Photos by: Charlie Homo While it is awesome that overall Noise Pop 2010 is roughly 2/3 Bay Area bands, Wednesday's show at Bottom of the Hill offered an even better 75% local and 100% good ol' California fun. I met another writer riding the 10 over who just moved out from Florida and told him there was not a better way to be introduced to the Bay Area indie rock scene.
