CONTEST: Win Tickets to the Noise Pop Culture Club (Featuring Kid Koala, No Age, Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and More)!

This is a picture of Nick Zinner and friends performing selections from their book Please Take Me Off The Guest List at the Uptown in Oakland last year. It was badass. Nick and the girl play trippy music while the other guy reads snarky hipster poetry. But it’s good snarky hipster poetry. Lucky for you, they’re coming back to reprise their performance at the Noise Pop Culture Club on February 26th. And we’re giving away a pair of free tickets.

Noise Pop describes its flagship event in full:

The Noise Pop Culture Club takes the Noise Pop experience and brings it all into one location over two very special days. The Culture Club brings together creative individuals from the community and beyond to participate in a series of exciting presentations on independent culture in its many forms. In addition to the talks there are plenty of hands on experiences and opportunities for participants to delve into their personal creativity. Pop ā€˜nā€™ Shop, our local designer fair, will also be a part of this very special weekend.

Confirmed Speakers and organizations include:
Kid Koala, No Age, Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), DJ Nickodemus, John Wesley Harding, Flavorpill, Isotope Comics, Cinemasports, The Masses, Rebar, Jason Jagel, Yak Films, Turf Feinz and many more.

Alright! For a full schedule and tickets see here.

To WIN a pair of tickets, leave a comment below explaining why you will benefit from the Culture Club’s workshop-style format more than anyone else. We’ll pick a winner based on merit by Friday at noon.

And if you’re still having trouble getting excited about the festival, The Bay Bridged recently published a pair of kickass mixtapes to help get you in the mood.

    I deserve them because I have never been to an event like this.

    I deserve them because everything I loathe will be in one location.

  3. Jenny says:

    I deserve the tickets because I promise to share and report what I learn with my friends and network. Also, I’d like to get more involved in the local DIY/arts scene as a fan/baby artist and I really think this format will motivate me and hopefully help me be more rad.

  4. Nico says:

    We will all benefit from the Culture Club’s workshop-style format in so many ways. Nothing is more empowering than learning how to do something yourself. I’m a screen printer, and I teach workshops on how to print T-shirts. The instant gratification of someone coming in to learn how to do something they’ve never done before (or thought they would probably never do) and seeing the pure ecstatic joy after they print their first t-shirt is beyond words. The same goes for learning how to do anything. Knowledge is power.

  5. I deserve them because I have narcolepsy and the last time I saw Nick Zinner I fell asleep in the front row. But this time I promise to nonchalantly do a bunch of drugs first and then nod ironically while drinking PBR after PBR.

    I deserve to win because I may or may not be dying.
