Noise Pop 2014: Free Opening Night Party
Celebrate Noise Pop’s Opening Night with the world premiere of Punk Rock Fancy featuring DJ sets by Bob Mould, Shepard Fairey and Jello Biafra at the Noise Pop headquarters at The NWBLK.
Bob Mould’s career spans decades—from his pioneering early ’80s work with Hüsker Dü to his solo work in singer-songwriter, electronic, and rock modes, to the deafening pop sparkle of Sugar. His latest album Silver Age is an “ aggressive pop record” that careens out of the speakers with a sense of exhilaration that reflects the excitement with which Bob and his live band of bassist Jason Narducy (Spl:t S:ngle, Verbow) and drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk, the Mountain Goats) cranked out the record in a tight whirlwind of a window from in early 2012.
Shepard Fairey is an American contemporary street artist, graphic designer activist and illustrator who emerged from the skateboarding scene. He became widely known during the 2008 U.S. presidential election for his Barack Obama “Hope” poster.
Jello Biafra is the former lead singer and songwriter for San Francisco punk rock band Dead Kennedys, and is currently a musician and spoken word artist.
