FM. After a period of radio search from 25th march 2001 Pogopop broadcasts

In Roma there isn't anything
like this....Unfortunately the new music diffusion, overall the new european
and worldwide music scene, is poor known by the roman citizens, so POGOPOP's
purpose is to spread the seeds of the good music in Roma and everywhere!!!!!
Pogopop has put its three
best 1998 groups in the playlist of Espansione Rock on the Rocksound magazine,

Pogopop would like to
organize concerts in Roma. It is very hard because the venue managers are
not so generous with the bands playing...and sometimes they don't keep the
agreements...anyway we really want you make to play in Rome!!!
we'll give you all the info you need and we'll try to organize a date for
you!!! If you're interested in, contact us as soon as you decided to play
in Roma.....the venues define their schedule at least two months before, so
is very difficult to find a place if you don't give us the right time to
look for you.
Send us your demo and
some informative stuff about the band (your history, where you're used to
play etc...), tell us what you need to play there (bed and meals, money etc..)
along with some technical info (used PA etc. etc.) and if you're available
to share the stage with another band.
How is Roma
Roma is wonderful! You need at least 7 days to see just a part of our city.The weater
is always warm, there is the sun 360/365 days a year and the sky is light
blue during the day and blue-bright the night.The people is beautiful but
stressed by the traffic jam, which is the main problem of Roma.
There are 1000000000 things
to see, to study, to eat and drink.There are many places where to have fun
and some rest. We're at 30 Km from the sea and 70 Km from the snow.....so
But if we want to talk
about the music scene....well it's poor if compared to the other European
capitals. Few bands decide to play here, because we're a little bit far from
the middle of Europe, so Roma is not so easy to reach, and then because we
lack of venues, place where to play, founds dedicated to the alternative
How are the
ahhhhhhhhh!!!!! Unfortunately we have few interesting
recordshops for people who love the punk-rock-pop and astro-surf stuff!!
check out the recordshops and venue page.
Which is the
favourite Pogopop recordshop?
