Against Me! has come a long way since forming in 1997, including a stint on Sire Records which ended in November 2010, and led to the formation of the band’s own label Total Trebel Music. The band started recording its sixth studio album in February of 2012 and will be very busy in the following months. Keep an eye out for the new album and be sure to catch them this fall at MFNW!!

Music Fest NW, OregonMUSICFESTNW ANNOUNCES INITIAL LINE UP FOR 2011!

Now in its 11th year of showcasing the finest in national and regional music in one of the most compelling urban areas in the country.

MusicfestNW is once again returning to the historic Pioneer Courthouse Square—Portland’s civic living room—for three outdoor performances headlined by rootsy indie rock outfit Band of Horses (Sunday, Sept. 11), celestial instrumental-rockers Explosions in the Sky (Saturday, Sept. 10), and the backwoods folk of Iron & Wine (Friday, Sept. 9).

Since MFNW’s beginning (as North by Northwest), it has aspired to put on a diverse event, one that honors one of this region’s best exports—the Northwest music scene—while looking to the future beyond the horizon.

That horizon includes a kick-off show by bluesy-punk duo The Kills on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at the Crystal Ballroom. The star studded festival also features performances by reunited indie rock legends Archers of Loaf and Butthole Surfers, atmospheric metal titans Neurosis, local folk-rockers Blind Pilot and Blitzen Trapper, and up-and-coming Seattle hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

MusicfestNW takes place from the 7th – 11th September in Portland
