I am stupidly excited about the Gerbils! We can only make it for Friday and Saturday, so Hug Abuse will be our first band this year. Yeah!

looks like a great line-up; I never thought I'd get to see the olivia tremor control.
the trouble with personalities, they're too wrapped up in style
it's too personal; they're in love with their own guile

I really can't stop looking at this part of the lineup and thinking it's a dream:

10:30 the Gerbils
11:30 Masters of the Hemisphere
12:30 Olivia Tremor Control

Those are three bands I thought I'd maybe never get to see again! I can't believe I'm going to see them play IN A ROW.

A quick question on tickets: Will the shows at the Caledonia Lounge be closed off to anyone without a wristband? If not, how much will it cost to get in?

This will take place in a week!

I'm very excited as I've never been to Athens before and have high expectations. Also because Bunnygrunt, Sourpatch, Masters of the Hemisphere, The Gerbils, Afternoon Naps and The Dead Milkmen will be woderful.

That was awesome!
Favourite things in no particular order MAN OR ASTROMAN (though I did get a bit distressed when they set the theremin on fire), going horse on friday from singing along to all the bands, I never thought I'd ever see The Gerbils, and all of the bands that night were awesome! Afternoon Naps and Fishboy were ace and great to see Sweater Girls on the big stage, and see Grape Soda again.

Other things of comment, James Husbands ACE Roxy Music cover and "Do the Dingbat", the abundance of PBR tall boys, the Red Pony Clock special booze parking lot party, seeing Monnone have Margarita's for breakfast and then him rocking the Caledonian, and of course hanging out with all the awesome people there and being back in Athens.

Squirrelboutique, where were you?

Aw, real life stuff got in the way.

It's likely all for the best because I had a terrible cold all week, and after a couple days of traveling around Florida for work and conference presenting, I was ready to collapse by Friday night. I still don't feel quite right.

I'm glad it was another awesome PopFest! I'm consoling myself by thinking about the Holiday Surprise show.

Fishboy! <3
