Noise Pop 2010: !!!, Maus Haus, Sugar & Gold, My First Earthquake @ The Mezzanine

!!!, Maus Haus, Sugar & Gold and My First Earthquake all brought their A-game to the Mezzanine last Saturday night. My First Earthquake, a local electro-pop quartet, opened up the night with their snappy humorous ditties. "Sack Lunch" - about a pervy teacher (Rebecca's words, not mine) - and "Hot Girlfriend" were the standouts of the night. Lead singer Rebecca Bortman is a born show-woman, ribbing her band mates and chatting up the audience before prompting us to rock the fuck out. "Cool in the Cool Way" (which has an accompanying video about Mission hipsters), with its Nintendo-inspired synth riffs, [...]

Noise Pop 2010: Saturday Preview

Saturday is Noise Pop's busiest day, with more events than you can shake a stick at (and who shakes sticks anyways?). Before even getting to the nighttime stuff, three daytime events are all worth noting. Fans of independent crafts and design should swing by the free Pop and Shop at the Verdi Club, while aspiring moguls and music tech geeks should head over to Industry Noise for panels about the state of indie music and networking opportunities galore. If you go to either, though, I'd plan to head out in time to make it to the Brooklyn Vegan-presented Happy Hour [...]
