Unless you’re at a political convention, it’s not often you find yourself in a packed room of like minds, but the Power Popalicious Festival in May of 2011 was just that. The festival, curated by our friend and the King of Power Pop, Paul Collins, brought together throngs of music fans of both the Power Pop and Garage Rock variety who wedged themselves into Asbury Park, NJ’s Asbury Lanes for 2 full days of rock and roll.
And Paul is doing it again.
Billed as a “power pop music celebration,” Power Popalicious II returns to Asbury Park and the Asbury Lanes this November 16 and 17 to ease the ass shakin’, hook laden, gritty guitar ache your sweet tooth has been pining for.
TVD is once again a proud sponsor of Power Popalicious (both I and II) and as we inch closer to the actual dates, we’ll have features on the bands and whatever else we can come up with to make sure you’re dancing right along with us at the Lanes.
