CouvFest NW: Rags & Ribbons, The Sindicate, Travis Petersen Band, Outer Space Heaters, Neighbors, Jozi Bently, Dogs & Beer, The Soapmakers, Tyler Morgan, The Commons, Fat Sasquatch 

When: Sat., Aug. 4, 12 p.m. 2012
It's been scientifically verified through copious case studies, on-the-ground data collection, and myriad test subject intimidation that Vancouver is definitely not Portland. But that doesn't mean our sister city to the north doesn't have taste, or that their thirst for live outdoor music is any easier slaked. Submitted as evidence is the return of the annual CouvFest NW, featuring local Vancouverite artists all day at Turtle Place Park for absolutely free. We'll ignore that Rags and Ribbons rep themselves as Portlanders, because when it really comes down to it, who gives a shit? The band's densely grained, guitar-heavy, pianos 'n' harmonies prog epicness, as found on most recent LP The Glass Masses, is big enough for both cities. RYAN J. PRADO
