Noise Pop, champions of independent culture since 1993 have announced their 2007 dates. According to their newsletter:
Noise Pop 2007 will be held February 28 to March 4, 2007 marking a return to a familiar spot on the calendar with six nights of live music, film screenings and special events. Once again Noise Pop will kick off the West Coast music festival season. Next year’s festival is our 15th anniversary and we’re already at work on making it the most amazing yet. You’re first in line for details as they develop, we promise…
In related news they have also announced the debut of their podcast with their New Music podcast. Again, according to their newsletter:
This is the first of a series of Noise Pop – produced digital audio shows for your listening pleasure. Each month we’ll bring you 10 brand new tracks of the best new independent music with extra attention paid to the San Francisco Bay Area’s vibrant scene, bands that have played Noise Pop Festivals and events as well as our favorite new underground rock, garage, punk, and hip hop. Hosted by Noise Pop’s own Christopher Appelgren.
Finally, they have announced a partnership with the great Little Radio:
Noise Pop Joins Forces with Little Radio
Little Radio, based out of Los Angeles, is an awesome internet radio station/blogwire/podwire that is one of Noise Pop’s favorite spots on the web because of the great DJs (including The Beastie Boys) and constantly updating cross-section of crucial news and opinions from the music blogosphere. So when Little Radio asked us here at Noise Pop if we’d be interested in doing a weekly show, we jumped at the opportunity. Starting June 27th at 10 AM tune into Little Radio for our own show, Noise Pop with Christopher Appelgren. If you can’t listen live, we’ll archive the shows as downloadable podcasts each week. Our show will showcase San Francisco and exclusive music captured live during various years’ Noise Pop Festival.
Noise Pop with Christopher Appelgren
10 AM – 12 PM Every Tuesday on Little Radio.
