NoisePop, San Francisco’s annual all-over-town music festival, is celebrating their 20th anniversary in style. They announced the lineup for their party and, trust us, you’re going to want to buy tickets. In fact, stop reading this and go buy tickets. Don’t believe us? Fine, you will when you see that this year’s stellar lineup includes The Flaming Lips, who will perform their classic album, The Soft Bulletin at the historic Bimbos 365 and former Husker Du frontmant Bob Mould performing the seminal Sugar album Copper Blue. If you’re greedy and that’s not enough for you, there’s so much more and something for everyone. Here are some of the many many musical highlights of the festival:
Archers of Loaf
Built to Spill

If music isn’t enough for you because you don’t have ears, don’t dig the vibes, or had some traumatic childhood trauma involving incredible music, there’s a full schedule of non-music events like the film series, art shows, pop up shops, and Portlandia swag, because we all know how much Portlandia loves San Francisco. That’s right, free party, free music, free swag.
Passes to the festival are flying out the door (we told you not to wait!), but individual tickets are still available to many of the shows. For more information, visit the festival website. So what are you waiting for? Go!
