What the hell is a Noise Market you ask?
NOISE + Art Vendors = Noise Market.
The name "Noise Market" comes from a biannual event in Bangkok, Thailand in which artisans of all kinds descend on the grounds of Museum Siam in an old part of the Thai capital city. Many of the artisans of Noise Market are musical performers and they perform their set often next to thei merchandise table. The sound engineering team move the makeshift PA system to wherever the next band is playing. It's all DIY and no alcohol is allowed on site (some people found ways around this).
My Noise Market has taken a bit of a departure from Noise Market in Bangkok run by Wannarit Pongprayoon of Panda Records. But the spirit is there. I was at the first Noise Markets in Bangkok and they are legend. The distinguishing factor for this event is the inclusion of a production crew to document the Noise with video, photos and audio. And beer!
Whose gonna be there?
Aside from a bunch of unsigned yet terrific Denton rock bands including Wee-Beasties (certain to be my Mom's favorite) there are several visiting bands scheduled including Modular Sun and Naga Brujo from Austin, The Boleys from Florence TX, King Country from Waco and Bogan Villa out of San Marcos.
