If it's too loud, than... well, it's probably too loud. The inaugural Quiet Music Festival of Portland just might be the only music fest that wants nothing to do with volume. Curated by LA/Portland artist Chris Johanson, the event hosted by Disjecta on August 12 and 13 is made up of national and local acts that share a common goal of “emotional, vibrant and low volume” music.
So, basically it'll be like that one episode of Queensrÿche Unplugged, right?
Performers include Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio), Stephen Malkmus, Tom Greenwood (Jackie-O Motherfucker), Golden Bears, Dragging an Ox Through Water, and plenty more. Tickets are a bargain at $7 per show, or $12 for both nights. Use your indoor voice and softly click the link below for the full lineup.
End Hits: Due to noize complaints, Quiet Riot Fest has been canceled.
