LAist On Location: Noise Pop Fest 2010 Day Five (Part 1)
Yes, that's part ONE, because for the final segment of our thrilling account of Noise Pop Fest 2010, we've not one, but two exciting adventures to share with you, o dear readers. Saturday, February 27th found us first at Pop n' Shop, a Noise Pop sponsored boutique seller and craft fair, similar in spirit, if not in scope, to our own twice-yearly Unique La. Held at the very old school Verdi Club, SF based artists, clothiers, jewelers and toy/doll makers turned out in force to ply their goods. Later that night, we hit the Mezzanine, where we saw a concert of mind blowing brilliance.
We'll get to the concert in the next Noise Pop related post. First up, Pop n' Shop, where we spent a little too much of our hard earned $$ on some wonderful wares.
