Noise Pop Music
Festival Announces More Bands,
Film Festival, Indie Night School
The Noise Pop Music Festival has
announced more bands for the 2006 event,
including Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt,
Neil Halstead and more.
There's also a film festival with interesting
titles like The M-80 Project, a
1979 no/new wave Festival from Minneapolis'
Walker Art Center; Amazing Grace: Jeff
Buckley; and Directions: Death
Cab For Cutie, a San Francisco premiere
of the Death Cab for Cutie DVD with a
video for every song on their 2005 album
New York's Indie Night School
will travel westward to host daytime sessions
that feature music writers explaining
how to get your band noticed when there's
a million other bands out there that sound
just like yours.
So far Tonya Glanz (Killing My
Lobster) and Shawn Reynaldo (KALX
Berkley) have been added to a growing
list of on the spot bloggers on their
new Noise Pop Blog. They'll be
uploading simultaneous virtual experiences
for everyone who can't be there.
They're teaming up with the mobile art
show Feira Urbana to create a Noise
and Pop Shop, that will feature art,
a record fair, and a Noise Pop Poster
