Tonight in Seattle:  

It's time to prefunk! Music Fest Northwest is coming, September 8-12

While everyone is prefunking Bumbershoot, we'd like to take a moment to officially get the prefunk to the prefunk for Music Fest Northwest going. Starting today.

If you've never been, MFNW is like a crazier, spread-out-ier Bumbershoot -- spanning four days and venues all over town -- or a tinier, cleaner SXSW. Minus the industry hoo-ha and power-showcases and seminars. Beginning on Wednesday, September 8th, our sweet sister-city will be hosting a veritable slew of amazing bands all over town. Acts like Okkervil River, Menomena, the Decemberists, the Cave Singers, Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside, the Thermals, Dave Bazan, Bobby Bare, Jr., the Walkmen, the National, and the Tallest Man On Earth -- among many, many others -- will be bringing an extended weekend of bliss to Portland for our listening and viewing pleasure.

We'll be featuring more of the bands we're excited to see play this year over the next week, and posting our recommendations on which shows we think you'd like to catch, day-by-day. Until then, however, please enjoy the official MFNW commercial -- and when that's done, take a minute to swing over to the MFNW website and get started on your schedule. Tickets (may) still be available by the time this posts -- you can check here to see what's left, although the three-day VIP tickets have already sold out.

Stay tuned for more prefunk!

Every time I see this, I die laughing.

...And Millomainia.

Definitely a smaller more manageable sxsw than a spreadier bumbershoot, but a lot of fun either way. Looking forward to another year of mfnw!
can't wait to sail my boat on the oakerville riviera.
