Northwest House Music Conference

AP KRYZA
See music calendar for venue information and northwesthousemusicconference.com for more information., Wednesday July 31 | $10 individual events, $125 festival wristband.
 
[GOING UNDERGROUND] Twelve workshops and classes covering everything from production to design to dancing qualify this gathering of regional DJs as a conference, though we’re unaware of any other conference that has all-night parties going until 10 am. The music is the real focus of the inaugural NW House Music Conference. This is an underground festival with plenty of talented underground DJs, and Portland probably has enough underground fans to stock the dance floors of venues like the Rose and Bamboo Grove. The weekend really gets going with Johnny Fiasco on Friday night. A 25-year veteran of the Chicago house scene, Fiasco has managed to ride the house-music wave from the big bang to the present day by adopting elements of the acid-house subgenre, without altering the classic deep-house beat.
