We'll again return to Rickshaw Stop, Bottom of the Hill and add in a new venue or two this year. We've got some very exciting shows planned for this year. Just a couple of the band joining us this year will be Allo' Darlin, Catwalk and Sweater Girls. Many more will be announced soon.

Agreed. I missed Popfest '11, but I really want to go to Popfest '12 in San Francisco. Where can I find information on it and the Tour San Francisco?

Thanks in advance,
