The 9th Edition.

September 29th - October 3rd.

350 artists vying for you attention.

Some of the big names this year includes The XX, who just won the
coveted Mercury Prize, England’s annual music prize awarded for that
year’s best album which their self-titled debut was the favorite to win.

Macy Gray, German Digital Hardcore band Atari Teenage Riot (reuniting
after a 10 year hiatus), Les Savy Fav, 80’s New Wave (and former Talking
Heads
members) Tom Tom Club, Van Dyke Parks (who wrote songs with Beach
Boy’s Brian Wilson on the legendary album “Smile”) and so on.

Local band The Dears will have a 3 night residency at the Portuguese
Santa Cruz Church playing in it’s entirety, their still-to-be-titled
album coming out in January 2011.

The first single “Omega Dog” was released today as a video shot live
in Mexico City. — > YouTube

Tickets for all 3 shows can be purchased here.

Their label Dangerbird Records have setup a poster design contest for
this  multi-city residency run and they want you to vote for your favorite
design: http://dangerbirdrecords.com/resources/thedears-contest/

Back are the Film Pop, Puces Pop DIY & Craft Fair and to get some sweet
deals on old records and music Paraphernalia of all sorts, the Puces
Pop Record Fair
held in the basement of the Ukrainian Federation
October 2nd & 3rd from 11am-6pm.
