Bring da Noise, Bring da Indie Rock
So, for those about to rock, we salute you. And both Yelp and Noise Pop would like to salute you by giving you a free sampler CD from this year's festival. Yelp was 2006's media sponsor, and as some yelpers noticed, they gave us the back of their CD sleeve for us to yelp at you with. That was awfully nice of them, eh? So, if you decide to head out to any of the shows be sure and snag one before they're gone. Best of all they're free and have some kickass tunes on them from Feist, Calexico and John Vanderslice to name a few...
Did you realize that the official festival kicked off on Monday at Bimbos 365 Club with a rollicking performance by the Flaming Lips? Wayne Coyne and company rocked the velvety club with their unique sound and crazy antics such as confetti and giant balloons for the crowd. What a perfect way to kick off the week. But it's far from over! Take a peek at their schedule to see other bands like The National, Heavenly States, Kid Koala, We Are Scientists and Britt Daniel of Spoon that you may want to check out.
At Yelp we all love our music and we're just happy to be a part of all this. Head out this week, see some shows, shove your fists in the air and tell 'em Yelp sent you.
