The movers and shakers at MusicFest NW have decided to take their festival announcement away from us spoiled bloggers and make a party of it. The MFNW 2011 lineup will be announced Tuesday, May 31 at the newly remodeled Star Theater (13 NW 6th). In lieu of MFNW booker Trevor Solomon shouting band names into a microphone, this will be an actual concert with sets by Mad Rad, Weinland, And And And, and the Globes.

Also, it's free. So you have no excuse to miss it.
