Noise Pop sprang to life in 1993. It was originally a single night in a small club showcasing the best of the burgeoning underground San Francisco music scene. It has since developed into one of the country’s leading independent music festivals, achieving grassroots and critical success, as well as international recognition. Noise Pop maintains a reputation for launching many small bands’ successful careers, including some of the most inﬂuential artists of the last twenty-one years, such as The White Stripes, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, and The Shins.
