    Default noisepop festival in san fran 08

    The Noise Pop Festival returns in 2008 from February 26 to March 2. Over six nights, Noise Pop 16 will take over the best-loved venues in San Francisco, to host unforgettable performances by Magnetic Fields, The Mountain Goats, The Gutter Twins, Cursive and dozens of other important indie rock, electronic, punk and cutting edge musical artists, transforming the city into an almost week-long celebration of the finest that the underground and not-so-underground has to offer, nationally and locally.

    2007 marked Noise Popís 15th year as San Franciscoís premier celebration of independent music, art, film and culture and 2008 is the festivalís sweet 16 party. Established in San Francisco in 1993, Noise Pop started as a one-night event featuring the best underground rock bands that the Bay Area could dish up. Flash forward to 2007 and the Noise Pop Festival is another beast entirely. With live music as itís focal point, Noise Pop has developed into full-scale cultural happening, adding gallery art shows, a music-themed film festival, educational panel discussions with musicians and music industry professionals, an indie designer trunk sale and a number of planned as well as spontaneous shin-digs.

    This sounds amazing! But tickets are already sold out for most of the shows, and Im somewhat confused on how to get tickets for others
    Has anyone been to this before and is anyone going?

    I don't know what you're talking about. Tickets aren't even on sale yet.

    edit* Tickets aren't on sale yet for the Mountain Goats. Which is what matters here. Brad just said Magnetic Fields is probably sold out.

    On the noisepop festival website, it says that Cake, Ted Leo, and a couple other shows are sold out, but that just means their not on sale yet?

    They probably won't update the website for a while.

    If you are going to go probably your best bet is the badge.

    It has the following features:

    Admission to the shows
    Admission to the Events
    Admisison to the party

    And I think some other features.

    It's easier than buying individual admissions.

    All of those dates on the noise pop site are from last year, only a couple of bands have been confirmed.

    Ghostland is playing in sf tonight but it has nothing to do with Noise Pop.

    Pollstar is listing Ghostland playing Noise pop again next year but that's more than likely a mistake.

    It lists Ghostland on 3/3/2008 when the Noise Pop in 2008 is is 2/26 to 3/2.

    Maybe they are playing again...

    I loved noisepop. I use to live in SF and I went to like 2 or 3 shows a night during noisepop. I recommend everyone go!

    It's obvious that the dates are not for next year's noisepop.

    Just Noisepop and Pollstar haven't updated their sites.

    And one guy got confused, what's the big deal?

    Sounds like a fantastic line-up so far. What do you suggest when buying tickets to this? Do you have to buy individual tickets to the different venues or do they have package deals?

    Last year they had an all access badge. Hopefully they will do that again. I have never gone to this but I really want to go this year so far!

    They always have an all access badge. The badge pretty much doesn't pay for itself unless you go to the kickoff party and one show a night and one of the day shows on the weekend.

    www.ticketweb.com = bimbos, bottom of the hill, independent, i think rickshaw stop, mezzanine, cafe du nord, swedish hall
    www.livenation.com = fillmore, warfield, herbst
    www.tickets.com = gamh, slim's
    www.slimstickets.com = slim's, cheaper better
    www.gamhtickets.com = gamh, cheaper better

    How much was the badge last year?

    And does it guarantee admission?

    And what happened at the kick off party?

    badges are $175 this year, and you have to choose which of the two Magnetic Fields shows you want to go to.

    the badge guarantees admission to all shows (except Magnetic Fields this year, thus why you get a free ticket with the purchase of the badge) as long as you show up early enough. if it's a sold out show, and you want in with your badge, show up before or as doors are opening. you'll be turned away if you try to time it to see a headliner with your badge if it's at capacity already.
