1. MFNW 2012
How Much: Tickets
When: Wednesday, Sept 5th – Sunday, Sept 9th
Why: ‘Tis the season for MFNW, and tough decisions will need to be made. The festivities kick off tonight with: Passion Pit at Crystal Ballroom, Sloan at Doug Fir, Against Me! at Hawthorne Theatre, Superhumanoids at Mississippi Studios, and Red Fang at Roseland Theater. Check out the full schedule! Shameless plug: ELEVEN PDX sponsored event – Friday, 09/07: Pains of Being Pure at Heart w/ AAN, Daughn Gibson, and Moon Duo at Star Theater. You’ll sleep when you’re dead.
2. Divers w/ Something Fierce & Occult Detective Club
Where: The Know
How Much: $6
When: Friday, September 7th – 8pm
Why: If MFNW just isn’t your thing, check out this solid line-up at The Know. Power-pop fused with garage-punk from Texas – with emphasis on the punk – can be used to adequately describe both Occult Detective Club and Something Fierce, respectively. Divers, on the other hand, is reminiscent of The Boss in his glory days (with just a little punk on the side).
3. Wild Ones w/ Hausu & Sweeping Exits
Where: WTF Bikes
How Much: Free
When: Saturday, September 8th -8pm
Why: Yep, they have shows there! It’s not the first one, but it’s the first one in a while. The show is free and there’s talk of a “surprise guest”. If that doesn’t strike your curiosity, I should have had you at Wild Ones and sealed the deal with Hausu and Sweeping Exits. If you haven’t heard of these bands, I’m guessing you live under a rock. Check ‘em out and check out the show!

1. MFNW KICK-OFF PARTY: Gardens & Villa, Swahili & Grandparents
How Much: $10
When: Wednesday, May 30th – 8:30pm
Why: A little taste of what’s to come at MFNW this year with two of Portland’s finest local bands. Swahili’s tribal psychedelic sound, hypnotic drums, and krautrockian patterns will captivate you. Grandparents psych-pop shoegazy delicousness makes your body move without even realizing it. And then there’s Santa Barbara’s art synth-pop group Gardens & Villa, whose sweet Californian vibe will make you ache for summertime.
2. Gospel Music w/ Surfsdrugs & Fine Pets
Where: Ella St. Social Club
How Much: $5
When: Thursday, May 31st – 9pm
Why: Hailing from Jacksonville, FL, the last time we heard from Owen Holmes (aka Gospel Music and Black Kids’ bassist) was his collaboration with members of The Magnetic Fields, Camera Obscura, Vivian Girls, etc for the 2010 Duettes EP. The follow-up How To Get To Heaven From Jacksonville, FL is full of playful indie-pop tunes with friend Madeline Long providing the yin to Holmes’ yang. Show up early to catch Surfsdrugs (members of And And And/Glitter Express) and Fine Pets (members of Best Supporting Actress).
3. Crystal Fighters w/ Is Tropical & Tyler Tastemaker
Where: Wonder Ballroom
How Much: $12/$14
When: Saturday, June 2nd – 9pm
Why: If you leave this show without a stupid smile of pure unadulterated happiness and sweat-dampened clothes, you’re doing it wrong. Formed in London in 2007, the globally influenced electronic group released their debut in October of 2010 in the UK. A year and half later the dynamic, pulsating, electro dance-rock from across the pond was released in the US and has been making waves ever since. Get your ticket now and thank me later.
