Summerfector 2: Cop on Fire, Wartorn, Appalachian Terror Unit, Kudzu 

When: Sun., Aug. 31, 1 p.m. 2008
If it weren't for the Defector, Portland would be less connected to its own inspiring anarchist/punk community. The nearly four-year-old free zine is an essential DIY resource, from its sprawling two-page monthly calendar (which can be easily removed and put on your damn refrigerator) to its evolving list of local contacts (hey, where's the Mercury?). Better still are the big, glorious, black-and-white local band photos covering so many of the pages. And sometimes, we even get a free CD. This week's Summerfector festival is set to highlight the riveting music the Defector champions, including area and international acts. Spread out over six shows, the festival is perhaps best embodied by Portland's own Tragedy, a globally beloved D-beat hailstorm which plays at Satyricon on Sunday. MM
