As always, the event will be hosted by the Beat*Shot Collective, namely Lo-Fi Lobo, Oddy Gato and Trumaster. Headliners include Kalae Nouveau (pictured), J-Live, Mirk, Shyste, Sev Statik and Triune, but the list goes on and on: PJ Katz, Moses Rockwell, Deejay Tone, Nate da Great, Goldtooth, DJ White Lotus, DJ Playground, Elements of Hip-Hop, El Sphinx, the Ameros. The jam starts at noon, and be sure to get there early. Admission goes up for the headlining sets. (July 6, noon, $10-$15, 388 Broadway, Albany, 465-0444)
