Noise Pop the Game ©®TM 

For the 14th installment of San Francisco's Noise Pop music festival, we bring you our third annual NOISE POP THE GAME©®TM, a fathomless well of entertainment that every frolicsome concertgoer can enjoy with the simple toss of a coin. Though once again our plans for the three-dimensional, animatronic, podcastable sequel to previous games proved impossible because of budgetary constraints, we are delighted to offer a game board of the finest quality newsprint the ad revenue from she-male escorts can buy. Let the good times roll!


To end the game with the most points and possibly get laid.


Two or more players.

One NOISE POP THE GAME©®TM game board.

One coin for flipping (a single die can be used for "lightning play").

One game piece per player (e.g., lighter, guitar pick, used condom, etc.).


1) Player with the most sideways haircut goes first.

2) On a turn, flip coin. If heads, move two spaces. If tails, move one space.

3) Collect or deduct the number of points indicated on game space. In the case of a multiple-choice question, choose answer and collect/deduct points accordingly.

4) When you reach the end, tally points and refer to adjacent "POINT GUIDE."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
