SAN FRANCISCO, CA (February 6, 2018) – The 26th annual Noise Pop Music & Arts Festival is excited to release the details for this year’s Opening Night Fueled by Lagunitas at Swedish American Hall on Monday, February 19, along with details for Deep Eddy Noise Pop After Hours, the annual late-night, after-hours festivities presented by Deep Eddy Vodka, taking place on Friday and Saturday, February 23 and 24, at a brand new location—Light Rail Studios.
The Noise Pop Festival Opening Night, fueled by Lagunitas, will feature a very rare performance by beloved San Francisco rock duo The Dodos playing their critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite album Visiter in celebration of its 10 year anniversary, released on Frenchkiss Records in early 2008.

Those interested in attending can purchase a festival badge today online at noisepopfest.com.
In keeping with Noise Pop tradition, the festival will offer several intimate, late-night performances from notable surprise music acts. Presented by Deep Eddy Vodka, the after-hours festivities this year will take place at Light Rail Studios (672 Toland Place, San Francisco, CA 94124) on Friday and Saturday, February 23 and 24. The “Deep Eddy Noise Pop After Hours” will feature a variety of acclaimed music acts, all of which will remain a surprise until the day of the show. Previous performers include some of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most beloved musicians and songwriters, like Jay Som, Hamilton Leithauser (of The Walkmen), Thao Nguyen (of Thao & the Get Down Stay Down), Geographer, and Cathedrals, among others.
