Noise Pop week is once again upon us, and Rickshaw Stop talent buyer Dan Strachota has a secret he just can't keep under wraps any longer: a free, all-ages show Wednesday night by “two big-name NYC noise pop bands” (though one is originally from Atlanta).
One of those bands happens to be Deerhunter; the other, on their maiden SF voyage, is The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. As Strachota gushes, The Pains sound like “killer early MBV/JAMC fuzz,” and if those acronyms mean anything to you, you'll want in on this secret.
The show is being presented to fans gratis by MySpace, and as Strachota notes, tickets will be given away on a first come, first served basis. That means get there early, and be prepared to wait in line for a few hours.
