I'm leaving for the Athens PopFest in 3 days and I'm cramming in as much PopFest-prep to familiarize myself with the bands I'll see while there.
This Friday is a big day for the fest. Bands performing on this day include Poison Control Center, Casper and the Cookies, and Tullycraft (debuting new songs from their to-be-released-in-the-Fall album).
Today I'm especially looking forward to High Water Marks from Lexington, Kentucky. They have a fetching Mangum-esque slightly muttled pop with Rentals keyboards style.
Listen to "Polar" or "Have another dream" from their MySpace page.
Wondering what else is going down on Friday?
