On September 7, 8 and 9 Musicfest NW will bring a slew of bands to a number of clubs in Portland, OR. Some of the highlights will include The Dandy Warhols and Brian Jonestown Massacre on September 7 and The Silver Jews and Stephen Malkmus on September 8 (both at Crystal Ballroom).
Proceeds from the festival will go to benefit the Rock & Roll Camp For Girls and Oregon Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame who will use the money to help fund music education in schools. For all the details on the festival, visit the official website.
Though this is the sixth year for the festival, Musicfest NW will release their first CD compilation on August 17. The comp will be sold at CD Baby, as well as other local Portland retailers. The CD features contributions from Crosstide, The Joggers, Spoon, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and a bunch more, including Eric Bachmann (Archers Of Loaf, Crooked Fingers). Bachmann's song "Lonesome Warrior" leads off the compilation and we're lucky enough to have an MP3 to give to you.
