When I started this blog, I set out to write primarily about food and music. Several years passed, the interests that inspired me tended to change, and, well, I started writing about anything I felt like writing about. Leave it to Noise Pop to create an event that brings me back to my focus. Noisette, which was held at Public Works in San Francisco last Saturday, was an event dedicated to sampling food prepared by some of the city’s finest chefs while listening to great music. Really, who could ask for more? For the price of the regular admission, you were given a punch card to sample nine dishes, all while listening to music or drinking to your heart’s content.
Unfortunately, my arrival to San Francisco was slightly delayed so my partner in crime and I did not make it to the event until about an hour into the event. For the food, this wasn’t a problem as the plates were being served throughout the event. We did miss the first performance, however.
I never feel as much like a hipster as I do when I go to a Noise Pop event. After a year’s absence from the festival, I needed my fix again. Granted, by the time I got my act together for tickets not only were the tickets I wanted all sold out, but the tickets of the bands that seemed enjoyable were also sold out. It all worked out, however, because Mia managed to snag tickets to the Culture Club through her internship. Not having been to Culture Club before, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was kind of like Chuck E Cheese for hipsters. I’ve never felt more like a hipster than I did on Saturday. That being said, I also had a lot of fun.
This is going to be a long picture filled post, so I’ll cut…
