Girl Talk, Copy, and Tons More Set to Rock Musicfest NW
- Words: Fred Miketa
Musicfest NW is Portland, OR’s foray into the festival world, and this four-day extravaganza will see everyone from Clipse to Roky Erikson to The Fucking Champs to Girl Talk descend on various clubs around the city from Thursday, September 6 - Sunday, September 9, 2007.
Last year’s Musicfest NW featured mostly rock-oriented acts like The Melvins, Jeremy Engik, and The Dandy Warhols. While 2007 will see some of those artists returning, this year boasts a wider range of performers–Copy, Lifesavas, YACHT, Panther, Aesop Rock, Grizzly Bear–that should please fans of every genre. Portland is the new Austin–at least this autumn.
Thus far, artists appearing include Aesop Rock, Wolf Parade, Girl Talk, Grizzly Bear, Deerhunter, Lifesavas, Dan Deacon, YACHT, Bobby Conn, Panther, Copy, ATLAS, Balkan Beat Box, and many, many more. Check the fest’s site for a complete list of performers and venue details.
Local hero Copy will make an appearance at the festival.
