Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne proudly read a Proclamation from SF Mayor Ed Lee Tuesday night at Bimbos, officially declaring February 21-26 "Noise Pop Week" in the city.

Coyne mentioned that five years ago, Noise Pop was honored for a day, from then Mayor Gavin Newsom, and now in their 20th year, they were rightly getting the proper recognition for a full week.

After performing the album The Soft Bulletin from start to finish, for the encore Coyne brought on stage what looked to be the behind the scenes movers and shakers of Noise Pop, and read from Honorable Mayor Edwin M. Lee's document.

After a few checks into the audience to see if the Mayor was in attendance, Coyne hugged and congratulated everyone in the group and told the audience that they should have faith because things like Noise Pop exist and thrive.

Noise Pop 2012 carries on with an impressive list of acts coming through town this week including: Die Antwoord, Built to Spill, Sleigh Bells, Bob Mould, Imperial Teen, Two Gallants, Archers of Loaf, and dozens more, some of whom will be showing up at places like Bender's Bar for nightly free shows starting in the late afternoon.
