Win free passes to San Francisco's Noise Pop 2013 music and arts festival!

NoiseeeeNext Tuesday, February 26, marks the start of Noise Pop 2013, the 21-year-old San Francisco festival celebrating indie music, arts, and film across more than a dozen venues in the city. Wanna go? The musical lineup alone is marvelous, including the likes of Body/Head (Kim Gordon's new noise duo), The Fresh & Onlys, Toro Y Moi, Starfucker, Amon Tobin, Califone (video above), Yacht, Sonny & The Sunsets, Caspian, and many, many more. There are also excellent movies -- like "See A Little Light" about Bob Mould, "Punk in Africa," "Bad Brains: A Band in DC," -- art shows, talks, and panel discussions over the course of the festival, which runs until March 3.

Our pals at Noise Pop have kindly given us a pair of Noise Pop 2013 Badges that will get you into all general admission (non-seated) concerts, films, happy hours, the Culture Club day of workshops and creative sessions, and other events during the festival. The badges are $150 each but you can win a pair of them right here. All you have to do is pretend that NOISE POP is an acronym and tell us what it's an acronym for. Post your entry in the comments below before 11:00 AM PST tomorrow, Thursday February 21. We'll pick our favorite and announce the winner tomorrow! (Please only enter if you really would attend.) Good luck and hope to see you at Noise Pop 2013!


  1. Nascent Original Iconoclastic Sonic Expression- Past or Present 

    Nascent- Not yet fully formed
    Iconoclastic – Radical

  2. Norbert’s Only Invention Since Entropy:  Predictive Orgonic Popsicles

    Sadly if you pick me I can only come opening night or give them away.  But it was too much fun not to play.

  3. Nothing Overly Incensed Sounds Entirely Passionless On Pins (& Needles).
    It should probably win or lose without the parentheses but could not help myself.

  4. I don’t see a limit for how many times you can enter, so I’m just gonna go for it until someone tells me to stop…

    New Orleans Is Somethin’ Else. Put On Pants.
