MusicfestNW: Silversun Pickups, School of Seven Bells, Atlas Genius 

When: Sun., Sept. 9, 5:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $32
In 2010, Silversun Pickups were very nearly victims of the Best "New" Artist Grammy, that most bizarre and career-killing of any award in musicdom. They lost to a country band, and this spring's release of Neck of the Woods has shown that they are more than a '90s nostalgia act with a loyal following. Now that they are chart-topping popular darlings, they've tempered their hazy, dense shoegaze with stylish synths and dance-worthy beats. They've paired their dark, dramatic melodicism with good salesmanship. REBECCA WILSON
