Planning on being on the East Coast in early November or looking for a reason to pack your bags and head there? The schedule for the New England Popfest has been announced and it's four-packed bills of bands from up and down the East Coast sprinkled with a couple British, Swedish and Nordic cuties.
Most notable to our imaginary eyes are Brown Recluse Sings, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Pants Yell!

Need to be reminded of the sweetness of Brown Recluse Sings? Here's a video of an acoustic version of a new song that will be on their soon to be released full-length. If it's easier to just listen to stuff on MySpace, you have to hear their songs feature there.
