Noise Pop isn't like other music festivals, which usually announce their entire lineup at once. Instead, the bills for San Francisco's premiere indie music gathering are announced over months, giving fans continuous excitement -- and perhaps a little anxiety. It's only been a week since Noise Pop released the first batch of performers for 2012, its 20th anniversary year,  and we've already learned of more. New performers include Wye Oak, the Baltimore indie-rock duo that's topped several year-end lists so far, and Big Freedia, the New Orleans dance diva project shaking hips across the country. Hit the jump for full list of new additions to Noise Pop 2012.

  • San Francisco Street Food Festival 2014
    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
