IT'S NOT BRITNEY SPEARS
IF IT SOUNDS LIKE THE BEATLES IT'S POWER POP.
This website is dedicated to the musicians on the New York Power Pop Scene, in the quixotic hope that the publicity will encourage the popularity of my favorite musical genre.

Network with Power Pop Fans!
Unless this is the first webpage you ever looked at and you haven't been keeping up with the news, you surely have heard about MySpace. Teens use it to meet each other, but musicians use it to network with their fans. After registering, you request to become a "friend" of the person or artist. After they accept you as a "friend", their picture appears on your profile, and you can communicate with them. It's very addictive, I spend way too much time on it. Add me, please. I don't want to look like a loser in front of my classmates, haha.
