San Francisco's Noise Pop music festival has announced the dates for it's 2007 event. It will be the 15th anniversary of Noise Pop, and festival organizers are promising it will be 'the most amazing yet.' The dates for the 2007 festival are February 27th - March 4th.
If you've got a band, and you're sufficiently noisy (or pop, better yet both) you can still try to land a gig at the festival. Submissions are being accepted until December 31st from bands that qualify as Indie Rock, Alternative, Rock, Punk, Hip Hop, or Singer-songwriter. Dig it.
The same goes for the film festival... get in by December 31st if you've got a narrative feature, documentary, short, animation, experimental piece, or music video.
The festival made 2006 as a time for revolutionary change. They added a 7th day, to make it a complete week. In addition to the music, there's a film festival, panel events, and the Noise Pop Shop, which featured Feira Urbana in 2006 with art, a record fair, and a Noise Pop Poster show.
Noise Pop started in 1993 as a one night deal with 5 bands in a small club, but has grown over time to include multiple days, multiple locations, film screenings, panels, and art. It has played host the Flaming Lips doing a boombox experiment, Frank Black and the Catholics doing Pixies songs, Death Cab For Cutie, 16 Deluxe, and more. They even tried to spawn a sister Noise Pop in Chicago in 2000.
