Noise Pop Festival 2011

It’s that time of the year again! The people who made Treasure Island possible have more tricks up their sleeves. This year’s Noise Pop Festival, running from Feb. 22 to 27, is packed with over 40 films, art exhibits and concerts throughout the Bay Area. Surely, there is no shortage of fun during this week long festival. In fact, it’s almost too difficult to decide which events to attend.

Since 1993, Noise Pop Festival has helped up-and-coming bands like The Flaming Lips, Death Cab for Cutie and the White Stripes gain exposure. This year’s festival stars Aesop Rock, Yo La Tengo, Wavves, Ben Gibbard, and dozens of other indie bands on the verge of stardom. Haven’t heard of some of the bands in the lineup? Bay Bridged and KQED have Noise Pop Festival podcasts. Be the first to discover “the next big thing”.

No need to feel overwhelmed by all the back-to-back events. SFist provides Noise Pop fans with a day by day festival planner, providing thorough information about each event’s time, place and what to expect.  SF Gate highlights some of the festival’s events and lists when and where to see them. Aside from the dozens of concerts, SF Weekly lists this year’s featured films, which star musicians like Feist, Devendra Banhart and The Black Lips. Yet, none these articles map out where the venues are located, making it difficult for eager fans to map out their weekly festivities.  For a complete map of Noise Pop Festival locations, check out this Google map below.
