2017 marks Noise Pop’s 25th year of independent music and film programming in the Bay Area. To celebrate, KQED Truly CA is giving away three pairs of tickets each to two uniquely California music documentaries appearing in this year’s film series.


The Colossus Of Destiny: A Melvins Tale follows the peaks, pitfalls, and ever-revolving bass players experienced by the beloved heavy three-piece during their 33-year career.


Follow the rise and fall of the “Golden Age” of rock n’ roll magazines with Ticket To Write. The film offers a window onto the 1966 – 1981 era of music journalism when writers like Lester Bangs and Ben Fong-Torres were often as revered as rock stars.

Fill out the form below for a chance to win a pair of tickets to one of these fantastic California music documentaries.


From all entries, we’ll randomly select three winners for a pair of tickets (worth $12 per ticket). Deadline to enter is Thursday, February 16 at 11:59 pm. Winners will be notified by e-mail on  Friday, February 17 and tickets will be held at Will Call. You must be a California resident and 18 years or older to participate. Employees of KQED are not eligible to enter.
