Next 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.

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.
