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

Music
Yup, it's that time of year again: WW's own MusicfestNW is coming together all fast and furious-like. While this first look at the still-forming 2011 lineup doesn't allow for schedule-plotting, it does give a glimpse into--- what the latest incarnation of MFNW is all about: Rock music, mostly! There's old-school indie rock (Archers of Loaf, Sebadoh, Butthole Surfers), latter-day buzz acts (Ty Segall, ...   More

Portlandia Shooting Fake MusicfestNW at MusicfestNW


Movies & Television
If you see TV cameras while staggering between MusicfestNW venues tonight, give 'em your most disaffected sneer: Portlandia, the IFC improvisational comedy starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, will be shooting incidental footage at MFNW over the next several days. At a mini-junket luncheon today at Besaw's, Armisen (the Saturday Night Live Obama impersonator) and Brownstein (the Sleater-Kinney ...   More

MusicfestNW Diaries: Friday


Music
Here we are, day four of MFNW's five-day marathon, and only slightly worse for wear. Last night had its epic moments--some of mine included the Black Lips screaming like dinosaurs; the Shaky Hands playing their last show with the current lineup; Okkervil River playing "Red"; tacos at the after-party--and a couple of disappointments, as well. Read on, if you're not already downtown getting pumped for ...   More
