If you’ve ever been to a festival like South By Southwest, you’re familiar with the assorted satellite events (both official and unofficial). In line with that concept, Emerald Lounge is hosting a local showcase during Moogfest, with a full roster of bands Friday and Saturday nights. The showcase is free to Moogfest pass holders and $10 per day for the general public. Moogfest day-pass holders get in free on the day of their ticket. Buy Friday advance tickets at avl.mx/m7 and Saturday advance tickets at avl.mx/m8.
