This year’s Noise Pop vendor fair, Pop ‘n’ Shop, catered to the hipster crowd looking for an escape-the-mall shopping experience. This celebration of independent fashion culture definitely emphasized D.I.Y., and we spotted one slogan that appropriately summed up the atmosphere: drink beer and make stuff.
Another sign that this wasn’t your average craft fair? The 21+ event hosted at Public Works boasted booze and free live entertainment, including a spoken word performance with orchestra accompaniment of Ted Naifeh’s novel Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things.
