Who are these people? Let's find out...

To illustrate this week's package of stories about the 20th Anniversary of Noise Pop, SF Weekly photographed some of the local artists headlining shows this year's festival. The music of Thao Nguyen, John Vanderslice, Sonny Smith (of Sonny & the Sunsets), Bare Wires, Papercuts, Young Prisms, and Dirty Ghosts all sounds fairly different -- there's sprightly folk, primitive power pop, and innovative electro-rock among them. But these are all among the Bay Area's premiere indie musicians, the kind that Noise Pop has shown off over the last 20 years.

Giving national exposure to the local scene has been one of the festival's most significant contributions -- and part of the reason why, after two decades, it's hard not to see Noise Pop's indie-minded crusade as a success. After the jump, check out a full list of who's on the cover of this week's issue.
