the song Demon Dance is so damn catchy. It’s exhausting to be too cool

The Church// The Chapel
Thursday February 26th @ 7pm
Bands. New Bands. New Bands. Children, it's a plethora of new bands at
Noisepop. Bff.fm holds true to the fact that we dig and break the best
new jams. But Lo!, the foundations of all these musical tendrils
intertwining in the night go back to some solid footwork laid down by
groups like The Church. Why, you might ask, should you go see a band
who came to the future via the Hyper - V time craft? Foxx will give you
three: 1. Groove to the serpentine sounds and look over to your left,
that certain someone is giving you the eye because The Church makes you
look sexy. 2. You become smarter. Literally, your brain increases the
neural connections when you listen to The Church. 3. They're
Australian. Admit it you want to be Australian. Head for the Chapel. Foxx out."

Six Organs of Admittance with Elisa Ambrogio// Bottom of the Hill
Thursday February 26th @ 7:30pm
"Because GUITARRRS. And they both rule."
DJ Ben of Cracked Machine recommends...
Dan Deacon// The Chapel
Saturday February 28 @ 8pm
"Few contemporary artists can pull a crowd's head out of their own ass -
and out of the usual rock n' roll show routine - like Dan Deacon. His
bizarrely charismatic music and stage show will leave the most jaded
crowd members dripping with sweat and enthusiasm as they perform in
Deacon's own full-dance-floor version of Simon Says. The Chapel is a
great venue and Deacon's antics will make for a great time and legendary
Noise Pop show."

Caribou// The Fillmore
Sunday March 01 @ 8pm
"Caribou's 2014 album, Our Love, topped many year-end 'best of' lists. And when Dan Snaith, the man behind Caribou, plays at the Fillmore on March 1st,
he'll be playing with a full band and most importantly, two drum sets.
Live, the vibrant and repetitive electronic music Caribou produces often
hits shamanistic crescendos and boy am I excited to see them play this
album again. (I'm excited to dance all night.)"And don't forget Noise Pop features a variety of great films as well!

more info/buy tickets
"I am co-presenting a GREAT music doc about V-66, the first INDEPENDENT Music Video TV Station that went on
the air in Boston in 1985. If you love the 80's New Wave
era this is a must see. The director and I will be
doing a Q&A afterwards. And YES, it is on the same night as some
great music too (including Flight Facilities!)"
