While it's not much for now, Noise Pop Industries has announced the initial lineup and dates for San Francisco's long-running citywide music festival. Local music fans, mark your calendars for February 25th - March 2nd, 2014.
With only eight of the roughly 100 bands that will likely make the final lineup announced today, this is really more of a Save the Date that a full-on invitation. Still, it bodes well for the festival, which is going into it's 22nd year.
Here's the teaser lineup:
Mark Kozelek (of Sun Kil Moon & Red House Painters)
Bob Mould (25 Years of 'Workbook')
Free Salamander Exhibit
For those of you who are already stoked, Early Bird badges are onsale now for $125 — a steal, really, for admission to all the shows, happy hours, and special events during the six-day fest. Prices go up to $150 later and there are also $350 Super Fan Badges for a VIP experience.
Oh and if you haven't yet made it to Noise Pop's Musical Pursuit Trivia night: it happens once a month on Tuesdays and we bet one of the prizes will include free festival passes.
In the meantime, here's Cayucas with their So Cal-meets-Wes Anderson video for "Cayucos":
