The 6th Annual NEW NOISE MUSIC FESTIVAL & CONFERENCE takes over Santa Barbara this week October 15 thru 19. Our mini-SXSW by the sea is primed and ready for it's best year ever with a lineup for the ages. We gots showcases with bands on the verge of going supernova at various venues throughout the city.
The Story So Far, Dawes, Nick Waterhouse, Joyce Manor, Cloud Nothings, Plague Vendor, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Beat Connection and 50+ others...all for your pleasure. The crown jewel of the fest is the New Noise Block Party where a couple city blocks, a stones throw from the beach, in SB's Funk Zone becomes a festive communal celebration of the arts with live music, food vendors, art installations, beer/wine garden, music biz panels (featuring Warped Tour guru Kevin Lyman) and boundless posi vibes. Nashville indie electro-party-pop duo CHERUB close the festivities. For the full lineup and tickets check out our show listings or go to
