International Pop Overthrow Festival 2014
Power Pop Rock N Roll good time!
Great Night of Power Pop and Rock 'n' Roll. Lorr's GOing Away Party.
I'm so excited to be dragging my happy ass up toe Portland. It's gonna be great. Timmy the Pratt is bringing the bass, and our old friend Forrest Brinkman is gonna get his drum on. Beyond Veronica and the Dandelyons round out the bill. Well worth the drive for us. If I can make ten hours, I can also make it worth it for you. See you there.

Bio: Beyond Veronica banded in the spring of 2002 and have found their niche with a retro, power pop sound and sexy style to boot. Just when pioneering female rock 'n roll rebels such as The Runaways, Blondie and The Avengers seemed to be a thing of the past, front woman Bonnie Veronica took the reins...See Full Bio

“Granted, I've always had a major weakness for female-fronted power pop. But while Beyond Veronica fit the bill to a T, they're so much more than mere heirs to the Blondie/Muffs prototype. What separates this band from the pack is that they draw liberally from the garage rock and girl group sounds of the 1960s - and then seamlessly blend those influences with more modern elements of power pop and '70s punk. Style-wise, their bang-on mix of garage and power pop will appeal to fans of both genres. Just as importantly, they bring some serious talent to the table. Bonnie Veronica and Kirk Larsen are a truly dynamic vocal/guitar tandem, and for sure this is a band that really knows how to write a good pop song. The group's second album Hard Times For Dreamers is 100 percent up my alley. But beyond that, it's really freakin' good! I'm glad to finally be hip to 'em! Add Hard Times For Dreamers to the ever-growing list of top ten caliber albums of 2012!”
