Notes::Casper & the Cookies play Popfest, tour with Tokyo’s Elekibass, ready new EP

After this week’s Athens Popfest (www.hhbtm.com/popfest) where they will be playing two sets– one backing up Daniel Johnston–Athens, Georgia popsters Casper & the Cookies will join Japan’s Elekibass on their tour of the Southeastern U.S. Another band was slated to support Tokyo’s premier pop act but backed out at the last minute. So the road-loving Cookies interrupted the recording of their next album and jumped on board for the two-week stint. Casper & the Cookies have been on the road for four months already in 2007, opening for the likes of The Apples in Stereo in the U.S. and Canada.These shows are not to be missed. Both bands are known for highly entertaining live shows and have previously toured together in both the U.S. and Japan. The tour starts with both bands playing Athens Popfest and culminates at the Bottletree Café in Birmingham, Alabama. Casper & the Cookies have also put the finishing touches on a new EP to be sold on tour and online only through HHBTM Records. Called 3 ½ Stars, it features originals and covers the Cookies have been playing on tour this year.
