Noise Pop 2013: Who Are These Bands?

Local artists aside, the Noise Pop lineup is a bit of a head-scratcher this year. I’ve had a lot of friends ask me, “Who the hell are these bands?” (Like it’s my job to know.)

I’m working on a preview of which artists to catch, and using handy playlists to familiarize myself with some of the bands. Listen to the Rdio and KQED playlists below.

Local literary magazine The Rumpus recently published an Albums of Our Lives feature on The Thermals’ The Body The Blood The Machine, a great read whether or not you’re familiar with the band. The Portland trio plays Noise Pop on Friday, March 1 at Rickshaw Stop. 8:30 p.m., $15.
