"Veronica Falls was worth the wait and sauna-like conditions at Cake Shop. PopFest Day 1 ended very strong." - Tim

Veronica Falls @ Cake Shop on 5/20
Veronica Falls

"{Then there's Veronica Falls play the 5/20 show at Cake Shop. Maybe you saw them this past weekend when they played Glasslands on Saturday and Bruar Falls on Sunday. Their Glasslands performance was great, and they were surprisingly rockin', given the gentle nature of some of their recordings. Singer/guitarist James Hoare is a student of the David Gedge school of manic strumming, especially on their "Found Love in a Graveyard" single that becomes almost like an extended VU jam onstage."

The 2010 edition of NYC PopFest concludes today, Sunday (5/23), at Littlefield in Brooklyn. It all started Thursday night, May 20th, at Cake Shop in Manhattan. A bunch of pictures and videos from that show, below....

I think I luv this band. Sounds like Psycho Candy with Micki from Lush singing.

Any coverage from the other Popfest performances?

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
