Noise Pop announced today that it's partnering with Blasthaus to add an electronic music element to its popular spring festival. Headlining Electropop acts include WALE and MSTRKRFT, with more ACTS IN ALL CAPS to come. More below:

Noise Pop and Blasthaus are also proud to present Electropop. This dynamic new chapter in the festival focuses on musicians and artists using electronic mediums. Electropop will run Friday, February 29th and Saturday March 1st, 2008, and feature two exhilarating nights of music and new media art manifested at Mighty.

Headlining Friday night at Electropop will be D.C. electro-rap phenomenon WALE (pronounced wah-ley), who blends hip hop with classic D.C. go-go music stylings. Saturday night will feature electro/rock hybrid MSTRKRFT. The duo of JFK and ALP have been breaking down the musical boundaries between punk, electro, disco, and more since their work with rock project, Death From Above 1979. And along with the musical portion of the festival, the two-night showcase will include interactive art installations by Bay Area new media artists along with blasthaus' low-tech gaming initiative BOLT (Bureau of Low Technology).

  • 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.'"
