Noise Pop Announces Free Foodie Block Party With Two Gallants and Mac DeMarco

  • 20th and Florida, the epicenter of next month's block party.

So Noise Pop is doing another food- and music-pairing party this year (anyone remember Noisette last year?) but with a few twists: This time it'll be an outdoor block party on 20th Street; the bands performing are Two Gallants, Mac DeMarco, and Quinn Deveaux (so far); and, most importantly, it's free.

Well, sort of: We don't expect the high-end food retailers on hand -- Flour + Water, Blowfish, the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, Central Kitchen, and many more -- to give away free food. That'd just cause a riot. But entry won't cost you a thing. So while you're enjoying the aggro-roots-rock of Two Gallants, or the surfy mischief of Mac DeMarco, or the smooth blues of Quinn DeVeaux, you may presumably have cash left over for primo grub.

The family-friendly block party takes place Aug. 24 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on 20th Street between Bryant and Harrison, and Florida Street between 19th and 20th. Sounds like this could be a fun new addition to the city's admittedly crowded music and food festival calendar.

  • 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.'"
