MusicfestNW Launch Party: Chvrches, Still Corners
128 NE Russell St.
[FESTIVAL TEASER] From the Department of Shameless Self Promotion: Yes, this show, aside from featuring the glistening synth-pop of rising Glaswegian trio Chvrches, is the launch party for MusicfestNW, Portland's biggest annual music festival, which this paper just happens to put on. But c'mon: I'd be excited for the lineup reveal even if I worked at that other alt-weekly. So I'm not going to lie and say the announcement isn't, perhaps, more important than the music itself. That isn't to downgrade the sleek, starry-eyed compositions of the headliners, it's just, well, thanks to my job title, I'm privy to certain information, and let me just say this: You're going to be stoked.
Where: Wonder Ballroom
Address: 128 NE Russell St.
