Who says music can’t help people? After tallying all the numbers from last month’s Noise for the Needy Festival, the non-profit announced that it raised $24,781 over four nights. That money will go to Teen Feed, a Seattle-based organization that serves more than 11,000 meals each year to more 600 homeless youth in the area. According a press release, those proceeds will feed 2,500 more kids this year. Plus, all the added publicity from Teen Feed inspired 40 more people to volunteer with the organization. Maybe this year’s high-quality, highly local lineup had something to do with the event’s success: headliners included The Album Leaf, Visqueen, John Vanderslice, Portland Cello Project, Horse Feathers, Tiny Vipers, The Maldives and Whalebones.

New sights, new sounds; that’s what a road trip is all about. And that’s why a good weekend getaway on our states’ highways and byways is an absolute necessity. In that spirit of adventure, Sound took a handful of up-and-coming Northwest musicians on three unconventional road trips to explore the off-beat bounty of Washington and Oregon. Indie folk-pop band the Pica Beats, innovative Seattle emcee GMK and Portland folk songsmiths Horse Feathers brought their favorite road music to share and graciously let Sound’s photographers film the whole escapade. Check out photos and video of each act performing at the Sound magazine website.
