Sea Lions
Sea Lions

As Bill wrote in our NYC Popfest 2011 preview, "Another repeat are Oxnard California's Sea Lions who were one of my favorites last year and who I'm pretty sure will have a record out on Slumberland too."

Sea Lions are playing Popfest, but they also have two other NYC shows coming up (that I could find) four other NYC shows coming up. On May 19th they play the sold out NYC Popfest show at Cake Shop with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Gold-Bears (who play and more. Two days later you can catch them TWICE. They play Saturday night shows at both Glasslands and Death By Audio in Brooklyn on a bill with other Popfest bands, and then the next afternoon, Sunday, 5/22. you can find them at a party in Bushwick. On May 24th they play Brooklyn Fireproof. On May 28th they are back in their home-state for an appearance on a Slumberland showcase at San Francisco Popfest. More details on all those dates, below.

Meanwhile for a taste of NYC Popfest before it even starts, Gold-Bears (who play Cake Shop with Sea Lions) are here and play Brooklyn Fireproof tonight (5/17) with The Hairs (who play Death By Audio with Sea Lions).

The Hairs (the new group from Kevin of Knight School fame) also play Rock Shop Sunday, Cake Shop Monday, and South Street Seaport in July. All dates below...
