Athens Popfest 2007 lineup released

With Athfest starting today, it's only appropriate that the list of bands has just been released for the upcoming Athens Popfest in August.

Mike from HHBTM has once again done a wonderful job of assembling talent for Popfest. Here's the final list of bands as he sent it along:

Daniel Johnston (Danny & the Nightmares), Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Circulatory System, Tullycraft, Casper & the Cookies, Bunnygrunt, the Instruments, the Postmarks, Elekibass, Dark Meat, We Versus the Shark, Red Pony Clock, the Marbles, thee American Revolution, High Water Marks, Ideal Free Distribution, Cinemechanica, How I Became the Bomb, Kite Flying Society, Cars Can Be Blue, Fishboy, Baby Calendar, Darren Hanlon, Velcro Stars, M Coast, Ryan Anderson, Venice is Sinking, New Sound of Numbers, Patience Please, Turncoats, Ninety Nine, Ryan Anderson, the Smittens, Birds of Avalon, Black Kids, Pipes You See Pipes You Don’t, Poison Control Center, Jerk Alert, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Laminated Cat, Quiet Hooves, Oh Sanders, Violet Vector & the Lovely Lovelies, Christopher’s Liver, Titans of Filth, Hat Company, Mouser, Russian Spy Camera, Paper Tanks, Yellow Fever, Chainestereo, Gemini Cricket, Fabulous Bird, Smokedog, and Folklore.

Wow. Just... wow.

The schedule is a work in progress, but is being pieced together.

By the way, if any Athens locals have a vinyl copy of Pylon's Gyrate that looks a bit worn out then the band would like to borrow it for an album cover and compensate you with goodies. Write me and I'll pass along their contact info.

I'm really excited to see Daniel Johnston, Tullycraft, Kite Flying Society, and the two Robert Schneider bands. Lots of others too, but those are biggies.

For me Tullycraft and Ted Leo are the real highlights. I wish it was just Daniel Johnston playing rather than Danny & the Nightmares.

Bought my four-day pass. Yay!

Only 125 being sold... can't get into the day shows without one.

Fuck Ted Leo. Robert Schneider, Daniel Johnston, and Tullycraft are living indie rock legions as far as I’m concerned. When will you ever get a chance to see three such influential artists in one place? It’s funny because if you look at the other bands at the festival, they all pretty much took their sound from one of these three. God! How many Tullycraft and Apples in Stereo wannabes are here?! Too many to count!

I predict Beach Boys house music if Brian Wilson can't be there in person.

Conveniently an old roommate from Atlanta is getting married on the 11th. I may have to find a way to show up early.
