Hooray! Noise Pop starts today with a kick off party at Alamo Draft House. Arguably the coolest part about the annual festival, however, is its cadre of local bands/musicians. You'd think more music festivals would take advantage of local talent, but a lot of them don't. Noise Pop is the exception. 

In addition to big-names like Vince Staples, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Kamasi Washington, this year's festivities will also include a cornucopia of Bay Area acts. Below, we've rounded up a list of 40 of the best, but you can check out the full line-up here

  • 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.'"
