Nouse Pop

The Noise Pop Festival returns in 2008 from February 26 to March 2. Over six nights, Noise Pop 16 will take over the best-loved venues in San Francisco, to host unforgettable performances by Magnetic Fields, The Mountain Goats, The Gutter Twins, Cursive and dozens of other important indie rock, electronic, punk and cutting edge musical artists, transforming the city into an almost week-long celebration of the finest that the underground and not-so-underground has to offer, nationally and locally.
Kelly Stoltz, Tilly & The Wall, Capgun Coup, Fleet Foxes, Fu Manchu, Saviours, Man/Miracle and Blitzen Trapper are also confirmed.

Not confirmed at all is this letter Bob Lefsetz sent out from someone he purposely left anonymous....

Zeppelin just confirmed for Bonnaroo. They can't officially announce until after the London gig so pass it on! Also Metallica is confirmed on the bill too!
In related news, Led Zeppelin denies that they're going on tour with the Cult (thx Hiro).

Like Bonnaroo, the new Vineland Music Festival in NJ will offer 3 days of music and camping (but much closer to home - my home anyway). I hope Led Zeppelin plays that too.

Magnetic Fields are also playing four NYC shows and have a new album coming out soon. The Mountain Goats just played NYU and also have a new album coming out soon. Robert Plant has a new album out, and it's selling really well.

Have been hoping for Zep at Bonnaroo for a while now. Was hoping for Radiohead too, but their new European dates conflict with that.

Adding creedence to the Zep rumors is the fact that John Paul Jones was all over Bonnaroo last year, playing the Superjam with ?Love and Ben Harper, and sitting in with Uncle Earl, Gov't Mule, and some other bands. He even did a spontaneous set in the Press area at one point.

Bonnaroo also has Pearl Jam confirmed. It's their only gig of 2008.

I wonder if Led Zep got pissed off at Ian Astbury for letting slip that the Cult would tour with them and cancelled that deal.
