2012 marks the twentieth anniversary of the Noise Pop Festival, an achievement that’s a testament to the fest’s consistently strong offerings every year. In the milestone spirit, the early lineup for the 2012 fest — which runs from February 21st through the 26th — feature a number of Noise Pop veterans, including Cursive, Imperial Teen, and Archers of Loaf, the last of whom performed way back at Noise Pop #5. At the same time, there is plenty of newer blood named too; count me particularly excited for Veronica Falls, whose last SF outing was canceled due to visa problems, and the welcome return of Surfer Blood.
Veronica Falls – “Found Love In A Graveyard”
