Word's been trickling out the slightest bit, so I thought I'd start the thread for this.
The first Powerpop festival in NYC, maybe the first in the US (can't be sure.)
The dates are either 11/30, 12/1 and 12/2 (Thurs/Fri/Sat) or 12/1, 12/2 and 12/3 (Fri/Sat/Sun).
Mini-record shows during the day, bands at night, with some afterparties at various locations. The shows will be at Southpaw in Brooklyn, most of you might be familiar with the locale for all the Dot Dash festivals.
While I haven't confirmed all the headliners/main support, these ones have confirmed:
NOTE: I'm working on 2 other possible headliners, either would be a big deal for powerpop fans, if you're in the know, please don't say anything until I'm 100% sure on them.
The Busy Signals
The Nice Boys
Tina and the Total Babes
Beat, Beat, Beat
Gentleman Jesse and His Men
And for all you powerpop-hating Goners, I'll paraphrase a favorite Stiff button "It's OK to like Nick Lowe."
Advanced tickets and 3-day passes will be available soon. If you want to be informed when they are, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
