With less than a month to go until the 17th annual Noise Pop festival, organizers recently announced more performers, including Pavement's Steve Malkmus playing solo, former Hüsker Dü wild man Bob Mould, and Kool Keith. Also slated to perform are the Mountain Goats, Antony and the Johnsons, and local folk rock artist David Dondero. The lineup isn't set in stone yet though, so look out for more late-breaking additions. Noise Pop events and concerts start February 20 and continue through March 1.
But where's Devendra Banhart when you need him? Well, perhaps Outside Lands and Noise Pop are a little much, but at least you'll get to see some of his artwork, which will be included as part of photographer Lauren Dukoff's show Family, documenting Banhart and other "freak folk" artists (or whatever you want to call them) such as Joanna Newsom and Bat For Lashes. Family opens February 20 at Eleanor Harwood Gallery (1295 Alabama St., SF). - Ben Taylor
