But one of the wonders of living in a seasonal twilight-zone like San Francisco is a festival can strike at any time, like...now! <a href="http://lineup.noisepop.com/">Noise Pop</a> is here, a springtime selection of independent music, art and film.

Andrew is the host of the weekly silent film screening in Niles. He stands in front of the screen and explains that the museum only exists because of New York actor Max Aronson. Aronson, who renamed himself Gilbert Anderson, got his big break in films at the turn of the last century after he lying about his ability to ride a horse. He got a small part in what became a very popular film called <em>The Great Train Robbery</em>.
