The New Noise Music Festival looks a lot more promising than South By So What, as there is considerably more diversity in the lineup. (That's to say the lineup does not consist entirely of radio-friendly generic rock.)
Rather than repost a bunch of links, we’ll just refer you to Third String’s MySpace page, which is conveniently loaded with links to performers’ pages. The lineup is hit-or-miss, but there are definitely some acts worth checking out, such as Homer Hiccolm and Professors of Light (full list after the jump).
Doors open at noon on Saturday, April 26, at the Ridglea Theater in Fort Worth. Admission is $20, and it’s an all-ages show. –Jesse Hughey
