The Owl Mag‘s Happy Hour during last week’s Noise Pop festivities was a huge success thanks to our friends at Noise Pop, Audyssey, Bender’s Bar, and our new friends in Coast Jumper, Soft Swells, and Picture Atlantic, and all of you who came out to kick off an event-filled evening of amazing music in San Francisco. As happy meter during Happy Hour continued to steadily increase with a mixture of some seriously heart attack worthy bar food and $3 Trumer, the boys of Coast Jumper started the night out on the right foot and showed why San Francisco boasts some of the best up and coming artists on the scene.

Soft Swells took a long van ride up from Los Angeles just to be at Bender’s for our little event, and boy, are we sure glad they did. Keep an eye out for Soft Swells‘ debut self-titled album which releases today (album review to also be released on The Owl Mag today)!

To close things out, Picture Atlantic had Bender’s jumping around with the happiest of Happy Hour glee with their energy-filled seven song setlist. Until next year San Francisco, here’s a big feathery hug from all of us at The Owl Mag. We can’t wait for Noise Pop 2013!
