1.Karma Bear Seeks Spare Change

1/23

Indie rockers love Portland, OR. The Rose City is the adopted hometown of artists from the Shins to Pavement's Stephen Malkmus and the Pixies' Frank Black. It also hosts the annual Musicfest NW festival, five days of music, drinking, and dancing that features bands from Oregon and beyond. This year's acts included Arctic Monkeys, Girl Talk, Sunny Day Real Estate, Bad Brains, Fucked Up, and hometown heroes Modest Mouse -- plus up-and-comers like Portugal. The Man, the Like, Youth Group, and more.

SPIN photog Ian Witlen's took to the city's streets, clubs, bars, and theaters to capture the festival's best moments, collected here.
