The unofficial beginning of music festival season in Portland just got a whole lot more real. PDX Pop Now! has announced the lineup for their annual all-ages musical all-you-can-eat set to take place July 22nd-24th. Names you know and names you don't will be pouring hearts and souls out across two stages over those three days. Adding to the intrigue is the fact that for the first time it will all be taking place at the decidedly swanker digs found at Refuge PDX (no offense, Rotture). Movin' on up!
The PDX Pop Now! folks have put together this fine video presentation detailing all those involved- maybe even your band! I'd dare say it's a Scrabble theme they're after, set to the soothing sounds of Brainstorm. Have a look/listen...
I don't want to ruin anything for anybody that has yet to watch, but MINDERS? RADIATION CITY? LOST LANDER? Yes, that'll do! (actually, they had me at And And And and were totally over-killing it by Blouse, but shhhhhh!). Here's the full lineup in unanimated form. See you there!
Full disclosure: opbmusic is proud to be the year-round media sponsor of PDX Pop Now!, but we'd be writing about it anyway.
