Charlotte rocks Dawkins

Charlotte Pop Fest is a multi-day music festival that will feature well-established internationally known artists in addition to local and regional indie artists in the “power pop” genre. The event will take place in the Fall of 2009 in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina.

Proceeds from Charlotte Pop Fest will be used to support rational and scientific education at all ages, and to oppose the subversion of scientific education, for example by the well-financed efforts to teach pseudoscience in science classes. This includes advanced tickets sold through the Charlotte Pop Fest Web site; tickets sold at the door during the event; this year’s edition of the compilation CD; and any other event-specific merchandise like t-shirts, posters, etc.

Event organizer and power pop musician James Deem is making his contribution to this year’s compilation CD available immediately via digital download from iTunes, Amazon, Napster, and Rhapsody.

James Deem recorded a version of the song “Dear God” written by Andy Partridge and originally recorded in 1986 by the “power pop” band XTC.

All proceeds from the sale of the single will benefit the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science.
