Local Bands Slated for Debut Treasure Island Music Festival



Expanding on its indie-rock monarchy in the Bay Area, Noise Pop has teamed up with Berkeley promoter Another Planet Entertainment for the first ever Treasure Island Music Festival on September 15 and 16. The outdoor festival promises to rank among the Bay Area's top music events, and will feature 28 acts including Modest Mouse, Thievery Corporation, Spoon, Gotan Project, DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, Built to Spill, M.I.A., Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and others. And in true NP tradition, local talent will also be represented: Two Gallants, Honeycut, Film School, Street to Nowhere (managed by NP's Jordan Kurland), and Trainwreck Riders. The festival will also include a "vending village" with local artists and designers. Single-day tickets cost $58.50, two-day tickets cost $110. Click here for more information.
