After the cavalcade of Noise Pop offerings on Saturday night, Sunday’s got just two shows and handful of films.
Bottom of the Hill features an afternoon show with locals Dizzy Balloon. They’ll be joined by a trio of indie rock bands from around the US: Michigan’s The Hounds Below, Seattle’s Visqueen, and Wisconsin’s Laarks.
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros‘ Noise Pop closing show at Bimbo’s sold out super quickly, but looks like there are some tickets available on Craigslist if you’re willing to pay a steep price. If you are going, be sure to arrive early for locals AB & The Sea and The Northern Key.
All My Friends Are Funeral Singers Trailer from Califone on Vimeo.
On the film front, All My Friends Are Funeral Singers is a feature film from writer/director Tim Rutili, also of the band Califone, who released the companion soundtrack album last year. Over at the Mezzanine, there’s a sneak preview of a documentary about the Magnetic Fields that’s premiering at SXSW in March. Merritt and bandmate Claudia Gonson are expected to attend a Q-and-A session after the screening.
