Noise Pop-Up Shop

This year we are opening a Pop Up Shop in The Bold Italic Headquarters at 34 Page Street. With the help of several key partners, we are turning the space into a veritable den of wonder. Nearly every night will have a different partner, who will each bring their own unique programming: graffEats is offering up a Valentine's Day dinner that pairs food, drink, music and film together. Mission Mission will bring two nights of Berlin style ping pong, American Tripps. Our House Records are hosting a brunch show that revolves around electronic beats and delicious bloody marys. Kata Rokkar will host the comedy and music variety show, Snob Theater. And SF Weekly and Ears of the Beholder are both hosting Happy Hours with special musical performances. For the full schedule, visit the Noise Pop-Up page.

Opening night party on February 2nd—come out, see the space and then go home and cancel all of your evening plans in February.

Noise Pop-Up Shop is presented by Stoli.
