sets at LouFest itself earlier on Saturday, alongside the Hold Steady, Surfer Blood and more. Sunday's headliners include TV on the Radio, Cat Power, !!! and Das Racist.
