For the fourth year in a row we’re excited to announce our sponsorship of Portland, Oregon’s MusicFest Northwest (aka MFNW). From September 8-12th this beloved indie music festival will showcase more than 170 international and regional performing artists at a combined 21 venues around the greater Portland area. Between the city’s food, friends, fresh air and legendary music & arts community, MFNW offers the most laid back lurk of any music festival on the west coast. Really, it just feels so nice to be there.
At the Bagdad Theater on Friday, September 10th, Incase & MFNW will present the new concert documentary Burning by Scottish post-rock giants Mogwai. If you’re at all wondering what this means, we can spell it out in three words: serious rock action. If an instrumental band ever deserved having a full-length concert film made about their live show it would be Mogwai. Bring ear plugs and a quadruple espresso. Doors at 7PM, tickets are $5 clams. For a chance to win film tickets and VIP passes to the festival check: @MUSICFESTNW
We’ll also be at Pioneer Square on September 11-12th for two nights of outdoor concerts with festival headliners The National, The Walkmen, Helio Sequence and The Decemberists. Join us as we gift a zillion Incase Snap Cases and get deeply weird enjoying the city’s Indian summer. Check the recap of MFNW 2009. Really, it’s worth it!
