Lips Added to Noise Pop Festival Lineup
The Noise Pop Music Festival has its sights
on 2006 as a time to make some changes
and do things better (How do you get better
when you're the "awesomest?").
They've gotten off to a great start.
They've added a 7th day, to make it a
complete week, and they brought back the
Flaming Lips. That's right, the
Flaming Lips. They'll kick off
the day one as a massive introduction
to the festival with everyone in the music
world trying to get tickets to Bimbos
365 club, billed by Noise Pop as
an 'intimate setting.'
Other new band announcements include
deadboy & the Elephantmen, Aqueduct,
Asobi Seksu, Black Lips, Xiu Xiu, and
These Arms Are Snakes.
If you've been to or been a part of Noise
Pop in the past, they might use you
to do some blogging on their new Noise
Pop Blog. Send them a couple hundred
words on what made it so great, and if
you get the gig, you get to go for free
to every event. You also have to continually
write about it.
And this year is already looking to keep
its title of "awesomest" with
early confirmations on Four Tet's Kieran
Hebden (w/ Steve Reid), Feist, and Rogue
Wave, among others. There's also their
film festival and educational series.
Details are minimal now, but festival
organizers are promising more bands and
a few "tricks up their sleeve."
They've also launched the now standard
