Noise Pop, San Francisco's premiere indie music festival, has announced the first round of performers for its 20th year. They're pairing bands that have played since its 1993 inauguration with artists inspired by those acts--making 2012 the festival's biggest year yet. See the lineup below, and check out the just-live website (and Shepard Fairey--you know, who made this rather familiar piece--did this year's artwork).
