The Flaming Lips Added to Noise Pop Festival Lineup

The Noise Pop Music Festival has its sights on 2006 as a time to make some changes and do things better (How do you get better when you're the "awesomest?"). They've gotten off to a great start.

They've added a 7th day, to make it a complete week, and they brought back the Flaming Lips. That's right, the Flaming Lips. They'll kick off the day one as a massive introduction to the festival with everyone in the music world trying to get tickets to Bimbo’s 365 club, billed by Noise Pop as an 'intimate setting.'

Other new band announcements include deadboy & the Elephantmen, Aqueduct, Asobi Seksu, Black Lips, Xiu Xiu, and These Arms Are Snakes.

If you've been to or been a part of Noise Pop in the past, they might use you to do some blogging on their new Noise Pop Blog. Send them a couple hundred words on what made it so great, and if you get the gig, you get to go for free to every event. You also have to continually write about it.

And this year is already looking to keep its title of "awesomest" with early confirmations on Four Tet's Kieran Hebden (w/ Steve Reid), Feist, and Rogue Wave, among others. There's also their film festival and educational series. Details are minimal now, but festival organizers are promising more bands and a few "tricks up their sleeve." They've also launched the now standard MySpace page.
