CHOICEFEST: Black Pussy, Witch Mountain, Transient, Don Peyote, Mendozza

(Black Lodge) CHOICEFEST (aaaah, it's yelling at us!) is a four-day festival celebrating "absolutely no all-dude bands!" Sounds awesome. Tonight's last-day bill features Portland's Black Pussy (don't google it!), whose dirty rock and simple but perfect lyrics won me over immediately. They whine: "Is there anybody feeling what I'm feeling when I'm feeling what I'm feeling for you?" and I just, you know, feel it. Also up are Portland doom-metalers Witch Mountain, whose Bandcamp you should check out partly because it features a hilarious witchy, dragony, skull-encrusted map of Oregon. If you've ever complained about ladies not getting their due in the music scene, put your money and time where your motherfucking mouth is and come support this stuff. ANNA MINARD
