The MusicfestNW Diaries, 2011

We rocked and rolled all night. We partied every day. We even tweeted.


Music Stories
MusicfestNW is growing up. The festival has gotten longer—five days in all; the wristbands are more expensive; the production values are higher (see the epic shows at Pioneer Courthouse Square);    More

The MusicfestNW Diaries 2011: Wednesday

A slow, sweaty start.

kills

Music
We start slow. We start slow because MusicfestNW would literally kill us if all five days were as packed as, say, Saturday.--- Yesterday’s lineup only included four venues (and a kick-off party with food from a bunch of fancy local chefs and an appearance from the Ice Cream Man), but that’s what we needed. A slow start. Stay tuned, as there will be daily MFNW updates to come—and they’ll get ...   More

MusicfestNW Posts Full Schedule

Music
I'm not great at planning. Forgetting birthdays and missing meetings is kind of "my thing." But when it comes to Willamette Week's own MFNW, I like to plan my weekend down to the hour. (Then I get drunk and miss half the shows on my schedule—but that's not the point.) Anyway, if you're anything like me, this handy-dandy online MFNW schedule is going to blow your socks off. It comes complete ...   More

Q&A: Arctic Monkeys


Music
Arctic Monkeys have enjoyed a meteoric rise in Europe since their 2006 incisive-indie debut, Whatever People Say I am, That's What I'm Not. Third offering Humbug sees the band take a darker, dirtier direction under the tutelage of Josh Homme and James Ford. Recorded at the Rancho, Mojave Desert, and the Electric Lady Studios in New York, the best new songs “Crying Lightning” and “Cornerstone” ...   More

MusicfestNW Announces Preliminary Lineup (Exclusive!)


Music
MFNW director Trevor Solomon likes to walk over to our desks and say things like "Major Lazer." We're, presumably, supposed to provide some kind of response. Some of these crazy ideas come to fruition (Major Lazer, for example), and some of them don't. But by this time of year, WW's annual MusicfestNW festival (Sept. 9-12) is in its "mostly figured out" phase. Headliners like the National, Sleep, the ...   More
