Thursday night’s show by Justice served as the kickoff for this year’s Moogfest. However, Justice wasn’t the only event to get the weekend-long dance party started. Check out the tweets, photos and more from folks on the ground at Justice, Minimoogfest and so much more. (featured photo by @NickLeTellier on Instagram)
In advance of their Moogfest set (tonight at Diana Wortham Theatre, 11:30 p.m.) local instrumental rock duo Ahleuchatistas spoke to Xpress about their 10 year anniversary, their new album, and how their sounds reflects their home town. Click through for the video by Courtney Chappell.
There’s a lot happening this weekend (“weekend” being loosely defined here as the stretch of days between Thursday and Sunday). Much of it is Moogfest-related, but there are also plenty of peripheral activities that are free/cheap and/or off the beaten Moogfest path for festival attendees and festival shunners alike. Day parties (Decent Lovers, pictured, play Apothecary), a Bob Moog-inspired outdoor installation, two athletic events and even an afterparty are on the list. We’ll add more events as we know about them, so check back!

This afternoon Moogfest organizers announced more big names for the October festival. The five additions include local duo Ahleuchatistas (a mighty choice), pictured here.
