Who's going to Music Fest NW?

The annual Music Fest runs Sept 5-9, bringing lots of shows to town.

I'm not sure that we'll actually run any meetups during the Fest, since folks are usually bouncing around from venue to venue, but thought it might be worth seeing what shows people are excited about. Please add a comment if you're buying a wristband and have some favorites!

    Personally - I'll be at the Girl Talk show on Saturday (and may try to catch Redd Kross as well), and on Thursday I'm leaning toward the southern bill at Roseland (Old 97s, Jason Isbell). Lots to choose from!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
