Noise Pop is preparing to take over Fillmore, Great American Music Hall, Starline Social Club and other Bay Area venues for a week of shows Feb. 25–Mar. 3, and the promotional outfit just announced its a big chunk of its lineup for the 2019 fest, with more acts to be revealed in January. Per usual, the concert series features an eclectic mix of hip-hop, R&B, indie rock, pop and experimental music. Best of all, unlike a weekend-long fest, you can choose your own adventure and attend the shows suited to your tastes.
Next year's Noise Pop features some standout rising artists as well as established faves. Princess Nokia, the trendsetting New York rapper who puts body positivity and her Afro-Caribbean roots at the forefront of her work, is one of those acts, as well as Beirut, the horn-forward indie rock band whose work draws from Eastern European folk music. Baths, the LA producer, makes colorful electronic compositions that are as whimsical as they are danceable. Venerated guitarist Bob Mould, known for his work with Hüsker Dü in the '80s and Sugar in the '90s, also performs.
