Better than: Blown speakers.

A slate of marquee shows filled San Francisco venues Thursday night, with Built to Spill, Sleigh Bells, Budos Band, and locals Thao and John Vanderslice selling out their respective venues. But never fear, Noise Pop nerds, because each day of the festival brings an embarrassment of musical riches. While many San Franciscans patronized the bigger names, some probably mortgaging themselves into Stubhub tickets, one of San Francisco's best-loved club nights hosted Big Black Delta, an up-and-coming Los Angeles talent taken with big beats and buzzsaw hooks.
