Because we here at Local Cut are so damned nice and really have nothing else to do but troll about the internet looking for good deals on car insurance and music videos on YouTube, we decided that we would provide you with some sounds and visions of the bands playing tonight at MusicfestNW.
Actually, the fact that we have the ability to do this is pretty damn amazing. The luddite in me says "Don't do it. If you give these people the ability to experience live music in the comfort of their homes, they will never leave and music as we know it will die." Then another part of me realizes that these clips (some live recordings, some music videos) are just an approximation of what you can expect tonight and that you know that. Or maybe you need to be reminded. These are just rough approximations, people! If you don't go out, you will not experience the pleasure of Kevin O'Connor's snare rattling your rib cage or Anton Newcombe's foot rattling your head. Okay. Enjoy.
