I apologize to all of you have tried to contact me over the past week, I have not been able to respond until now... my father passed away and I was out of the country making arrangements for his funeral.
Got back last night.
On other news... Star and Bebek have both back out of playing the Popnoise Fest, I will fill in the slots shortly.
This will be the last year the Popnoise Fest will be held in Philadelphia so, I hope turn out is a good one to make this last one a blast.
I will not be booking anymore more bands or setting up tours for bands locally and a broad either. I thank all of you who have supported the events I have have been organizing since 98 and wish all of the bands that have been part of all of this the best- I have total faith in all of you and truely believe in what you do.
Godspeed to all!

Synth You Been Gone
The PopNoise Festival gets bigger and bolder.
by M.J. Fine
It's not so much a festival as a daylong summit of synth lovers. Now in its third year, PopNoise is the brainchild of Stellarscope frontman Tommy Lugo. Having juggled guitar, keyboards and vocals for nearly a decade, Lugo's in a prime position to be the event's booker, visual artist and hype man. "I receive hundreds of press kits that I sort through and listen to all of the CDs," he says via e-mail. From those, he picked more than a dozen groups to play the Rotunda on Saturday.
Lugo took to booking music in 1998, when he began throwing Flow of the Underground nights in Philly, New York, D.C. and Virginia, but the first PopNoise came together in 2004, after he'd proven himself by organizing an Alison Records tour. If he could keep a multinational fleet of moody artists on the road, gathering them all in one room should be a snap.
The music may not be mainstream, but Lugo kept mass appeal in mind when he set the lineup. One way to do that is to cast a wide net: "Indie, shoegaze, dreampop, goth, psychedelic, experimental, post rock," Lugo rattles off. "Basically, left-of-dial music." Within those boundaries, there are as many subgenres as there are bands on the bill.
With titles like "La Resistencia" and "La Nueva Conciencia," R-Tronika could have you dancing to songs about landmines and bombing campaigns; the Peru-via-Long Island duo makes protest music fit for a party. Puerto Rican space-rockers Psiconautas throw down theremin, moog and drum for extraterrestrial experimentation, while Richmond's Grayland stays grounded with brooding indie-pop and boy-girl singing.
If you're a sucker for romantic vocals, the clear catch is New York's Soundpool. "Eurostar" and "Millions&Billions&Trillions" back Kim Field's sweet melodies with lush synth, while "Brand New Dawn" has those Beach Boys harmonies.
Lugo shot for geographic diversity, but he made sure that Philly was well represented. With a dozen releases in eight years, proggy, gothy Stellarscope is the responsible oldest sibling who secretly likes to speed when no one else is in the car. L'Envoi is the boisterous little brother who plays with dissonance and tribal beats, and cloaks his enthusiasm in songs called "Desperate Hours" and "Awash in Composure." Woozy trip-hop duo Panda Riot is the sister in the middle: savvy, sassy and psyched, and not afraid to show it.
It was great to launch the festival in his hometown, but Lugo isn't content to sit back and play host. "The PopNoise Fest is actually going international as of the end of this year," he says. A three-day version planned for last month in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, got put on hold when his father died, but he's determined to export his extravaganza sooner rather than later. Lugo says he's lined up an even more eclectic mix of underground bands and Latin Grammy winners for a blowout in his native territory. And he's already thinking ahead for a PopNoise event in Mexico next year. From there, he may well take space rock to its logical final frontier: outer space. Er, Britain.

Rocking the Rotunda
PopNoise Festival promotes underground music in Philadelphia
Rachael L. Hidalgo
Issue date: 9/19/06 Section: Out and About Music was in the air at The University of Pennsylvania's campus this past Saturday as the PopNoise Festival made its way back to the Rotunda for the third year in a row. Stellarscope lead singer Tommy Lugo, who aimed to expose Philadelphia to the diverse sounds of underground music for free, created this unique concert series.
"There are so many talented artists out there being ignored and underappreciated," Lugo said. "I wanted to do something more for the underground community that I have been working with for so many years."
Lugo, a main sponsor of the event, represented and coordinated PopNoise with his record label Patetico Recordings. "I absorb the costs for the festival, promote it, market it, etc.," Lugo said.
When it comes to selecting 12 bands, Lugo is put in a tough position. "I receive hundreds of CDs throughout the year and it's a hard process because there are so many great bands out there. I try to select the bands I feel would cause a bigger impact as well as the ones who have wanted to play the previous festivals," Lugo said.
Inspired by bands such as Pink Floyd, Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead, Lugo sings and plays an assortment of instruments including guitar, keyboard, bass and programming boards. He has already recorded eight albums with his band Stellarscope, and also has a solo project called Panophonic.
Since 1998, Lugo has been coordinating events in Philadelphia to demonstrate the power of varied music. "[I started by] holding an ongoing show series called 'Flow of the Underground' that has been held in almost every venue locally, as well as Virginia, New York City and [Washington], D.C.," Lugo said.
The live performances of the festival were very appealing. Although the event began later than intended, interested students came from all parts of campus to hear the music.
The bands played one after another, and while setting up sets in between performances, PopNoise had DJ Scary Sarah of American Gothic Productions from Chicago spinning. The music, quite literally, never stopped.
Music fan Beth Huxta, a Temple graduate, attended the event for the first time to see L'Envoi, after hearing about them from a friend. Huxta said she liked the idea of a free concert.
With over a dozen bands including Soundpool, Grayland and the Opposite Sex playing at the event, there was clearly something to peak every interest.
Instead of mainstream music, PopNoise represented the sounds of indie, shoegaze, psychedelic and experimental rock. Other bands from the festival included R-Tronkia, Last Year's Model, Psiconautas, L'Envoi, Panda Riot and The Metrosexuals.
Soundpool, from New York City, is categorized more as an alternative, indie and shoegaze band. "With shoegaze, it's become synonymous with more ethereal rock that borders on electronic. We represent more of the left side of the spectrum type of music," guitarist and vocalist John Ceparano said. Their featured songs, "Walking on Air" and "Millions&Billions&Trillions" instantly delight audiences with their catchy beats and synthesized keyboards.
Grayland, a shoegaze band from Virginia, features a vocal duet that captures the hearts of indie-pop music fans and whose songs have a relaxing tone. Tunes such as "When Your Gone" and "1000 Miles" are surprisingly soothing.
Shaun Helton, from the post-punk band the Opposite Sex, categorized the band's music as exceptionally diverse "At times [our music] can be really aggressive and at times it can be really melodic, we're kind of across the board with something that's … beautifully chaotic," Helton said. They are expecting a new album to be released sometime this November.
Lugo is organizing a similar version of PopNoise in Puerto Rico called PopNoise Fest Puerto Rico. "This event will hold over 40 bands on two stages for three days. There will be camping … kind of like a mini underground Woodstock," Lugo said.
Lugo has the motivation and determination to make PopNoise an annually awaited part of Philadelphia culture.
"I firmly believe that you can't wait for things to happen for you," Lugo said. "You have to grab the bull by the horns and make things happen, and there is so much more work to be done."
