If you’re in San Francisco this week, you can’t miss Noise Pop (February 21 – 26, 2012), the city’s favorite indie music, arts and film festival. A few of the scheduled activities are free, including the happy hour concerts that take place all week.
A few arts and culture events such as workshops, sessions, and guest speakers take place throughout the week. The film screenings and a few other ticketed events are on the cheap side, around $10.
“The week long celebration, now in its 20th year, of indie music and culture prides itself on bringing exposure to emerging artists, many of whom have gone on to widespread acclaim, including the White Stripes, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, Death Cab for Cutie, The Shins, Bright Eyes, The Donnas, Jeff Tweedy (of Wilco) and Silversun Pickups. The festival has also featured underground music legends such as Bob Mould, X, Frank Black (of the Pixies), Sleater-Kinney, and Television. Noise Pop also includes the ever-popular Noise Pop Film Series, Pop ‘N’ Shop, Culture Club, gallery art shows and much more.”
THAT’S A WRAP!
