Last time we checked, various official (and unofficial) leaks had identified a dozen bands as performing at this year's MusicFest NW festival. Let's see 'em: The Gories, Thee Oh Sees, Pure County Gold, Frank Turner, Justin Townes Earle, Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside, Mbillly, Akron/Family, Menomena, Don't, Pierced Arrows, and if you believe the gossip, Sleep.
Well, let's toss a few more names on that list. Hotshit emcee Wiz Khalifa has just been added, alongside openers Grieves and Animal Farm, plus if USA Today is to be believed (and who would dare doubt America's finest source for Larry King columns and colorful pie charts?) Phantogram will be there as well. Also, according to this link, Big Freedia will be at the Roseland Theater on September 9th (MFNW's opening night) with Major Lazer and Starfucker (damn, that is a good show). That would bring our running total to 19.
