Noise Pop celebrates its 20th birthday in 2012, and its lineup once again features the expert curation of fresh-faced artists that we’ve come to expect: Die AntwoordBleachedGrimes and oOoOO are among the names that hit the scene recently and started making waves in a hurry. But there’s a hidden story in Noise Pop’s 2012 lineup – a slick tribute, on this notable anniversary, to its rich 20-year history of highlighting these acts on the rise. One need only look to the veterans returning to the festival’s lineup for 2012.

Of course, there’s headliner Flaming Lips, whose “Boombox Experiment” at Noise Pop 1998 provided a glimpse of the band that would establish themselves the kings of psychedelia in the following years. Archers of Loaf played Noise Pop in 1997. Imperial Teen, 1999. Built to Spill, while not technically Noise Pop alums, have been around longer…

Joe Principe of Rise Against, Derek Grant of Alkaline Trio, Vic Bondi of Articles Of Faith, and Jeff Dean of Noise By Numbers have started a new band called Dead Ending. The band recorded songs this past November in Chicago, but additional information on when those songs will be released is not clear. You can check out the only update the band has given below by clicking “Read More.”

Katie Hovland from Jaded in Chicago snapped some photos this past November when we got together in the studio for the first time. See them here: http://www.jadedinchicago.com/ 2012/01/1850/

Atlas Sound will play Noise Pop 2012.

Noise Pop 2012 – its 20th anniversary edition – is shaping up to be something fierce. Atlas Sound is the final headliner to be announced, joining The Flaming Lips (who will playThe Soft Bulletin in its entirety), Built to Spill and Cursive atop the bill.

To that end, Noise Pop has dropped their 2012 schedule, and we’re already putting targets on the shows we’d like to see. Because “all of them” is not particularly helpful advice (though it’s an option we support, if you have a handful of clones at the ready), we’ve picked the one concert per day that we think will be exceptional (which was absolutely not easy to narrow down, by the way).

Shows are 21+ unless otherwise noted, and festival badges get you into every event except The Flaming Lips and Die Antwoord.

Noise Pop 2012 has revealed another chunk of their lineup today, including a huge headliner with Noise Pop history: The Flaming Lips. They’ll join Cursive and Built to Spill as the headliners for the special 20th anniversary edition of the multi-venue San Francisco festival. Sleigh Bells, Bob Mould and The Fresh & Onlys are among the other names announced today.

The Flaming Lips will play the entirety of their album “The Soft Bulletin” on February 21st, 2012 at Bimbo’s 365 Club, with Release the Sunbird opening in support. Tickets are $50 and will go on sale January 15, 2012 at 10am PST. Festival badges which include entry to the Flaming Lips show will go on sale at 11am.

The band is a fitting addition to Noise Pop’s already-juiced 20th anniversary lineup. The act played Noise Pop in 2006 and, long before they were the weird colorful geniuses…
