The second annual PDX Noisefest was held at Reed College in Portland, OR on April 1st and 2nd, 2005. Nearly 20 acts from across the globe gathered in the Student Union to blast their noise and do their thing. While most acts were from the Cascadia (west-coast) region, there was also representation from the east coast of the US and from Japan.

The playlist below is all of the raw/unaltered recordings from the CDs that
I got from the individual with the minidisc recorder. You can stream or download
these tracks from here, or you can download the high quality
.flac originals from
from the internet archive.

These were recorded on a 2005 handheld point-and-shoot camera in near darkness,
so please understand that the quality is definitely lacking. They were originally .avi,
but have been converted to
.webm for easy playing on the web.
