NEW NOISE: Musicians pushing envelopes -- or maybe guitar cases is the more apt analogy here -- are at the forefront of the New Noise Music Foundation, a Santa Barbara-based group devoted to helping artists, and spreading music love, and helping performers help themselves. But it isn't just about the people on stage, but the people watching the people on stage. Translation? The New Noise Music Conference & Festival will boast concerts and gigs aplenty, all around the city.
NOV. 4-6, 2010: There are various lectures and off-stage events to look into, but we're betting that if you plan on going up for the night (or two), you'll want to know about shows. Get the full rundown, and read more about New Noise's year-round mission.
