The Noise Pop pre-party kick off event was last night at the Academy of Science. Were you there?

This year I am covering Noise Pop with a press pass. (LEGIT) The Pre-Party was my first event, and they had a special entrance for the press. (TOO COOL) There was no line and we got to cross a fancy, softly lit people bridge behind The Academy of Science … this was pretty cool!

I’ve been to Night Life before. I’ve learned that every time I tell people I was at The Academy of Science they always ask, “did you see the butterflies? Did you see the white alligator?” So I made sure I did exactly that … but I also snapped the above photo and socialized with a handful of music industry professionals in order to cover all of my bases.

The event was fun, but admittedly it wasn’t as “NOISE POP’N” as it has been in the past. The DJ sets were nice, but performances from previous years bands have been way more exciting!!! Also … there were probably Noise Pop employees at Night Life, but I didn’t see them … there were no Noise Pop schedules, schwag or hype for the upcoming week. Which is unfortunate … because this week is going to be AMAZING!!!

However … I did discover one company that made it all worthwhile. A company called Trash Amps, which makes speakers from mason jars, and other trash. They’re pretty legit … check them out!!!
