MusicFestNW Live Blog: Day 1

PretentiousPDX will be Live Blogging from MusicFestNW all week long. Stay tuned for updates from MOSTOFTHESHOWS!

DAY ONE: TUESDAY

9:18PM
Taptaptap. Is thing on? Alright, kids, welcome to the PretentiousPDX liveblog of MusicFestNW 2013!

Our adventure starts here (rather inauspiciously) at Dante’s for local Portland band Summer Cannibals’ set.

So far, so good – there’s currently more of a line for Voodoo Donuts than there is at Dante’s.

9:24PM
Summer Cannibals are pretty good! Vocals are a little drowned out, though.

9:28PM
I just realised that I have to wear this wristband all week, and I’m already starting to feel commitment issues. Man, I’m never gonna be able to get married.

9:30PM
Or maybe I just don’t want to have the MySpace logo on my wrist all week…

9:37PM
Summer Cannibals just finished their set, but they promised that they “have shit for sale.” I’m hoping they’re referring to merch.

9:44PM
A lot of dudes are here glued to their phones. I can’t tell if they’re blogging like me, or just assholes.

9:52PM
Next up: some band called “Black Bananas”
I know nothing about them.

10:09PM
Black Bananas just came on stage. Is this chick high?

10:11PM
Trippy synths, brah!

10:14PM
I like these guys. If Joan Jett & Karen O had a baby that went on to front MGMT, I imagine it’d sound something like this.

10:39PM
Next up: Redd Kross. The only music video of theirs that I’ve seen features them wearing KISS makeup. Not sure I wanna stay for this…

11:11PM
Got tired of waiting for a band I don’t want to see. Day One: Completed.

Thus endeth the lesson.
