Philadelphia’s annual ‘Jam on the River’ has announced its 2008 lineup. Once again, local electronic rockers, the Disco Biscuits, will return for their 6th year to headline the two-day mini-festival. This year, they’ll be balanced out by the Flaming Lips. The event will take place on May 24-25 at Penn’s Landing, and includes the following:

Saturday, May 24th:
The Flaming Lips
Josh Ritter

Sunday, May 25th:
The Disco Biscuits
Avett Brothers
Tom Hamilton & American Babies

Although I feel like last year’s lineup was a bit more intriguing than this one, JOTR always does a good job mixing acts from around the country with plenty of local Philly talent (Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Tom Hamilton, etc…).

Last year’s events also included a few late night shows at the Electric Factory to continue the party Philly-style. No word yet of any similar late-night festivities, but those might be on their way with the official launch of the JOTR website. Late-night shows have now been announced, and include the following:

May 23 2008 – The New Deal @ The Fillmore @ The TLA
May 24 2008 – The Disco Biscuits @ The Electric Factory
May 25 2008 – Dark Star Orchestra @ The Electric Factory
May 25 2008 – Conspirator / RJD2 @ The Fillmore @ The TLA
