Philadelphia’s annual ‘Jam on the River‘ has announced its 2007 lineup. Philly’s own Disco Biscuits will return for their 5th year to headline on Saturday, May 26th, while STS9 has the top slot on Sunday, May 27th. The band will also trade spots with STS9 for late-night shows at the Electric Factory, along with Disco Biscuits’s side project, Conspirator. The event takes place May 26-27 at Penn’s Landing in Philladelphia, and includes the following:

Pre-sale tickets will be available on Monday, April 9th through Biscotix, while general public sale begins Saturday, April 14th. Full lineup and additional info should be available at the Jam on the River website starting on Monday.

JOTR is always a great little urban music event, but this lineup is especially solid. Common sharing the stage with the Disco Biscuits is big news, especially given the band’s recent interest in hip hop. But the musical mayhem is even sweeter with all these additional late-night shows. Sounds like a dance party to me!
