San Francisco's annual indie rock and dance music freakout, Noise Pop, is back this week at venues throughout the city, including free happy hour shows at Bender's Bar through Saturday. Mild winter weather provides ideal conditions for a Pier Crabbing Demonstration and History Expo at the Old Mint showcases San Francisco's past. Hello City shows off work inspired by Hello Kitty and Sanrio at North Beach's First Fridays Art Walk and Digital Detox encourages attendees to unplug with a device-free celebration.
