pdx pop now! 2011
Portland music fans will be pleased to find out that PDX Pop Now! has announced the track listing for the eighth installment of their much heralded compilation. The 2-disc set is stacked with 41 tracks from some of Portland OR's finest musicians. O Bruxo, Blue Skies For Black Hearts, Swahili, Lost Lander, along with DJ papi chulo and DJ GIGANTE, have been tapped to perform and provide music between bands at this year's CD Release Benefit which will be held June 2nd at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison St.). The cover is $10 and that will include a copy of the 2011 PDX Pop Now! Compilation CD. PDX Pop Now! and Holocene have made special arrangements with the OLCC to allow minors into the benefit, so this show is ALL-AGES!

    Would I be a happier person if I had heard of more of these bands?

    We do so love the PPN operation and everything they do for All-Ages music here in portland - we're all better off for having them here. But, despite it being a totally open process (read Carys many comments on the PPN posts over the years) - the discs do lack on the crunchy stuff.

  4. We hope that more crunchy bands submit tracks in the future! (Not to say that they didn't this year) We recognize that we can always improve.

    Thanks!

  5. 2nd to Nick, and thanks to Show-Bot... I just want to quickly point out that Wizard Rifle, Red Fang, Johnny Reno &VM, BOOM! could all potentially qualify as "heavy" or "crunchy," but it depends on your definition... we definitely strive to represent many sides of Portland's music and while there's always room to improve, it's hard to represent everyone's idea of heavy/crunchy/hardcore/doom/speed/metal/thrash/punk/grind when you also have to include so many other genres & styles. 40 tracks may seem like a lot, but it's still never enough to contain all Portland's artists have to offer... that's what makes PDX great! & yes @Scragz, part of our goal is highlight bands that most people, even locally, might not know about (yet)... I hope you check them out. Thanks for reading and for listening!

dick all you musicians are narcissists... you know this, right? get up on your stage and say "look at me!" "i'm better than you because i'm up here, and you're down there!" sing your anti-capitalist songs and convince me i'm supposed to buy your merch i suppose? well fuck you, you self-absorbed hypocrite. i have more respect for the nazis in the OLCC who shit on your poser, anarchist wanna-be egos.
