We told you about the 2009 NYC Popfest, which happens May 14 - 17 -- tickets are now on sale to all shows.

The weekend after that (May 21 -24) is the 2009 San Francisco Popfest, which has a pretty killer line-up of it's own, including Sweden's Pelle Carlberg, Suburban Kids with Biblical Names, and Springfactory; Denmark's Champagne Riot and Northern Portrait; the solo performance debut from Joel Gibb of Hidden Cameras, Razorcuts/Sportique singer Gregory Webster, and what may be the last-ever show by Seattle's amazing Tullycraft.

Both the NYC and SF Popfests share bands My Teenage Stride, Eax Autres, The Tartans, and The Smittens. And those New Yorkers jealous of the Swedes playing the SF Popfest, don't be too much: Pelle Carlberg plays Union Hall on May 30 (tix on sale now), and Suburban Kids with Biblical Names are also playing NYC, though dates and venues are still TBD at this point.

Pelle was one of the highlights of the first NYC Popfest in 2007 and through him was where a lot of people first heard Ida Maria, thanks to their duet "I Love You You Imbecile" which you can download at the top of this post.

Full SF Popfest schedule and videos for Pelle and SKwBN after the jump.

Tullycraft is breaking up?

Tullycraft aren't breaking up, they're just gonna stop playing live so much. From their MySpace:

If you happened to read the February 27th post on the tully blog, then you know that Tullycraft has been a band for a long time now. Each of us has had a wonderful time, but over the years it's become increasingly difficult to balance our personal lives (i.e. Chris' goat farm, Cori's adult bookstore, etc..) with our time in the band. While we’re excited to continue to write and record music together, we’ve decided to take a step back from playing live shows. If you would like to catch Tullycraft live before our self-imposed hiatus, we have two shows scheduled: April 4th at the Crocodile (in Seattle), and May 23rd at the Rickshaw Stop (in San Francisco). Thanks so much.

Last year's Popfest was a mess. People with tix couldn't get in to see Tullycraft. This year looks like SF is kickin' NYC's @ss.
