Noise Pop 20th Anniversary - February 21-26, 2012


In case you’re unfamiliar; Noise Pop is the CMJ/SXSW of San Francisco, and has earned its reputation over 20 years by championing the independents, the up-and-comers, and the DIY ethos of the Bay Area.

Noise Pop consistently has some of the biggest names in independent music play the festival, and have spread their mission beyond music – they also have a film festival, art shows, a pop up shop, a two day craft-and-workshop experience, and a monthly pairing of a chef and an album for a dinner series they call Covers. No need to wait for that thing in march music nerds!

The festival runs February 21st – 26th with The Flaming Lips performing The Soft Bulletin in its entirety and Bob Mould to play Copper Blue from start to finish (for ghe first time ever).
