GREAT NEW MUSIC: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

If you were looking for yet another reason to get your ass down (or up depending on where you're at) to this year's Athens Popfest, then behold...The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. It's their first time out of New York, promoting their first EP, and playing their first Athens Popfest...whew that's quite a few "firsts"!! But unlike most people's first time, they're going to do it to us twice in the same day!! They're not only playing Athens Popfest on 8/11, but they're also playing the Drunken Unicorn later on that night in Atlanta!! What stamina! What bad sexual innuendo!! TPOBPAH is fun, upbeat pop for fans of The Smiths, Psychedelic Furs, Stars, The Jesus and Mary Chain, or even early My Bloody Valentine. Remember that time that girl you got all stupid nervous around in high school asked for a ride home one day, and then surprisingly kissed you before running into her house? Remember the ride home listening to some fuzzy-dreamy-pop song, taking the long way home on purpose? No? Oh wait, that was me....but that's how their music an all fuzzed-out euphoria. Georgians try catch 'em at both shows if you can, and for the East Coast there are a few dates for you as well.
