Come August, it won't just be Outside Lands owning the food-and-music festival scene. Noise Pop—the indie music factory that has already started to bring edible elements into its events in a big way—will throw its first "culinary concert block party," dubbed Noisette. A live concert with chef-driven barbecued food options, it will take place at
Speakeasy Brewery Public Works on August 4th, and they've finalized a solid line-up of local talent: Adam Dulye of The Monk's Kettle and Abbots Cellar, Jason Fox of Commonwealth, Dennis Lee of Namu Gaji, Ian Marks of Beast and the Hare, Ryan Pollnow of flour + water, Mike Selvera of Bar Crudo, Arthur Wall of Garcon!, Blair Warsham of graffEats, and Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous ice cream for dessert. $60 general admission tickets include a taste from each chef along with all of the afternoon's live performances on the outdoor stage.
Bands at this point include The Dodos, Pillowfight - featuring Dan the Automator, Emily Wells and Kid Koala, Craft Spells and Taken by Trees with more possibly on the way.
Speakeasy will host a cash bar on site. Consider it your local spinoff of the Summer BBQ Blowout Festival Noise Pop-affiliate Finger on the Pulse has been throwing in Brooklyn for a few years now. For a taste, check this video of last year's event in New York. A limited number of $50 Early Bird tickets were just released for the SF event this afternoon.
