Noise Pop 2005
Serving up fresh music since 1993
at Great American Music Hall (8 pm) & Bottom of the Hill (7 pm) Music Festival
Read The Review
As the 13th edition of Noise Pop rapidly approaches, San Franciscans have more than a few reasons to feel lucky. Festival architect Kevin Arnold has managed to infuse the annual dart-around-town musical romp with another splendid combination of top-notch indie acts and local talent, while staying true to the original credo of highlighting acts outside the mainstream (unlike other California music festivals we know). The 2005 version, which takes place from Feb. 22 - 27 has all the makings of another rousing success. MORE
