Independent music promoter Noise Pop revealed the full music lineup for the sixth annual 20th Street Block Party, headlined by electro-synth-pop Empress Of and Latin American singer-songwriter, Lorely Rodriguez.

The neighborhood celebration brings together an eclectic mix of music and entertainment on multiple stages, plus food, drink, and art. The one-day, end-of-summer event takes place right outside the front doors of the Noise Pop headquarters along 19th and 20th Streets, between Harrison and Bryant Streets in the Mission District. The event is free to attend and benefits its 19th Street neighbors and the nonprofit organization Mission Language and Vocational School (MLVS).

Beyond the headliners, other musical talents performing this year include ska-punk pioneer Jeff Rosenstock, psychedelic-soul group The Marías, four-piece San Francisco-based garage rock band The She’s, Meric Long of The Dodo’s new solo project FAN, San Francisco-based pop-punk rockers Total Betty’s, and local teenager rock outfit Small Crush. One final music performer will be announced in the coming weeks…
