Our office recently moved about a block away from AT&T Park, so Giants season has taken on a whole new meaning. Soon, the sidewalks outside will be filled with gleeful (and possibly drunk) baseball fans skipping work to heckle visiting teams and scream the words to "Don't Stop Believing" in support of our beloved boys in black and orange.
Noise Pop could only look as far as its own backyard to get exactly what it wants: Raucous bands willing to cut it up on stage, kick over equipment and dominate with equal doses of feedback and catchy hooks. A ton of shows are sold out, but there are still radical shows going down that you won't have to pay an arm and a leg for via Craigslist (Imperial Teen, Thao, John Vanderslice and Two Gallants, we're lookin' at you).
