Power Pop-A-Licious Festival's Yummy Battle Plans

Move over, simpsluts and dudstuds, the powerpoppers are invading the Jersey Shore the weekend of April 30-May 1 and taking no prisoners. Under the auspices of Beat Army Commander Paul Collins, the first annual Power Pop-A-Licious Festival deploys in Asbury Park, NJ for a two-day live-fire by 18 new and battle-hardened powerpop bands. (Okay, they're doing it at a bowling alley--the vintage Asbury Lanes--but bear with our mixed metaphor thing, mkay?)

The generous Power Pop-A-Licious Pentagon (aka Pavement PR) are making 16 free and legal downloadables available here, from which we selected that opening salvo. We might post more--they gave us permish--but please go test-fire the rest if you like. Many thanks to Pavement PR, Paul Collins, and all concerned.
