POP Selected for Gyu-no Fes

In a decision that’s honestly about as surprising as the sun rising in the east, POP was selected as the winner of the Road to Tochigi battle earlier this week and are headed to the main stage at Gyu-no Fes.

Awesome photo, though.

I’m not alleging chicanery or anything — one way or another, just given that they had been chosen to headline a Gyuzo Farm event despite basically being brand new, it seemed like a foregone conclusion in a way. WACK’s influence, it seems, runs strong.

For Guso Drop and Screaming Sixties and the others who competed … I think they might wind up as part of the festival, anyway. I’ll admit that I’m not totally sure how it works. If you know, just say so down below.
