Woodstock 50 organizers are now begging for a venue.

With just 36 days to go before the gates are supposed to open, Michael Lang and his merry band are desperate to find a venue for the 50th anniversary Woodstock event.

The original venue, Watkins Glen International, kicked them out over permits and non-payment of a $150,000 deposit. The second venue, a much smaller horse racing track, denied them permits, too.

So what now? The plan appears to beg.

Good luck with that.
