Portugal. The Man

Tomorrow is the last full day of Noise Pop, and it's a duesy. But before you start your night of shows, head over to the Pop N' Shop at The Verdi Club. This awesome independent design fair has become one or Noise Pop's coveted non-music events, and includes designers and artists selling clothing, jewelry, posters and more. It takes place from 12pm-4pm and is free!

Saturday will also feature a couple of matinee shows, one of which is at Bottom of the Hill with The Matches, Dizzy Balloon and Ex-Boyfriends. Oakland's The Matches are guaranteed to put on a fun show with their brand of pop-punk:

As night breaks, you've got some fantastic options. The Independent will host New York's self-proclaimed "New Pornographers on acid," AC Newman. He plays with Dent May and his Magnificent Ukulele (MS), Devon Williams (LA) and City Light (Seattle). This feels like a rare line-up for the Bay Area -- a great grouping of some of indie rock's up-and-coming bands. 8pm, $15.

Cafe Du Nord also has a fantastic lineup with Portugal. The Man, Girls, Love is Chemicals and Agent Ribbons. Portugal. The Man playes a unique breed of indie with plenty of synth sounds and noises, and various vocals overdubbed and effected to their heart's desire. 9pm, $13. For the full night's schedule, head over to Noise Pop's website.
