The last words (and photos) on this year's MFNW.

animalcollective_mikegrippi_10

MusicfestNW is done, as you've no doubt noticed. And we swear we're going to stop talking about it for the next year. (Trust me, even those of us in the office don't want to hear the letters "MFNW" spoken in sequential order for at least the next eight months.) Before we go, though, here's one last roundup of highlights from our intrepid—and no doubt still recovering—staff of writers and...   More

MFNW Diaries: Friday, Saturday & Sunday

It's all over but the exhaustion.

Around Day 4 of MFNW, everything turns into a blur, in more ways than one. It becomes an unending string of bands, one right after the other, with brief gaps that may be sleep or just a memory wipe. In that spirit, here's how we wrapped up this year's magnificent bastard of a festival, in one massive, three-day post. (Contributing writers, in order of appearance: Matthew P. Singer, Arya Imi...   More

MFNW Diaries: Thursday

Welcome to MusicfestNW 2013, a.k.a. Woodstock '94.

Sometimes it snows in April, and sometimes, MFNW gets rained on. Not that often, or ever—not in the last five years, anyway—but it happened last night, as a torrential downpour drenched the city just as the inaugural Pioneer Square show was kicking off. What can you say? Welcome to Portland, bitches. (Contributing writers, in order of appearance: Matthew P. Singer, Robert Ham, Arya Imig, Jo...   More

MFNW Diaries: Wednesday

Two days in and MusicfestNW hasn’t even really started. Technically, Tuesday was the kickoff, but Wednesday is traditionally the prelude to the wall-to-wall music that runs through the rest of the week. But if this is just the beginning...whoo, boy.

MFNW Diaries: Tuesday

Joey is Bada$$, Redd Kross rocks and Black Bananas are...um...something.

It begins.MusicfestNW is here, and at six days long, it’s an even more ungainly beast than usual. Thankfully, we were still allowed to ease into it slowly, with only two shows happening directly across the street from one another. Here’s our report from Night 1.
