Tickets available here!
I can still feel the thrum in my chest from the heavy hitting vibe of the PJ Harvey show I saw at the Great American Music Hall years back. Good news for fans in San Francisco -- not only is PJ releasing a new album, Let England Shake, on Feb 15, she's also just announced a very exclusive date here in our fair city, April 14 at the Warfield! (It's then just a hop, skip and a jump down our lovely state to her next stop at Coachella -- her only other show in the US!)
Tickets for the April 14 show go on sale this Sunday and are sure to sell out in a virtual snap. Catch 'er while you can!
Beyond the live music lineup, Noise Pop 2011 boasts a great line up of film screenings and related events this year!
First will be the world premiere of This is Noise Pop on Feb 23, a documentary about indie rock via bands' Noise Pop appearances, followed by a Q&A with the director, editor and Noise Pop glitterati.
Also screening is a documentary about the ever-popular Jose Gonzalez called The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of Jose Gonzalez on Feb 23 and Look at What the Light Did Now, a film about Feist on Feb 24. Little Wings, the original author of the song "Look at What the Light Did Now," will perform after that film.
The much-anticipatedFamily Jams, a film by Kevin Barker about the 2004 tour of (formerly) San Francisco's own Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom and Vetiver will also screen on Febuary 24.
This is a "holy shit" kind of announcement": Seems one Jeff Mangum, of such brain busting works as Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, a man who has been pretty much homebound for the past 10+ years, will be playing ATP this year in Asbury Park! According to friend Ben Goldberg, he is considering many more shows both in the US and Europe in the fall! Can I get a hallelujah?
