IPO Seattle begins tomorrow!

First a quick note: If you're in downtown Seattle today, head to the free Visqueen show at the City Hall Plaza at noon.

The rest of your weekend should be based around happenings at the Sunset Tavern, which is hosting the second annual International Pop Overthrow. The IPO, for those that don't know its history, was started eight or nine years ago in Los Angeles, and it has now expanded to eleven different cities. 2006 was the first year it was held in Seattle.

Playing the degrees-of-separation game here... the IPO is named after the classic album by Material Issue, who had a minor hit with "Kim The Waitress," which is actually a song by the great Seattle powerpop band The Green Pajamas. Coming full circle with it, Green Pajamas are playing the Seattle IPO this year!
