Musicfest NW Releases Compilation
- Words: Fred Miketa
As previously reported, dreary Portland is set to liven up a bit with this year's Musicfest NW, the four-day music event featuring a host of acts like Deerhunter, Girl Talk, Aesop Rock, Atlas, and Grizzly Bear.
To further rev fans up for the event, the festival organizers have put together a CD sampler highlighting some of the artists confirmed for this year's event. The disc is available now, online and in Portland, OR record stores. Proceeds from sales go towards both the festival and the Rock and Roll Camp for Girls.
Musicfest NW 2007 takes place September 6, 7, 8, and 9, 2007, in Portland, OR.
