Celebrate the official kickoff of Eric Bachmann Week (also known as MusicfestNW) as the raspy-voiced singer starts his double shift in Portland. Tonight he'll be singing new songs for the old drunks at Bunk Bar, and later this week he'll make all my dreams come true by fronting a reinvigorated and reunited Archers of Loaf. Then he'll probably get the key to the city and then be awarded a novelty-sized check in appreciation for his contribution to the indie arts. Of course, it's hard for tonight's show to not be overshadowed by the AOL reunion, but please—for the love of God—do not walk away from Crooked Fingers. Their forthcoming Breaks in the Armor is Bachmann's finest work since '05's Dignity and Shame, and while his back catalog is damn near impeccable, it's safe to say Bachmann's best work still lies ahead of him.
