Noise Pop Industries is excited to announce the full music lineup for this year’s 20th Street Block Party 2021, which returns to the SF Mission District on Saturday, October 16. Although the event is free to attend for all attendees, a limited number of Headliner Experience VIP passes for the Block Party are on sale now at

This year’s community celebration offers a diverse array of musical tastes as well as local performers from both the Bay Area and across the West Coast. Headliners include Y La Bamba, an acclaimed eclectic indie folk-pop band based in Portland lead by singer-songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza and SF’s very own R&B/soul/rock band Con Brio.

Additional performers include the Los Angeles-based garage-rock trio L.A. Witch; plus a number of up-and-coming performers that hail from the Bay Area such as power-pop foursome French Cassettes; grunge-pop indie band Same Girls; genre-bending punk rocker King Isis; Latinx R&B collective LOUDA Y Los Bad Hombres; and new-wave group Strange Cities that is comprised of members from other SF bands like In Letter Form, Murder of Lilies, and I Am Animal. The full music lineup is listed below.
