Portland Music Video Festival

Despite the preponderance of old farts thinking “I remember when MTV played music videos” is either observational or funny, the art of the music video (and it is an art) is healthier than it’s ever been. Who needs MTV when YouTube, Vimeo, and a bevy of online platforms make watching (and rewatching) videos so easy (You’ve seen that new Janelle Monae joint, right? Damn.) The Portland Music Video Festival not only champions the best videos from around the world, it provides an opportunity to see them on the big screen—and just as importantly, to hear them on a massive surround sound system, as opposed to through the earbuds you have crammed in your head while trying to ignore all the shitty men crowding you on the bus.
