Ben Meyercord's Live Music Picks for Friday, September 10th

Hello Dear Readers,

As you undoubtedly have noticed, MFNW is in full swing. There are about million shows happening. As you may or may not have heard I am covering the Nike Sports Wear music events that happened yesterday and today. Check out the videos to see how I look decked out in Nike gear. Anyway due to a lack of time and Internet I was not able to post a blog yesterday. Which is a shame because both Sallie Ford and The Thermals played MFNW representing Portland proudly. Today I also kinda have a lack of time, but I want to share some my Portland-centric MFNW picks:

Doug Fir is having Blue Giant play as part of a KEXP show. The show is FREE and Early.

Hawthorne Theatre is having Morning Teleportation (10 PM) and Guidance Counselor. The show is $15.

Holocene is having AU, White Hinterland, Nice Nice(9:30 PM), and Swim Swam Swum (8:30 PM). The show is $10.

Backspace is having Astrology (8 PM). The show is $10
