The annual South by Southwest music conference in Austin, Texas, is everything good and bad about the music industry rolled up into a few days of fevered exhaustion. Therefore, the month of March is a time of both dread and joy for musicians and hangers-on alike, as SXSW looms its head over basically everything else that's happening musically. Skipping it altogether might result in fewer gray hairs, but there's always a slightly bitter sense of disappointment at missing out on the frenzy. No more! The first annual FXFU "festival" takes place this Saturday within the time-warp of Southeast Portland's Eagles Lodge. A tall stack of local acts make up the extraordinarily diverse bill—including the improvised jams of Stiffwiff and the Petty-ready folk-rock of Mike Coykendall—and there'll be no need for the schmoozing and networking that are the low points of this weekend's other music fest.
