The first wave of performers at the 19th annual Noise Pop Festival have been announced.
Early bird badges are on sale now for $125 and include a free festival T-shirt. Regular badges are $160 and will be available on December 9th. The festival will be held on February 22 - 27 and will take place in various venues around the city (Bottom of the Hill, Great American Music Hall, etc.). Noise Pop also includes a film festival, art shows, a craft fair, and a music industry conference.
For the first time in their careers, El Perro del Mar (Sarah Assbring) and Taken by Trees (Victoria Bergsman) paired up for a U.S. tour in which the two friends have been sharing a band and alternating headline slots. On February 19, the artists compiled the best of their repertoires and gave Harvard Square's Brattle Theatre, a night full of mellow, and opposingly fierce sampling of their unique melodies.
