[Festival Preview] Noise Pop Festival 2016–SF, 2/19-2/28

np2016-admat_fullNoise Pop 2016 is quickly approaching, beginning this week, February 19th, and ending nine days later on February 28th. Following San Francisco’s anointment as Super Bowl City on January 30th, the city was the center of the American sports world for nearly 2 weeks. Now, as those ceremonies are winding down, excitement regarding a more local-grown type of entertainment will be ratcheting up. Noise Pop has outdone itself in 2016, bringing one of the boldest and most impressive lineups in its prestigious history.

[New] He’s My Brother She’s My Sister- Can’t See The Stars +Tour

Las Angeles folk/blues band He’s My Brother She’s My Sister have announced a special treat for fans who come out to their shows leading up to their SXSW date: a special preview of their new album. The two song set is said to feature the tracks “Can’t See The Stars” and “Let It Live Free” from their new LP and is only available to concert goers.

“Can’t See The Stars” is a musical nod to a past era. The percussive stomping and tambourine in the beginning accent the vocal lines while leaving just enough quiet space to cue the chorus in dramatically. The gang vocals make the song feel huge and the swinging rhythm of the vocal line grabs you and never quite lets go.

The band, named in reference to brother/sister vocalists, have been making a name for themselves through their energetic live show and relentless tour schedule. The SXSW tour dates are:

2.28.12 – San Diego, CA @ The Casbah
2.29.12 – Visalia, CA @ Cellar Door
3.01.12 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Echo
3.02.12 – Santa Barbara, CA @ SOHO
3.03.12 – San Francisco, CA @ Brick & Mortar Music Hall
3.04.12 – Santa Cruz, CA @ Moe’s Alley
3.06.12 – Portland, OR @ Doug Fir Lounge
