We're wishing Noise Pop a happy birthday today, as San Francisco's indie-est music festival kicks off its 14th year. The all-festival badges are sold out, as are tickets to some of the biggest shows, but SFist will bring you our coverage so you can live vicariously. Check the festival schedule for all the shows, and stay tuned for SFist's show reviews and what we're hoping is going to turn out to one Noise Pop giveaway every day this week. SFist Emily is also going to re-run her interviews with Noise Pop performing artists so you can know before you go.
The Noise Pop film festival has a stellar lineup of films this year about The Flaming Lips, Jeff Buckley, Death Cab, and local favorites The Heavenly States. Check out the full film fest schedule.
We'll see you badge holders and VIPs at tonight's Opening Night Party with Kennedy and DJ Disco Shawn at Thee Parkside!
