MusicFestNW: Portland

Aesop Rock
Musicfest Northwest will be held at various venues throughout Portland, Oregon on September 6, 7, 8 & 9, and wristbands for the four-day event are on sale now. Among the headliners will be Spoon, Rilo Kiley, Aesop Rock, Okkervil River and Roky Erickson.

The 2007 MFNW has expanded this year, and in a statement issued by organizers we are told that its “ultimate aim is to provide Portland with a unique and special musical experience that honors the talent of the Northwest while giving back to the local kid-focused music programs such as the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Camp for Girls for the second year in a row.”
