Noise Pop 2019 • Emphasis on Local Spotlight

 
Noise_Pop_2019_Local.png

Noise Pop is a yearly music festival that takes over a large number of the venues in San Francisco and Oakland. The Bay Area ignites with excitement each March when the festival begins with a mixer at The Academy of Science.

With 18+ venues, attendees have an amazing opportunity to experience a large chunk of the city. For my week, I chose to pick a cross section of the festival that mostly focused on local Bay Area talent. This was my way of celebrating the festival’s local bands.

For me, the excitement of the festival is partaking in the free happy hour shows at Benders. Then departing from there to one of the many other venues. It’s a great way to see industry professionals and discover new music. This year, in addition to the bands I saw at Benders, I also saw My Brightest Diamond, Zola, and Lapel on Tuesday at Rickshaw Stop. Coincidentally I saw three shows at Bottom of The Hill, including Anemone, Sugar Candy Mountain, Agouti and LiXi on Wednesday. Then Travis Hayes, Madi Sipes, Maita, and Alycia Lang on Thursday. Followed by Ben Morrison (Of The Brothers Comatose), Andrew St. James, Trebuchet, and Television Spies on Saturday. Friday I saw Uffie, Mphd, Starfari, and Vverevvolf.

While the 2019 Noise Pop Festival has passed, you don’t have to wait until 2010 to experience Noise Pop’s shows. They have other festivals and an on going series at The Swedish American Hall.
