Bob Mould, Thao, The Ohsees and Sleepy Sun have been added to the line-up for this year’s Noise Pop Festival, taking place February 24-March 1 in San Francisco, CA.
John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats will also take part in “song and conversation” as part of a special lecture event ‘Talking Music’.
They join the likes of Stephen Malkmus, French Kicks, Ra Ra Riot, Martha Wainwright, Antony & The Johnsons and New Pornographers frontman AC Newman at the event which is similar to Austin’s South by Southwest and New York’s CMJ, with a film festival, panel discussions, and other industry-related events.
