The Musicfest NW lineup has arrived!
Well, make that a partial lineup—it seems about 8% smaller than last year's list—since there are a few acts still yet to be named. This year's festival is set to run September 16-19th, and while it's currently not up, supposedly you can head to this page for all the details on obtaining MFNW tickets, badges, and souvenir windbreakers.

End Hits: Sunny Day Real Estate, The Get Up Kids... looks like someone has been reading my diary, circa 1998. Wait, where's Christie Front Drive?
