Athens Popfest lineup announced!

According to the official site of Athens Popfest (and Gordon!), that annual festival of pop, twee, and other good things will announce its lineup on Friday, May 23. The fact that I'm pissed about Lost not being on tonight tells me it's Thursday, so Friday is just hours away.

Keep an eyes on the news section of the Popfest site for further info. I'll update when the lineup is available.

UPDATE: It's up! Holy cow...

They played last year. There's not much overlap between '07/'08 other than a few locals and HHBTM bands (and Thee American Revolution).

Yeah, Tullycraft would have been nice, as well as How I Became the Bomb, but there's enough hangovers from last year and new folks that I'm really excited. (Although they do have 16 more bands to announce, apparently!)
