The Noise Pop weekend kicks off with two free happy hours. At Thee Parkside, it’s local art-poppers The Dont’s and atmospheric rockers The Union Trade, along with The High Violets. 5-8pm, Free. Meanwhile, at the Diesel store (at 101 Post St), there are DJ sets by a number of indie rock’s finest, but we’re most intrigued by an acoustic set from the amazing Port O’Brien. 6pm-9pm, Free.
