Popup are from Glasgow. They are Damian, Adrienne, Michael and Nicholas. They write messy and bitingly honest guitar pop songs. In the last 18 months they have completed some 200 performances across the UK, Europe and in the USA. Some particular highlights include performances at T in the Park, Latitude, The Great Escape, SxSW07, The Paradiso (Amsterdam), The Knitting Factory (New York), The Purple Turtle (London) and headlining a sold-out King Tuts (Glasgow) in December 2007.

They have released two critically acclaimed singles in the UK through the Leeds-based independent record label Art/Goes/Pop and have recently completed their debut album 'a time & a place' with support from the Scottish Arts Council. The album is scheduled for an independent release in May 2008.

They are returning to SxSW in March 2008 following their hugely successful 23-date tour of the Lone Star State last year (which saw them play shows in prestigious venues, bars, dives, boutiques, coffee shops, barn dances, frat parties and drive-ways) and are very excited about presenting and performing their completed debut album to American audiences.
