The Old-Fashioned Way

We promise that beginning next week, our news coverage won't be all-Noise-Pop, all-the-time, but it's difficult to resist talking about the wealth of interesting things they're bringing to the city this weekend.

Saturday and Sunday, the Noise Pop Expo will be taking place at the Swedish American Hall from 1-6pm. It's five bucks and features local indie designers selling their wares, a series of panels about the music industry, and a stage featuring solo acoustic performances by a variety of acts, including Matt Lutz of The Herms and Michael Zapruder, both of whom have played past The Bay Bridged Presents shows. Times for specific performances have not yet been announced.
