Noise Pop 2011 in San Francisco

noise-pop

If you’re like me, then you’re always on the hunt for new music, that will challenge the popular, commercial dreck, not worth even mentioning. So I won’t. Also, if you’re like me, you probably get bored quickly after finding new music and you have to have even newer music. This is where Noise Pop comes in. Noise Pop returns to San Francisco this week, February 22-27.

I attended my first Noise Pop in 1996, and I still have the amazing Frank Kozik poster to prove it.

Here’s the Nose Pop 2011 line up and all the info you could ever need about the event. There are some great bands playing this year; many of them local. Many venues are selling out already. They have updates on the news page.

Some of the artists performing this week include:

Ted Leo (solo) with A B & the Sea
Aesop Rock
The Concretes
The Ferocious Few
The Fresh and Onlys
Wavves
NoBunny

There’s an iPhone/iPod Touch app that goes with the event this year.
