San Francisco will once again welcome the end of winter with its annual Noise Pop festival, now in its 17th year. The multi-day music and film event is set to take place February 24 - March 1, 2009, in various locations around the city.
Early lineup confirmations include No Age, Pinback side-project Goblin Cock, Dear and the Headlights, Bay Area-based band Clues, New Pornographers frontman A.C. Newman, and a special performance by Antony and the Johnsons. Oh, and the screening of Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison, which is part of the festival’s film aspect.
Previous characters to grace the Noise Pop stages have been Blitzen Trapper, Holy Fuck, the Magnetic Fields, MSTRKRFT, Panther, Tilly and the Wall, and many, many others. Stay tuned for updates to the lineup as we move closer into the new year.
