The Noise Pop Smorgasbord has Nearly Everything You’ve Ever Wanted

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Noise Pop Smorgasbord

Well it’s that time of year again. The Noise Pop Festival is celebrating its 25th year (holy smokes!) and because of that they’ve added one last really cool FREE event to the lineup, the Sunday Smorgasbord. And even to my cranky jaded self it sounds pretty fucking cool. Here’s the rundown they sent me:


On Sunday, February 26, Noise Pop Music & Arts Festival will bring the Sunday Smorgasbord to Swedish American Hall, an afternoon of music-themed culture programming free with RSVP. The festivities will kick off at 12:00 a.m. Things people will get to experience:

– Showga, which is yoga set to live music, presented by Sparkling Ice!

– The MailChimp Brunch Time Happy Hour will run from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and will treat fans to a complimentary beverage from The Bon Vivants.

– Afterwards, watch a live recording of the Noise Pop Podcast, which will be immediately followed by

Litquake: I Thought It Sucked, where all-star Bay Area musicians, writers, and performers present dramatic readings of one-star reviews that trash the world’s most treasured music masterpieces.

– Music-lovers can comb through the vinyl of the 1-2-3-4 GO! Pop-Up Vinyl Store or take a trip through musical history with a collection of images from photographer and album artist John Scarpati.

The full schedule for the day can be viewed here.

Have fun my lovely brokesters.
