Noise Pop is a little over a month away and it just keeps getting bigger and better. As we close in towards our final lineup, our roster of artists has nearly doubled. We’ve got a lot to be excited about. Additions include Best Coast, Flight Facilities, Les Sins, Kindness and more. If you’ve already got your festival badge, then you’re all set to see everything you can handle. If you haven’t picked up your pass yet, maybe it’s time to consider it, if you want to get into those sold out shows. As always, you can buy tickets to individual shows. Tickets go on sale this Friday, at noon.
Starting this upcoming Monday, January 5th, we are introducing a new series at flour + water called Dinner with the Band. Dinner with the Band will be an intimate evening, once a month, where you can dine side by side with an artist. Each night will feature music hand selected by the band, a sampling of their taste. Our first dinner takes place this Monday and will feature selections by Tim Carr. Upcoming dinners will feature a night with Geographer, February 2nd, and Giraffage, March 2nd. Join us at flour + water, here in the Mission, for a night with the best music and the best food! The fun begins at 9:30pm!
SF Sketchfest is one of, if not the, biggest comedy festivals in the country, and in 2015, Noise Pop will be getting a little slice of the action! That’s right, we’ll be teaming up Sketchfest to celebrate acclaimed comedy duo Scharpling and Wurster. Tom Scharpling, the once and future host of The Best Show, was ranked #31 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 50 funniest people and is also known as a television writer and music-video director. Jon Wurster is the drummer for indie rock pioneers Superchunk and has also lent his percussive talents to Bob Mould, The Mountain Goats, Ben Gibbard, R.E.M. and more. He has written for Adult Swim’s “Squidbillies” and is the voice of all of the characters on the popular Scharpling & Wurster CDs.
The show is Sunday, January 25, 2015 at Marine’s Memorial Theater. Find tickets here.
Noise Pop is excited to announce our 2015 film series, now in its 16th year. We have moved the series back to precede the music portion and kick off the 2015 festival this upcoming February 20th. With this change, we are offering a film series badge this year separately from the music badge. The film badge, available for $50, will offer entry to any and all of the film screenings at many of San Francisco’s unique theaters including The Roxie, Artists’ Television Access, Swedish American Hall, and the Independent. This year we’ve got films featuring Devo, Spike Jonze, Rye Coalition, and more! Those who have already purchased a music badge will be emailed a promotional code for the opportunity to upgrade their badge to include all films in the series for $30. Super Fans will have access to all films as part of their VIP experience—no upgrade necessary.
