MusicfestNW Begins!

Man, there are a lot of great bands playing in Portland in the next few days. If I wasn't a brand new dad I'd be straining my stamina standing in line and dancing in front of just about every stage, but now I have to pace myself. Although I already have my Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of MusicfestNW planned, there are plenty of other options, including lots of great local bands. Sure, sure, The National are playing on Sunday, but it's during the day and outside and I've never been a fan of either.

Here is a quick list of some of the great bands I am hoping come back on tour soon (or if they are local, just play another show soon): Mark Olson, Red Fang, Black Lips, Boy Eats Drum Machine, Shaky Hands, Magic Kids, Okkervil River, New York Rifles, The Tallest Man On Earth, The Builders & The Butchers, Blue Giant, The Upsidedown, The Mynabirds, BOAT, Titus Andronicus, Suckers, The Dodos, Monarques, Helio Sequence, and The Walkmen.

See you on the other side.

Maybe it's time for your first father son might mention that last night was pretty awesome and he can continue to sleep for stretches of 3 hours at a time. You know, so you can go to more concerts.

That, or if he is going to stay up anyway, we might as well be out somewhere fun.
