Willamette Week is thrilled to announce the lineup for MusicfestNW 2012, now in its 12th year of showcasing the finest in national and regional music in one of the most compelling urban areas in the country.

MusicfestNW is once again returning to the historic Pioneer Courthouse Square—Portland’s civic living room—for three picturesque outdoor headlining performances at Levi’s Pioneer Stage headlined by shoegazing alternative rockers Silversun Pickups (Sunday, Sept. 9), mashup superstar Girl Talk (Saturday, Sept. 8), and the world music-tinged indie folk of Beirut (Friday, Sept. 7).

Beyond the Square, MusicfestNW will once again take over the city of Portland for five days, with 150 bands playing at 16 clubs all over the city. On Wednesday, Sept. 5, electropop upstarts Passion Pit headline the Crystal Ballroom (the band also plays the next night) and reunited post-hardcore titans Hot Snakes play the Roseland Theater. Critics’ darlings Ceremony, Julia Holter, Lightning Bolt, The Men, Trust, and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart will all be performing special sets of over the September weekend. The festival also features alt-country act Old 97’s playing their seminal record Too Far to Care front-to-back, the beautiful folk tunes of The Tallest Man on Earth, local atmospheric rockers The Helio Sequence, rising hip-hop phenoms Danny Brown and Yelawolf, A-Trak DJing on the Nike Sportswear stage, and the debut of the Red Bull Common Thread series featuring guitar heroes Dinosaur Jr. with sets from the bands’ two offshoots, Sebadoh and J. Mascis.

Willamette Week is also proud to announce the debut of its very own tech conference to coincide with MusicfestNW. Portland has a rich and underrated tech scene, and in its first year, Portland Digital eXperience (PDX) will extend the MusicfestNW beyond music to embrace the technology and startup community by featuring conversations with leading thinkers, both local and from outside Portland. The event, held September 6-8, will focus on individuals who exemplify an “attention to detail, creativity, and the craft of building compelling experiences.” Among the confirmed speakers are Aaron Draplin of Draplin Design Co., Evan Doll of Flipboard, James Keller of Walmart Labs, and Chris Teso of Chirpify.

Previous MFNW performances include: The National, The Decemberists, Smashing Pumpkins, Modest Mouse, Vampire Weekend, TV on the Radio, Explosions in the Sky, Sunny Day Real Estate, Spoon, Iron & Wine, M. Ward, Built to Spill, Arctic Monkeys, Cat Power, Panda Bear, Black Lips, Band of Horses and The Silver Jews.

Festival wristbands and tickets for shows at Pioneer Courthouse Square, Crystal Ballroom, Roseland Theater, and Aladdin Theater go on sale on Friday, June 1 via Cascade Tickets. Festival wristbands are on sale at two price points:

- $125 for an all-inclusive wristband that gets you into all three outdoor shows and the rest of the five-day festival.

Big Freedia, the reigning queen of the rich New Orleans Bounce music scene, is releasing her debut EP on the intrepid Scion A/V label. Slated for a March 29th release, the EP will mark a turning point in the relatively marginalized yet staunchly creative Bounce community. Proponents of the genre are an accurate representation of the diverse NOLA populace at large: rich, poor, famous, unheard of, stark and serious or tongue-in-cheek. Big Freedia occupies a unique place within its strata, somewhere between Lil Wayne and Lady Unique. Scion A/V Presents: Big Freedia has the potential to push the genre onto a national stage and into the collective music consciousness where it belongs; New Orleans will be heard.

Produced largely by local staple BlaqNmilD, Scion A/V Presents Big Freedia is Bounce at its best- bass driven, unrelenting, catchy and fun- quick to prompt sweaty after-parties and dance-floor freak-outs. From the penetrating stabs of opener “Almost Famous” and the ominous follow-up “Excuse” to later cuts like the radio-ready “Let It Go Nah” and “Look At Her”, Freedia mines the Bounce sound to produce sonic gems glimmering with staccato snares, 808 subs, and frenzied vocals that threaten an impending club riot.

In its continual effort to show support for the arts, Scion covers all production, licensing and distribution costs for the A/V projects and all proceeds go directly back to the label and artists involved. “I think Scion could become the new model for corporate partnerships. We have a proactive approach to content development around a brand and product, and feel that young people are genuinely receptive to what we’re doing” says Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotions for Scion.

On August 31st, Matt and Kim will release “Cameras”, the first single off their upcoming third full-length album, out this fall via FADER Label. Recorded in Atlanta, GA with producer Ben Allen, “Cameras” will be Matt and Kim’s first new original music since the release of their critically acclaimed sophomore album Grand.

The release of the new single follows their recent show at this year’s Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago. From the moment they appeared on the Adidas MEGA stage at sunset to the end of their hour-long set, Matt and Kim delivered their trademark stamp: a jaw-dropping, down, dirty, ass shaking performance. MTV News described it as being in front of a “huge group of people who were hanging on their every keyboard pound and drum slap.” and Billboard proclaimed Matt and Kim’s set was “the happiest hour of the day.”

Don’t miss Matt and Kim when they tear out on a coast-to-coast North American tour this fall. Head over to http://www.mattandkimmusic.com or www.myspace.com/mattandkim and get the newest information regarding their upcoming album release.
