Does this mean there's not going to be a NY Popfest this year?!
Butt.

Don't be thinking about which one you'd prefer, concentrating on thinking about making it happen that you can go to both.

Indietracks has trains. More bands that you could possibly see. In the beautiful Derbyshire countryside.

SF Popfest won't have trains, but you could go for cable car rides. And play scrabble inbetween the bands. In the USA's most beautiful city.

I'm glad I don't have to decide.

*I wonder if colin actually made that 'yow' noise out loud*

my plans for a talking walking colinsmitten doll continue apace

also my plans for winning the lottery... I've got a system, it's failproof... I'd love to go to this, a crafty little lottery win might just give me the funds I need to finance such a trip

eep!

I think we're having a picnic show one day. Hopefully we can persuade you to sing some songs then too.

of course you could persuade me! We just have to sort out some logistics with the whole burlington/leeds contingents in terms of our overall plan and then I will know what's happening!

I'm already looking forward to it - we know loads of folks in SF, too!

yow! (in my head - as I'm at work)

I've never been to California either! That would be exciting. You at least have that West Coast "friendliness" about you; I'll have to growl at people like a ferral creature for a day or so before I learn to trust their sincerity.

And $299 r/t from Boston; now THAT's what I'm talkin' 'bout.

Maybe we should have a popfest lottery. So many great fests to choose from!

awfully close to the nyc popfest timing wise but team anorak city (i.e. my girlfriend and me) will most likely be at both...mainly by coincidence, but fortunate one at that.
