Let’s Go! Music Fest NW - Portland


I will be trucking it on up to Portland tomorrow for MFNW 2010. The plan for the weekend is to go see dozens of bands and drink gallons of Stumptown. The set up is a little like CMJ and a little like SXSW in that you walk from venue to venue. It’s not all in one spot. There are official shows and non-official ones happening throughout the city. About 100 of the best bands currently touring will be there. Here are a few friends that will be there.

Frank Turner 11pm-11.45pm at Berbati’s Pan SW 3rd and SW Ankeny - This guy kills it. Everyone in the UK knows about him. Take a hint. He’s heading out on a tour back home shortly & will be on the road with Social Distortion for a full US tour this fall, too. Watch his newest video, The Road, on youtube & follow Frank Turner on Twitter.

Man Man 11pm-12.30am at Hawthorne Theatre 3862 SE Hawthorne Blvd - I just saw the guys play at FYF Fest in LA last weekend. They are too good live; weird and freaking out wearing warpaint as always. Fortunately, singer Honus Honus didn’t break his leg. Follow them @wearemanman.

Cheap Girls - 9-9.45m Doug Fir 830 East Burnside St. - They are not girls so that means they are either hilarious, or they prefer inexpensive dates. Pick your poison. I just heard about them today from a trustworthy source. I’m in. They’re playing with Japandroids & Jeff The Brotherhood. Follow them @cheap_girls.


Suckers - 11-11.45pm Berbati’s Pan SW 3rd and SW Ankeny - After listening to Cheap Girls kill it, hopefully I’ll be able to catch a bit of Suckers’ set. They are a good time. Black Sheep is the jam. So is that tight lion blanket. Follow them @sssuckersss.

People Under the Stairs 11pm-12.30am at Hawthorne Theatre 3862 SE Hawthorne Blvd
