Synthpop goes the world : announcement party



Thanks all to those who came out to the announcement party at Velvet Underground! The funnest part was when they announced first call for last call. I thought, hey thats gotta be the last time they say that! Then they said “second call for last call”. Almost blew my fucking mind.

Then, if you can believe it, they actually said “third call for last call” !!!

Stay tuned for more pre-synthpop goes the world events and lineup announcements!
