Noise Pop 2010: Wednesday Preview

Though it seems that Noise Pop 2010 makes us wait for big headliners until the weekend, the first night of venue shows truly embraces the theme of this year's festival: local support on every level, with booking selections from SF's biggest headliners, to up-and-coming bands marketing their new material. One of San Francisco's finest indie rock staples Rogue Wave headlines Wednesday, and combining the hometown fandom with the limited capacity of Bottom of the Hill, it is no surprise that the show quickly sold out.
