MusicfestNW: Ted Leo, Rebecca Gates, Death Songs, Wild Ones 

When: Sat., Sept. 10, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $13
Things to do when I rob a bank (and then tell everyone I won the lottery): (1) Buy Mom a house. (2) Give the rest of the money to Ted Leo. Our savior of domestic punk—even if his music barely touches the margins of what the liberty-spiked masses consider punk—Leo has weathered the storm of bankrupt record companies and countless other bad breaks over the course of an untouchable multi-decade career (both solo and as the frontman to Chisel—who join Lifter Puller as the other respected band of yore that you know about, but probably have never listened to). Even if your very core is a cold, empty pit of cynicism, hatred, and despair, you will find solace in his inspiring working-class anthems. Leo is a goddamn national treasure, and it's time we started treating him like one. Ted, the cash is in the mail. Watch out for that dye pack. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
