After being postponed due to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the Power Pop-A-Licious 2 music festival will now take place on Friday, February 1 & Saturday, February 2nd at Cake Shop in New York City. *

Conceived and curated by power pop legend Paul Collins (co-founder of THE NERVES, THE BREAKAWAYS and THE BEAT), the fest will bring together some of the finest young guitar-driven power pop, garage rock and punk-pop bands from the eastern seaboard and Canada. Of the lineup, Collins says, “Power Pop-A-Licious 2 is a unifying rally cry for the thriving rock-n-roll subculture, and is a means for power pop fans of all ages to discover a wealth of talented new acts in one power-packed weekend.”

Collins explains the concept behind this year’s festival: “I wanted to keep the spirit of last year’s fest going. It was going to be a challenge to come up with a whole new bunch of bands that I personally believed in and that I thought meant something… In the end we were able to do that. All these bands are serious about what they are doing; they are all out there trying to make something happen, I am proud to be able to help them achieve that goal.”

Power-pop-A-Licious 2 is ground zero for a burgeoning DIY power pop scene fueled by the devotion of its fans, the immediacy of the internet and social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Each day will feature bands from the East Coast that are left right and center of the new generation of the guitar driven melodic rock scene.
Collins adds: “Today’s power pop bands blend punk, garage, retro-power pop, and psychedelic into one swirling sound. Personally I am not a purest about power pop, I am more interested in promoting bands that have cool songs and use electric guitars to get their point across.”

Tickets for the fest are $10 and will be available in advance from Brown Paper Tickets.

*Originally planned to take place at the fabulous Asbury Lanes but moved to NYC as a result of Hurricane Sandy…our deepest thanks to both Asbury Lanes and Cake Shop for their support.

PAUL COLLINS is Power Pop's greatest champion and spokesperson. Through extensive worldwide touring, and connecting to like-minded bands, artists and fans through social networking sites, Paul has created THE BEAT ARMY, a DIY network of people connected by their love of power pop, punk, new wave and rock-n-roll to help ensure its success at the club level - where rock-n-roll lives and breathes. While THE BEAT ARMY only began in March 2010, Collins has already amassed over 3,000 members. In addition, he's been touring heavily in support of both THE BEAT ARMY and his new album KING OF POWER POP! (Alive Records). "Since forming THE BEAT ARMY we've done 150-plus shows throughout the South, Canada, East Coast, Midwest and the West Coast involving over 100 bands from around the country," Collins states. "The shows all have low ticket prices (averaging from $8 to $10) and we book them ourselves. 'By the people, for the people'... that's our motto."

Power Pop-A-Licious 2 is sponsored by Revenge of the 80s Radio,The Vinyl District Generation Records, One Chord Progression and The Beat Army
