LAist On Location: Noise Pop Fest 2010 Day Two
A day late and several dollars short, we are nonetheless thrilled to bring you our exciting account of day two at Noise Pop Fest in lovely San Francisco. And how was it? We're looking for a word that combines "mildly interested" with "nepotism". The festival remains fantastic, overall, but on day two (that's Wednesday, Feb. 24, for those of you paying attention) we chose our shows somewhat unwisely and saw not 1, but two children of musical legends, and a garage band so authentic they're more like historical reenactors than musicians.
First up we went to the lovely Independent Theater, where we saw Petra Haden's new collabo with Yuka Honda, If By Yes, and one of Sean Lennon's new projects, Consortium Musicum. After that, it was off to Cafe Du Nord to see Harlem.
