11 weeks from today is the start of Portland's MusicFestNW and the lineup is really solid all the way through. The headliners for this year is Band of Horses, Iron and Wine, and Explosions In the Sky. There are so many good bands that I just want to name them all, but I will just highlight some of the best. Archers of Loaf, Blitzen Trapper, Handsome Furs, The Antlers, The Thermals, Typhoon, Fool's Gold, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Finn Riggins, Jared Mees & The Grown Children, and so much more. Every week I will feature a couple of bands/artists from the festival this year starting with Avi Buffalo. This band is really chill indie rock with great lead falsetto vocals. It really reminds me of Vetiver and Real Estate, they have that cool summer sound. Check them out here.
