A Nice Little Mention... 

Thanks to Richard Rossi of Power Pop News for the kind passing reference to Thrift Store Halo in his review of a new release by a Spanish band, Wild Animals. Mr. Rossi writes:

"I’ve always had a thing for power trios. Material Issue, Husker Du and more recently, Thrift Store Halo. And, I’d always thought Spaniards to have excellent taste in music. So when I was told that Wild Animals, a power trio from Madrid, were about to release their latest full length, I figured it was a good time to become acquainted with them and their soon to be released album entitled The Hoax."

We will definitely check out the new release by Wild Animals!

Thrift Store Halo @ International Pop Overthrow Fest - Chicago in Chicago, IL

International Pop Overthrow Fest - Chicago, Chicago, IL

International Pop Overthrow (or IPO, as it has affectionately become known) is a pop music festival which has been held for the past eighteen years in Los Angeles. We have also held IPO for various years in Chicago, New York, Boston, San Francisco, Phoenix, Detroit, Atlanta, Portland, Nashville, Austin, Vancouver, and Toronto, as well as in Liverpool (at the world famous Cavern Club), and London, UK! In 2015, we held our first ever IPO in Stockholm, Sweden, and it was amazing!! We even did a special limited edition IPO in Tel Aviv last year! We are kicking off our exciting 2018 season, which marks our 21st year in LA and 16th in Liverpool; we hope you can join us at one or more festivals this year!!

Each International Pop Overthrow features between 25-180 of the best pop bands from around the world. Everyone from the bands to the spectators has a wonderful time, and although we’re all exhausted by the end, we part company with one prevailing thought: “I can’t wait to do it again next year!”

The purpose of International Pop Overthrow is two-fold: one aim is to give every worthy band who’d like to play their music in a festival atmosphere the chance to do so, and the other is to bring pop music the attention it so richly deserves. We have made great strides to that end, garnering press in several noteworthy papers and blogs in each city in which we hold the festival, and creating a very positive buzz about pop music within the independent music community. In addition, every artist who plays the festival feels as if they’re part of something fulfilling, being on bills with like-minded artists with whom they can bond, and playing in front of an audience who will “get” their music.
