TSOOL

Sweden's supreme masters of epic riff rock, baffling psychobable, and expertly executed Rock Moves, The Soundtrack of Our Lives are heading back to the United States in February -- including a stop at The Filmore at Irving Plaza on 2/16. Tickets are on sale. On February 27th they have a San Francisco show that is part of the 2010 Noise Pop Festival...

Event Producers, Noise Pop Industries, have announced the dates of the West Coast's premiere celebration of independent music, film and art - Noise Pop 2010. The 18th annual Noise Pop Festival will take place February 23rd through March 1, 2009 at venues throughout San Francisco, CA.

Early artist confirmations include Magnetic Fields, Mark Kozelek, Rogue Wave, Atlas Sound, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Four Tet, John Vanderslice, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Wallpaper, Zee Avi, The Limousines & Foreign Born. More shows will be announced in the coming weeks along with films, art shows, and more.
TSOOL's most recent album, the double CD Communion, came out way back in January and has held up extremely well over the last 12 months. It's well worth seeking out if you haven't yet. And the band remain a live force to be reckoned with -- their show at Music Hall of Williamsburg last March was one of my favorites of 2009.

Behind the Music is hard to beat but the new album is great...if it cut a few songs it would be unstoppable!

why does Noise Pop have to be in San Francisco? and isn't that strange? I haven't been there in over 10 years, but I don't associate noise pop when I think of that city.

This band is terrible. Saw them open for the Crowes in 2005 and it was painful.

11:47 you must be mixed up? Crowes are terrible....I am sure it was a hazy night as the reefer is usually flowing at a crowes show.

Crowes are terrible? Says the fan of this band. LOL. Nice credibility, slick.

12:08 Last good things crowes released was Amorica..I saw them a bunch of times through the years and they got progressively worse. If that effects my cridbility then so be it. Let me hear about your credibilty slickster?
