FULL CALENDAR COMING THIS SUMMER

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (May 11, 2017) – Noise Pop Industries is proud to announce the return of Café du Nord as a music venue, in collaboration with Swedish American Hall owner Dylan MacNiven (Woodhouse Fish Company and West of Pecos).  The Summer calendar kicks off with a relaunch party June 1 featuring Rogue Wave, and Bay Area music fans can expect a full slate of live music, DJ nights, comedy and more in the months ahead.

Café du Nord has a long history as a popular venue and beloved landmark for Bay Area music fans. Noise Pop is working to restore that heritage and light up the room with cheering patrons once again. The subterranean room will complement the programming Noise Pop has been presenting upstairs at the Swedish American Hall since 2015, and cement the historic building’s role as a hub for the local music and arts community.

“With so many challenges facing the Bay Area arts community, we are happy to help restore an amazing piece of its musical landscape. So many fond memories have been created at Café du Nord and the Swedish, and we hope to inspire many more in the future
,

​ ​
says
 Kevin Arnold, Founder of Noise Pop.

Shows are already underway at the venue, with a full slate of programming kicking off in June. Some renovations have been made to accommodate live music in the room and continued improvements will happen over the next year. Currently scheduled performers include (in chronological order): Emel Mathlouthi, LA Takedown, Rogue Wave, VHS Collection, Nina Diaz, Bombadil, Avi Buffalo, Fictionist, Slow Dancer, My Jerusalem, Roselit Bone, Meatbodies, Goon, Turtlenecked, The Velveteins, Moon Bounce, The Life and Times, Tobin Sprout, Eagle Rock Gospel Singers, and Ben Ottwell.

The Du Nord food and beverage program will continue to serve favorites from the previous menu, including the Burger Du Nord and bucket of fried chicken; they’ll also be adding new items such as the Woodhouse lobster roll.

Most recently, Noise Pop brought multiple nights of after-hours music programming to Café du Nord during Noise Pop Festival, which included secret sets from Thao (of Thao & The Get Down Stay Down), Cathedrals, Jay Som, Hamilton Leithauser, Geographer and Con Brio.
