The Embassy + The Secret History + A Smile and A Ribbon + Neverever + More

NYC Popfest. The Secret History is an outfit that swaggers and shouts triumphantly through the trenches of Michael Grace Jr.'s lifelong war against silence. Live, watch as singer Lisa Ronson's gravitas focuses the band's tunes from debut album The World That Never Was into bona fide anthems. Also on the bill is Glasgow duo Neverever, a band that sounds like a more surf-rock-tinged Belle and Sebastian. For more information and a full schedule, go to
