Has it been a year already since the debut Nebraska Pop Festival? Damn. How old am I now, 28? Wow. (Everyone younger reading this is like, “Dude, you’re almost 30 and getting fat and boring. How’s working in a cubicle treating you, jerk-off? Party on you fucking pansy!” And I say, “I don’t work in a cubicle, thank you very much. Now I have to go cut the grass before it gets dark.” While those older offer bitter spats referencing half-forgotten experiences: “Son, when I was 28 we didn’t have the internets and cell phones. If we wanted to hear new music, we turned on the AM. If we wanted to watch cute videos of cats, we had to tune into Bob Saget on ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ every week…” “Yeah, yeah, whatever dude,” I say, rolling these green eyes of mine.)

But  yeah. Anyway. I’m totally looking forward to this year’s Nebraska Pop Festival. We’re playing on Friday, September 17 at the Pizza Shoppe Collective here in Omaha. I just got a shipment of zines (which I helped to produce) from festival curator Christopher and a fleet of other NPF loot. It’s all DIY, so you know everyone’s heart is in the right place. This is for the love of pop music, its artists and its fans.

The zine is distributed all around the cultural hotspots of Omaha. It serves to both promote the festival and act as a guide. Most of the content was provided by the performers, so the overall editorial voice is very free flowing and collaborative, albeit a bit spastic. It’s even Commander Troi- and Commander Riker-approved, although Deanna’s tricorder apparently picked up no signs of any life forms…

Maybe they should just download the Nebraska Pop Festival digital mixtape here to get a more multi-media friendly NPF experience.

Here’s the full lineup via the Nebraska Pop Festival MySpace:
