A limited amount of Early Bird badges are on sale NOW for $125. Regular badges are $150 and will go on sale Monday, December 17th, 2012 at 10:00 am PST or once Early Bird badges are sold out. Badges grant access to all general admission (non-seated) concerts, films, happy hours, Culture Club and other events during the festival. Individual tickets and Film Badges will go on sale at 10:00 am PST on Wednesday December 19th, 2012.
The Noise Pop Film Series will feature “Turning,” a film by Charles Atlas and Antony Hegarty, which showcases the indelible music of Antony and the Johnsons in a film celebrating 13 women taking the stage, who, like Antony himself, are not easily categorized personas. Their stories combine with Antony’s mesmerizingly emotional songs to create a powerful journey of struggle and hope. The film series will also include “What Did You Expect? The Archer’s of Loaf Live at Cat’s Cradle,” directed by Gorman Bechard, which stars indie rock icons, Archers of Loaf, during their 2011 reunion tour. Combining in-your-face concert footage along with rare interviews of the band, this film documents those concerts, and captures the excitement and explosive energy of their live shows.
In addition to the films, Culture Club and Noise Pop’s beloved Noise Pop-Up Shop will also be returning next year. More details to come!
