Noise Pop 2019: The Marias, Katzù Oso, Ginger Root and Derek Ted at the Chapel

Closing out the final night of Noise Pop Festival 2019 was a melting pot of the Marías, Katzù Oso, Ginger Root, and Derek Ted on Sunday, March 3. The collective bill took the Chapel crowd to church with an eclectic palette of grooves and soul made for dancing, swaying, and just to have some goddamn good fun before Monday. First up: Derek Ted. The San Francisco-born, now Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter debuted his full-band performance by playing a majority crop of brand new folk-pop songs, possibly hinting at a fully-realized new album to follow up his 2017 "Hidden Thoughts" mixtape.

Noise Pop 2019: Teenage Fanclub’s untainted exuberance

Teenage Fanclub don’t have anything to prove. With 30 years of grit, the Scottish band has spent their career releasing consistently stellar power pop that recalls Big Star and the psychedelia of the British Invasion. Emerging from the C86 scene after the breakthrough success of 1991’s Bandwagonesque (which recently saw a reinterpretation from Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard), the group has had a bit of an understated impact commercially.
