The Noise Pop 2012 lineup was expanded today with some great new shows: The Flaming Lips will perform The Soft Bulletin in full and Bob Mould will play the classic from his band Sugar with Copper Blue, also in full. Other acts added to the Noise Pop 2012 lineup are Sleigh Bells and Mac McCaughan of Superchunk with a solo show, Overwhelming Colorfast will reunite (because reunion shows are not just exclusive to Coachella) Two Gallants, The Fresh & Onlys, Class Actress, Peppercorn, Release The Sunbird, Slouching Stars and Big Sleep.
