Noise Pop 

When: Feb. 25-March 2 2014
The 22nd annual Noise Pop festival is now in full swing, which means the city is brimming with musical talent that demands your attention. As we mentioned last week, some of the highlights of this year’s event include the psychedelic reggae of Extra Classic (Thursday, Feb. 27 at Slim’s), the Eighties-influenced electronica of Com Truise (Thursday, Feb. 27 at Mezzanine), the icy-cold soul fusion of Kelela (Friday, Feb. 28 at 1015 Folsom), the gothic new wave of Cold Cave (Friday, Feb. 28 at Slim’s), the day-dreamy rock of Real Estate (Friday and Saturday, Feb. 28 and Mar. 1 at the Independent), and the engagingly sober songs of Mark Kozelek (Saturday, Mar. 1 at Great American Music Hall). Unlike many big festivals — which tend to attract those who are more interested in the experience than the bands on stage — Noise Pop remains focused on showcasing the music. And at a time when more and more musicians are being priced out of San Francisco, that mission feels particularly commendable.
