Pop! The Beat Bubble Burst (Music)
Pop! The Beat Bubble Burst explores the music of the sixties with an emphasis on British Invasion and Mersey Beat. It then traces those branches to the present day by playing music that echoes the music of the sixties including power pop, jangle pop, pub rock, glitter and glam rock, neo-psychedelia and indie pop.
