LA’s PAPA is one of about five billion artists just confirmed for SXSW.

Today’s a big day for festival announcements. SXSW announced its third round of artists (it’s pretty folking great–and yes, I meant folking), and NoisePop just confirmed some of the artists for their 20th anniversary. More will be announced at the official announcement party on December 8th.

Here are the NoisePop artists, confirmed by Spin today:

Archers of Loaf
