Portland's biggest music festival is upon us, with 170 bands playing different venues around town. How on earth are you going to decide what to see?
The Mercury has combed through the MusicfestNW lineup and found all the gems you won't want to miss. Since we have no interest in selling you a wristband—that's the other weekly's job—you can trust our frankness in letting you know which bands are actually worth seeing and which are soupy piles of crapola. Plus, we'll tell you how you can catch a bunch of great music for free, no wristband required.
