  • Not bad for a Monday night: Ben Gibbard will play the Swedish American Hall Feb. 23.

Yes, the Death Cab for Cutie frontman will be bringing his plaintive voice and self-deprecating wordplay to the newly reopened Swedish American Hall, aka Noise Pop headquarters, this Monday, Feb. 23 at 8 p.m. to help kick off the 2015 festival, which brings more than 80 music and film events to Bay Area venues for the next week and a half. 

He'll no doubt be playing songs from his 2012 solo record, Former Lives, as well as hopefully giving us some more previews of the forthcoming Death Cab album, Kintsugi (check out the first single below).
With him will be Rogue Wave's Zach Rogue, who will also be performing some solo material. Tickets go on sale today at 11 a.m. — get that clicking finger ready. And for more under-the-radar (and not sold out!) Noise Pop happenings, check out this week's paper. See ya around town, rock 'n' rollers.

  • 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.'"
