Popfest! New England is back this year … and after only going to one day of the New York City Popfest and missing Athens Popfest completely (even though I was supposed to go … ugh), I’m looking forward to heading up to Northampton and taking in two days and four shows of wonderful pop music. The dates are Saturday, November 13 and Sunday, November 14.
Popfest! New England is organized by Skipping Stones Records and they’ve put together a great line-up this year … headlined by 14 Iced Bears. An added bonus is that two February Records bands will be playing the festival as well. Northampton-natives Bourgeois Heroes will play at 9 p.m. Saturday. New York’s Onward Chariots (who also played Indietracks earlier this year) will play at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday.
I’m also pretty excited to see some other bands that we’ve booked for shows in the past on the bill, including Panda Riot (Chicago), Strega (NYC), The Hush Now (Boston) and The Smittens (Burlington), who are festival staples.
