Let's start with tonight: Minipop, from San Francisco, will be headlining at Bottom of the Hill starting at 8:30pm. They'll be playing with Trophy Fire, Two Sheds and West Indian Girl. Last time we saw them, we couldn't get enough. They are absolutely first-rate. In 2007, Minipop released their debut full length A New Hope on Take Root Records and played about 75 shows. We can't believe the show isn't sold out (yet)!
Saturday night, Port O'Brien will be co-headlining with Delta Spirt at Cafe du Nord. We saw Port O'Brien open for Nada Surf earlier this month. We were completely entertained the entire night. Not only did they play some awesome music (they even include a banjo in their band) but they were quite funny throughout. With Super Tuesday looming, they ended up dedicating several of their songs to most of the presidential candidates.
Many individual Noise Pop shows are already sold out including The Gutter Twins, The Mountain Goats, British Sea Power, She & Him and Holy Fuck. A Noise Pop Badge is the only way to guarantee entry into all the sold out general admission festival shows. Unfortunately, the Noise Pop Badges are not for sell anymore - so hopefully you already bought tickets to the shows you wanted to see!
