    2. Gallery : MusicFestNW ends summer in Portland

      Posted on in Gallery

      Although our current weather status would disagree, Portland’s summer has finally come to an end but not before a 3-month-long music blowout with festivals ranging from coast to coast. A beloved event held so dear to the hearts of those in the City of Roses is the annual MusicFestNW held at the Tom McCall Waterfront Park downtown. This year’s waterfront-rager included acts such as Girl Talk, Phantogram, Spoon, and HAIM; only to be playing while you grab a bite to eat at some of the city’s best food carts or while perusing the poster market. Good grub, vintage-style tour posters, a luscious girl band—the dream of the 90s is alive in Portland.

      Starting in early October, critically acclaimed LA bands Io Echo and Haim will be touring together in support of new albums from both artists. Io Echo, an industrial indie pop rock act, has been garnering plenty of favor after a set at Lollapalooza, a spread in the September issue of Vogue, opening for several major artists, and a new album titled ‘Ministry of Love’ that was released Spring of this year. The duo will be touring with Haim, the folky indie rock quartet that is releasing their new album, ‘Days are Gone’, on 9/30.
