New England Popfest 2008! November 7 - November 9

Post by alongwalkhome » Sun Feb 03, 2008 4:06 pm

No dates or bands yet and no one ever goes, but I'm posting it anyway! Maybe Northampton will get some super-special acts and surprise us all.

Sorry! Are you skipping stones william?? Ha ha! I meant no one in my very small and meaningless circle goes--the fest is a rousing success!!

When are you announcing the bands? I know it's not 'til fall, but...

Thanks and good luck!

yes, that's me!
hi there :)

oh...as far as announcing bands.
many will be coming from outside the us, so it's a little early yet to say.
all I can really tell you is that we are planning to totally out-do our past popfests this year.
thanks for your interest.

Oh, that would be excellent! They're lovely aren't they?

You guys should come! It's at that most gorgeous time of year here and Western Mass. is 10 x as pretty w/its abundance of foliage.

I would definitely like to try and get out for this. I've been promising myself an east coast trip for a while (as you know!), and summer is looking increasingly unlikely, but there's a good chance I could make it out later in the year.

It's hard to believe that a whole summer will go by and it will be cold again before another Popfest NE!!!

But the snowis melted and we're really really psyched for this year's Popfest!

Do you have any more information about it yet? I'm definitely gearing up for an East coast USA visit in the autumn!

lyns, popfest NE will be on at the exact time of year we were there last year and that part of the world is officially the best place ever (tm) in the fallautumn. do it!
marc*, i would love to come over again, but i'm probably going back to school in august so i don't think i'll be able to afford any nice holidays for a bit after that!


* in my head, this sounds like 'marse', but written down it just looks like mark-with-a-c. hmm.

Yay! As soon as those dates are confirmed, I'll try to change the title of this thread, William--though it may be beyond my technical abilities.

Yes, autumn in New England! It's so fabulous.

I can't believe that I'm looking forward to that time of year, as spring in New England has been a major bitch to us and spring seems so far away ... I am already thinking of fall and the crisp, beautiful colors ...

and please use this forum to recommend any bands to us!

I'm reviving this thread just cuz there are at least 4 confirmed anorakites (some from overseas! Ooooh...aaaah) coming to NE Popfest. I wish this could be a space to beg the organizers (Hi, Christine and William!) to contact certain bands, but I'm sure they've got it all sussed out. There's already a crappity conflict with The Mountain Goats' NY appearances, but maybe they can get Mr. Darnielle to play on the Friday?? Sorry, I shouldn't focus on the negative or get too greedy!

Anyhoo, me and Yubo and impabafree and soft revolution(?) are definitely there and we REALLY hope Lynsey and squirrelboutique will be there too. Who else is in? It's in the middle of collegiate Massachusetts foliage country. In the town where Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore live! And...erm...there's lots of colleges. And leaves; did I mention leaves?

Stay tuned for updates about bands.

Should we start a wishlist anyway? Even if it's all been decided and/or the organizers don't want to know our useless opinions?

There with little bells on! Very excited to be going to my first ever US popfest!

To be honest, looking at bands who have played, I can't think of a band likely to play which would make it not brilliant, but I would so love to see My Teenage Stride. If The Smittens play then I might just explode with genuine excitement.

What'll the weather be like? Will there still be leaves in November?
And by me, I mean, Flexo.
