NYC Popfest 2008!!!


The best four days you'll have this year!

NYC POPFEST 2008 is finally kicking into high gear! And I'm so excited! I've been waiting for what has felt like forever for some "official" Popfest updates and I've finally got some!!! A partial list of bands has finally been confirmed this past week, and here they are!

The Besties (NYC)
The Cannanes (Australia)
Cats on Fire (Finland)
Dent May & His Ukelele (MO)
Friday Bridge (Sweden)
From Bubblegum To Sky (NYC)
The Hermit Crabs (UK)
Love Is All (Sweden)
Mahogany (NYC)
My Teenage Stride (NYC)
Oh! Custer (Sweden)
One Happy Island (MA)
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (NYC)
Pants Yell! (MA)
Tullycraft (WA)

Now, I don't know about you, but good god that is one hell of a lineup so far! I have to say, at the moment, I'm probably the most excited for Cats On Fire and The FUCKING Cannanes!!! And of course, The Pobpahs will be awesome, as will Pants Yell!, and as will everyone else... and LOVE IS ALL... Love Is All, wow...

I know I didn't quite succeed last year, but this year I think I'm going to actually try to do a post on each band, leading up to the Popfest! And I'll actually be there this year! I can't wait to meet everyone I've yet to meet, and dance forever with them. I'll keep you updated on band updates and etc, although you can also do that yourself by being friends with the NYC Popfest on MySpace! There's also word of some Popfest warm-ups coming up in April, so keep your eyes peeled for updates, updates, updates!!!

xoxo

P.S. You should head over to Alex's wonderful, wonderful blog to find her also posing with her Popbpahs/Pgrams split 7" (Everyone should be doing this, by the way!!!). I don't know if I've linked to her before actually, until now, but her blog is really really great and awesome and is one of the few that I still read constantly these days... so you should be reading it too!!!

I can't believe comet gain is playing too. maybe that's not official, but perhaps if it gets mentioned enough, it will really happen.

Having seen both The Cannanes and Tullycraft live - trust me the band to be most excited about is Tullycraft. How long has it been since they’ve played NYC?

Matt,
I liked your mix very much except for that Horowitz song. I Need A Blanket? That’s about right! I Need A Blanket to cover my head from such a trite band. Pop Kids of the World Unite? These kids are trying waaay too hard… and not succeeding. Ick!!!

sorry if it turns out not to be...

Lord, have mercy. I leave town for a few days and come back to - FINALLY! - an official announcement of some of the Popfest bands. NYC Popfest takes the cake in attracting the most amazing and fabulous indie pop bands from around the world. Cats on Fire and the Orchids!!!! Oh my god, I've just died and gone to heaven.

The only indie pop girl in Chicago will be there. WILL YOU? xoxo

Ack. I don't like the way my last reply sounded. I welcome the citizens of Chicago (and the world!) to come flail along with me to the most fabulous indie pop around today! Hurrah.
