–  Badges Available For Purchase Now / Individual Shows On Sale This Friday
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (October 24, 2017) – Noise Pop Festival, the Bay Area’s premiere indie music and arts festival, is excited to announce phase one of the music lineup for the 26th annual festival. Early Bird and Super Fan badges go on sale today, Tuesday, October 24 at 10 a.m. PT, although fans are encouraged to act fast as supply is limited and pricing will increase in tiers. Individual tickets to these recently announced shows will also go on sale at 10 a.m. PT this Friday, October 27. Both badges and tickets can be purchased at
Noise Pop Festival is an annual celebration of independent culture in the Bay Area, which over the course of a week, from Monday, February 19 to Sunday, February 25, transforms the Bay Area into festival grounds with multiple events taking place across the city each night. This year badges will go further than ever before as access to the film screening events, which had required a separate badge or tickets previously, will be included with the overall Noise Pop badge, allowing attendees to pack in even more into their festival experience.
The first round of music artists confirmed to perform at the festival includes the female-led, live drum-looping indie-pop project, Tune-Yards, fronted by former Sunglass Theater puppeteer-turned-vocalist Merrill Garbus; New Jersey’s Real Estate, who will be performing in support of their recent album, In Mind; San Francisco’s own Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, who in September released the first single off of their highly anticipated upcoming album, Wrong Creatures, a return to the band’s original style of buzzing guitars and faded vocals; Texas-by-way-of-New York’s Parquet Courts, who also played to a sold-out crowd at Noise Pop 2016; and indie-pop inspired San Fermin, led by classically trained and appropriately named composer Ellis Ludwig-Leone, which just released their third album, Belong, to critical praise, and who will perform alongside another beloved Bay Area acts in The Magik*Magik Orchestra for a very rare collaborative performance.
Also joining the music with a strong dose of 90s indie rock revival is Superchunk, who helped shape the East Coast homegrown music scene of their native North Carolina; in addition to renowned acts like quirky California natives WHY?, who will perform in support of their critically acclaimed 2017 album, Moh Lhean, at Noise Pop 2018; Ben UFO, an accomplished DJ known for his work in cofounding the heralded electronic record label, Hessle Audio; experimental rocker Mount Eerie, who looks to perform in support of his eighth studio album, A Crow Looked At Me, that was released this past March; Geographer, the critically acclaimed indie rock project from San Francisco native Mike Deni; Bully, who managed to avoid the stereotypical ‘slump of the sophomore album’ with Losing, which was just released this month to acclaim from fans and critics alike; and Los Angeles-based Girlpool, who for the first time incorporated a drummer on their newest album, Powerplant, which was released in May to glowing reviews. Rounding out the first wave of announced music performances is Melbourne-born songwriter and electronic producer Carla Dal Forno, marking her first ever performance in the United States; among more than 40 total music acts.
Although the full music lineup will be announced in several phases between now and February, the list of initial music acts confirmed to perform at the 2018 festival can be found below.

For the 2017 festival, a limited amount of Early Bird badges are available for purchase today for $145. This year, the festival is introducing a new tiered pricing structure for general badges that will reward those who buy early. Prices will increase as each phase of the lineup is revealed.  Phase 1 general badges will be available for $175 once Early Bird badges are sold out. General badge prices will then go up with the Phase 2 lineup announcement.
All badges grant access to all general admission (non-seated) music concerts, badge-only happy hours, NPHQ and some very special events soon to be announced. Badges are non-transferrable with age-restrictions for some events, and badge-holders must arrive within 60 minutes after club door times to guarantee entrance. New benefits for badge-holders this year includes additional access to all of the film screenings and film-related events throughout the weeklong festival.
In addition, a limited number of Super Fan badges will also go on sale Tuesday, October 24 at 10 a.m. PT for $399 and will not be raised. Super Fan badge-holders will experience the true red carpet treatment at the festival, where they receive guaranteed entry to all festival events, a special merch package, complimentary drink tickets to select events, and a personal Noise Pop concierge available for assistance throughout the weeklong festival. For any badge related questions, contact Noise Pop directly at
Tickets to all individual festival performances currently announced will go on sale this Friday, October 27 at 10 a.m. PT. Brand new for Noise Pop Festival badge-holders, fans will now have the option of a specialized waitlist-service for sold-out shows in case they were unable to purchase tickets in time.
Additionally, Noise Pop Festival is proud to announce that world-renown artist ChiChiLand will create the official artwork for this year’s festival. Çiğdem “Chi” Michalski is an illustrator, artist and occasional art director in Seattle, who for the past decade was half of the creative duo running Istanbul’s beloved motion design studio – imago. Today, she focuses on art and illustration while continuing to create work in the field of animation and design. Noise Pop is thrilled to add her to the impressive list of notable artists who have partnered to create art for the fest, including Shepard Fairey and Thomas Campbell, among others.
Last year at the 25th annual event, Noise Pop Festival saw its highest attendance yet in the festival’s history with nearly 90% of the acts playing to sold-out crowds and all festival badges selling out in advance. In total, over 28,000 people attended the 2017 festival, which marked a more than 30% increase in attendance from the year prior in 2016, which again was a hallmark year for the annual festival. The 2017 festival played host to 180+ music artists across more than 17 Bay Area venues, with additional events including concerts, film screenings, art shows and more.
The lineup for the 25th anniversary last year again carried on the festival’s musical expansion by including genres of all types including hip-hop, indie rock, electronic, metal, and more. Among the artists with stellar sold-out performances were Ty Segall, Grandaddy, Vince Staples, Dawes, Julien Baker, BadBadNotGood, Deafheaven, Tash Sultana, PWR BTTM, Rogue Wave (presented Cover Me: A Night of 80s Classics), and Creeper Lagoon (who performed together on stage for the first time since 2001). Additional favorite highlights of the festival included sets by Japanese Breakfast, Diet Cig, Hazel English, Middle Kids, Hanni El Khatib, and many more. The 2017 festival also welcomed the return of the Noise Pop After Hours at Café du Nord presented by Jameson Music, where the celebration continued multiple nights of the festival with surprise sets from several beloved Bay Area acts, including Thao (of Thao & The Get Down Stay Down), Jay Som, and Con Brio, playing to a packed venue.
Stay tuned as additional music acts, as well as the film, art and event lineup will be announced in the months ahead.

BRMC announce new album Wrong Creatures, release first single “Little Thing Gone Wild” + North American tour dates!

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club announce their new forthcoming album Wrong Creatures, and release the first single “Little Thing Gone Wild” – Listen to the track here

Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Arcade Fire) and recorded at Sunset Sound. Wrong Creatures is available today for pre-sale in all digital music stores and directly through the band’s online store.

The new single “Little Thing Gone Wild” is available for purchase as an individual track and everyone who pre-orders the album will receive the song immediately. In addition to the CD & Digital album version, a limited edition vinyl deluxe boxset will also become available in the coming weeks for pre-order on the official website.

Recorded in Los Angeles over the past few years, the bands taken many unlikely twists and turns, yet always remaining focused on the music and returning again to edge of the stage. “It’s a crazy making machine, it can chew you up as fast as it spits you out. A few years back we literally toured till the wheels came off and Leah’s brain literally started leaking out of her head” say’s Been. “It catches up with you, i know i’ve battled on and off with my own depression, and Pete’s head never came with any proper instructions. So you just gotta keep pushing buttons to see what happens.”

Wrong Creatures returns to the core of BRMC’s alchemy, yet plunges the knife in even further. From the Cave-esque murder balladry of “Haunt” to the garage punk of “Little Thing Gone Wild,” it runs the gamut allowing the band to flex every muscle in their armor. They remain opaque about the songs’ greater meanings, fearful of past misunderstandings. “I find myself writing about death a lot,” says Hayes. “I find myself having a discussion with death, which sounds dark. For me, it’s dark humor.” Talking about mortality allows Hayes to explore life’s great mistakes and regrets. Channeling them through rolling riffs and dirge-laden rhythms that stir the pot before reaching boiling point.

Ultimately, the band may well be survivors of an era where rock’n’roll can often be overshadowed by dance pop, and garish commercialism. Robert Levon Been; “We are truly an island – come hell or high water, so it’s usually best to dress accordingly. Though i’m not sure what the proper attire is when drowning in fire. But leather usually goes with everything.”

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club also announced their North American tour which will be kicking off on January 15, 2018 with dates in Washington DC, Boston, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, and more.

BRMC’s end of tour Thank You

BRMC’s tour with Death From Above 1979 and Deap Vally ended in Boston on Saturday night and they left us with this photo from DigBoston and some parting words:

Thank you to everyone who came out strong and supported us on tour with our friends ‘Death From Above’ and ‘Deap Vally’. It was sad to say goodbye, but we’ve got a new record to finish tracking…

BRMC posted a video of their cover of “Chelsea Hotel No 2” by Leonard Cohen, who had passed away at 82. It was from The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD on Friday, November 11, 2016:

After the New York show on November 8th, BRMC also posted a brief commentary on the election:

Before taking the stage in New York on November 8th, tensions were high but still hopes were higher. We played as if there was no tomorrow, as we always do. When we walked off stage however, we found a country shattered and its people torn apart.

There are no adequate words right now, and even though life may appear to be going on as business as usual, beware of the normalization of this election in the days and months ahead. Right-wing movements are gaining unimagined momentum all over the globe, and we are now at the front lines.

Do not refill your prescriptions, do not tune out, do not move to Canada just yet, and don’t think it’s enough tweeting and re-posting all your thoughts/frustrations to friends and family.

This is real. We brought it on ourselves, it’s now our responsibility to oppose right-wing populist movements here and everywhere.
