nycpopfest

Bringing the jubbly bubbly world of indie music to the forefront on an annual basis, the annual NYC POPFEST has shed light on notable names like The Drums, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, as well as international tastemakers The Radio Dept. and The Orchids.  2010 marks the festival’s fourth year, and indie heads should gear up for another knock-out lineup featuring Pants Yell!, The Embassy, Tender Trap and an old favorite [and Factory Records alum, yeah, Factory Records!] Glasgow’s The Wake -who will close down the festival at Brooklyn’s Bell House on Saturday 5/22.  This year is not to be missed!
