The best thing about Popfest is after the sensitive concert attendees are finished crying into their tissues to the lovelorn twee they then have a wank into said tissues.

Who the hell are any of these bands?

Posted by The Real Real Yup. PERIOD | May 2, 2011 3:59 PM

if you're psyched for this, you are a fauxhemian

Sounds like International Pop Overthrow without any big bands. They could have at least tried to find one headliner each night.

The ticket price is too much considering these bands are no names.

As in Clyde who used to run Twenty Seven Records? If so, that makes sense.

a little birdie told me that the pains of being pure at heart are playing at the cakeshop on the 19th

A little birdie told me that saying that "a little birdie told me..." something sounds really gay.

I think this fest has a pretty good track record of booking bands "no one knows" that have gone on to become more well known i.e. The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, The Drums, Radio Dept., Dent May, Love Is All. If you like this kind of music investigate the bands if not why bother commenting?
