Noise Pop Preview: Themselves, Yoni Wolf (of Why?) @ Apple Store 2/28

This week is San Francisco's annual Noise Pop festival. All week we will be previewing Noise Pop shows that may have slipped past you.
MP3 - "The Hollows" - Why?
You could seriously survive on a Noise Pop diet consisting strictly of free and early shows. Saturday, the Apple Store in downtown San Francisco plays host to a party sponsored by Terrorbird Media and XLR8R Magazine. The event is highlighted by the return of experimental hip hop duo Themselves, and also includes their labelmate Yoni Wolf of Why? This will mark the Themselves' first appearance in six years, before stops at South by Southwest and Coachella. The duo will be dropping theFREEhoudinimixtape real soon. Wolf is the mastermind behind Why? - an Oakland-based part quirky indie rock, part spaced-out hip hop trio that produced one of my favorite records of last year, Alopecia. I don't know what Wolf has cooked up on the solo tip, but I am sure it will be dope. Rainbow Arabia and Boy in Static also play.

MP3 - "Rubber Traits" - Why?
