The fiercely independent music and arts festival, which has been going strong since 1993, takes place at numerous venues around San Francisco and runs from February 26-March 3. Noise Pop shows are on sale individually, but a season pass is highly recommended.
Noise Pop Expands Lineup of Shows
15 new acts added
Noise Pop has added 15 more DJs, artists and bands to the 2013 festival lineup, which (as we previously reported) includes Amon Tobin, Jason Lytle and Rogue Wave. At the top of the list of new additions is atmospheric folk rocker Damien Jurado, who released his 10th studio album Maraqopa last year. Jurado will play a show on March 1 at The Chapel.
Among the other new highlights on the Noise Pop schedule are five piece psychedelic indie pop outfit White Arrows, who will support !!! on February 28 at the Great American Music Hall.
Also worth checking out is lo-fi electronic composer and producer Marcel Everett, who performs under a name that makes Scrabble fans yearn for more high-value letters and the ability to play proper nouns, XXYYXX (which would be worth a whopping 132 points were it to be played horizontally from the bottom left corner of the board!). He’ll be paired with the blissful chillwave sounds of Teen Daze, who’ll be dropping a DJ set. This experimental double feature can be experienced on February 28 at the DNA Lounge.
The other additions to the Noise Pop bill are Paul Basic, SuperVision, Caspian, Native, Wax Idols, Ceremony, Kacey Johansing, SISU, The Yellow Dogs, R. Stevie Moore, and Plateaus.
