cf 2012: for the love of pop
chickfactor (http://chickfactor.com/) will celebrate its 20-year anniversary with five blissful nights of sparkling indie pop on the Northeast Corridor of the USA (3 in NY; 2 in DC TBA) including the first shows in years by Black Tambourine, Small Factory, Pipas, The Aislers Set, A Girl Called Eddy, The Softies, The Lois Plus, and The Legendary Jim Ruiz Group, and rare performances from such pop luminaries as Stevie Jackson (Belle & Sebastian), Versus, Bridget St John and Honey Bunch.
chickfactor started in 1992 in D.C. and New York by pop-loving maniacs Pam Berry and Gail O'Hara, who used to travel up and down the East Coast seeing Small Factory, Honey Bunch, the Wedding Present and any other fine indie-pop bands of the era. We are spoiled silly and lucky as all get-out to be able to present this super-stellar line-up. Get your ticket fast, do not dilly-dally!
