The annual Noise Pop Festival is a highlight for any music lover in San Francisco. A solid week of shows and other events from local and national artists at venues all around the city. (And extending into Oakland this year!) We’re covering different parts of the festival — from interviews, previews and reviews — and wanted to give special love to some of the local Bay Area artists on the roster.
There are so many! Serious props to Noise Pop for representing the Bay so well! From opening acts with solo guitar to headlining hometown favorites — this is a great way to find the scene you can connect with all year round.
Full schedule and all details can be found on the Noise Pop website here.
