This week's issue is packed to the gills with MusicfestNW
, the multi-day music festival put on by that other
weekly paper. Since we're not at all invested in it financially, we're giving you the true-blue scoop—which bands to see and which to skip. Check out our officially unofficial guide
to all things MFNW, which includes:
• Our comprehensive list of show previews
(almost twice as big as what appears in the paper!)
• Thoughtful, emotionally moving articles on Typhoon
, Neko Case
, Sonny and the Sunsets
, Charles Bradley
, and Baroness
• The Mercury's exclusive guide
to how you can see tons of great music without a wristband... or dollars!
And we even found room for some non-Musicfest shows, including Adam Ant, who's back, and ABBA, who's not. Plus your customary list of Up & Coming shows!
