Expedia is showing flights from Glasgow to SF with a one week stop in NYC for £401 which is pretty good. Just 40 tenners to borrow!

Ah! This is so tempting. If only I had some pop friends in San Francisco whose floors I could sleep on!

I'm pretty excited about all the line-up as it is, but Northern Portrait, wow! It's not so easy anymore to see the northern European indiepop I was spoilt by while in London... woo hoo!

Yup!

We've also got an indiepop dance party happening after our Friday show (at which ballboy will be playing) and a free acoustic picnic show in a local park in the works with Gordon Ballboy, Let's Whisper (Colin Clary + friends), Dan & Emma from The Pocketbooks, Gregory Webster and others in town for SFPopfest.

We're planning on Dylan (ATI!) playing our acoustic picnic show. We haven't announced all of the local-ish bands yet for the picnic and other weekend afternoon show.
