What's the Gathering of the Goof Punx?
Only the finest DIY Festival in the world, and it's happening right here in Portland, Oregon April 5th-8th. Forget about the corporate shwill of South by Southwest, Musicfest NW, and all other such bullshit - the Gathering of the Goofpunx is a homemade, not-for-profit fest, celebrating DIY culture and music.
Event organizers have a parade planned, a punk rock spelling bee, the world's biggest game of knockout (you know, that schoolyard basketball game!), and a whole shit ton of amazing DIY bands that have never had their music used in a Gap commercial or Navy advertisement.
After paying the venues and giving the touring bands some gas money, all proceeds are going to local charities and non-profits. BUT, they still need to pay those venues and touring bands, which will cost over 3,000 dollars. You can help by visiting the kickstarter page:
Keep an eye on all the goof punx shows here. See you all in April!
