Ready for another Noise Pop party before the music kicks off February 16th? Yes! Yes you are. On Tuesday, February 7th Bottom of the Hill hosts an opening reception for the Noise Pop Photo Retrospective (6-9pm, Free, 21+), a visual look at the previous 19 years of one of the Bay’s most influential and important musical events.

Everything that helped mold the festival into what it is today – the musicians, the fans, the venues – will be featured, thanks to these photographers who caught it all: Eduardo Acorda, Marlu Aufmuth, Jeanne Ellenby, Peter Ellenby, Charlie Homo, Sheila Menezes, Paige Parsons, Mike Rosati, Julie Schuchard, Shoka Shafiee, Matt Seuferer and Deb Zeller.

The party will feature sets from local rockers Plastic Villains and Cool Ghouls, as well as Trumer Beer specials. Check out Plastic Villains’ first ever music video for the song “Fish Hook Esquire” off the album Whoever You Are Today.
